Have you got any other information about this problem. Have you inspected the brakes? Sometimes, if an axle seal is leaking, the drum will get saturated with axle grease and can cause the shoes to stick and bind until rolling breaks them free. Do you see any signs of leaking on the brake plates?

Car rolls back when you let off the gas


This is not uncommon. Pretty much any vehicle that does not have what is called "Hill Assist" is going to want to roll backwards when on a hill and the brake pedal is released. Millions of vehicles are not designed to remained stopped in place, on a hill, with no brakes applied.

Mazda Protege 2001. Started making some grinding noises and like failing to brake properly(which was rare in my car-excelent brakes). I took it to 2 diferent mech techn. and they solved the noises, but the...


The barke problem may be related to new or resurfaced brake rotors, the rotors and pads need time to brake in, they should of told you that you shouldnt do any hard braking or riding the brake for about 200 miles. this allows the new pads to break into the new rotors, what happens is the car will not stop as quick as it did before until the brakes break in but if you try to push on pedal harder to stop as before it wont, then the pads and rotors glaze up and brake is not going to get better, try easy braking and no sudden or hard stops for a while. as far as the idle of the engine, this has nothing to do with the brakes it maybe something else. if the ac is on the engine will rev up and down as compressor turns on and off, this may be the problem which is normal.good day.

2005 honda accord noise when breaking (transaxle)


You say you hear the noise when you "slow down". Does this mean you hear the thumping noise when you let off the gas and let the car coast to a stop or only when you are applying the brakes to decellerate?
If you only hear the noise while applying the brakes then I would assume it has something to do with your brakes. The first thing that comes to mind would be rotors that aren't true or warped which could make a thumping sound.

Do you feel any vibrations in your foot when it is applying pressure to the brake pedal? If you do feel a sort of pulsating feeling then it could very well be your brakes making the noise.

I hope I was of some assistance,

Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill


Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.
