2006 Dodge Grand Caravan has been sitting for a couple of weeks, rear left wheel will not turn.


It seems like the hand brake is stuck on. when a vehicles is left for a long time it is best to leave to hand break off and leave in gear or chock the wheels. if the handbrake locks up the lever will go down but the mechanism is still on the back wheels. Try hitting the wheel with a block of wood or a rubber hammer to losen it off. ensure you do not damage the brake lines or other parts of the vehicle, then try driving slowly backwards then forwards to see if it comes free.

I hope this was useful.

Sounds like a locked up brake caliper. Try loosening the brake line going to that caliper. If that releases that brake its either a frozen caliper or a master cylinder problem. Has anyone added brake fluid to the system lately?

If it only does it during braking, it's not an axle. Likely culprits are warped rotors or bad suspension bushings.

A warpped rotor will cause the brakes on that rotor to grab and release as the rotor goes around, causing a shake. This is often felt in the brake pedal as a pulsing as well.

Failed front suspesion bushings can cause this as well, esppecially on front wheel drive cars.. When you are accelerating, your wheels are pulling the control arms forward, but when you brake, the control arms are pushed backwards. So, depending on what bushings are worn out, your alignment can change pretty drastically going from accelerating to braking or vice-versa. This would also account for the moving/hitting sensation you described. To check this you need to jack up the front of the vehicle and check the control arm bushings, as well as any other bushings for links/parts connected to the control arm.

It sounds like a problem within the front differential, possibly broken spider gears. If so broken gear shrapnel may be jamming that wheels output shaft.

Wheels will not move-car has sat all winter.


hi, if the car has been sitting all this time with the parking brake on then the chances are your brakes are siezed on, now the parking brake locks the back wheels so this is where you should start looking for problems.

now the front wheels should be ok you can try them by jacking each wheel up and try spinning them by hand the front will be stiff but should turn with a bit of force.

how ever you could also jack the back wheels up to check they are solid if they are then you have two options the first would be to give the back wheels a few hits with a big hammer, you will need to hit them pretty hard and doing this should free the brakes enough for you to get the car moving. do this to both sides and you should find you can then use the car.

if after doing this they are still **** then your going to need to take the back wheels off and get a big hammer and keep hitting the back drum till the brakes free up, you wont be able to get to the brakes until they have freed up a bit as the brakes will be holding the drum onto the hub so you need to get them freed up first.

if you try forcing the car to much you can damage the drum at the back beyond repair so be warned.

hitting the middle of the back wheels with a sledge hammer will usually free the wheels up allowing you to move the car once it has started to move the brakes should free up over use.

your brakes wont be much good to start of with as they will be badly corroded so bare this in mind when driving.

you may need to hit the center of the wheels a few times then try moving forwards and backwards then you may need to hit the center of the wheel again, it may take a while but it will free up if you keep going.

My park avenue has been sitting for 3years. I dropped the tank and cleaned it and it started right up. when I put into gear it wont go.


Hi the chances are the brakes are seized solid if this is the case then hitting the center of the back wheels with big hammer can free the parking brake, if the parking brake has been on all this time then this is going to be your problem, if the hammer dont work then your going to need to keep working the car backwards and forwards until the seized brakes free up, give it a hit with a hammer and then try moving back and forwards keep doing this until the brakes are free.

one way of testing the brakes is to jack the wheels up one at a time and see if you can turn the wheels by hand hopefully the front wheels should turn but the chances are the back are stuck solid

2007 Dodge Magnum, RT/AWD - Front Driver side wheel area noise, like snow/ice was caught up under, checked notheing. One month later the noise came back but with a vengence. Now makes the noise at all...


Check the Brakes first. Are the pads worn down to metal. Is the Caliper Stuck (open)?
Raise and Support the Front and Rear (because of AWD) of the vehicle.
Remove the left front tire. Make sure the Parking Brake is engaged. Place the lug nuts back on the lug studs. Place the Vehicle in Neutral. Turn the wheel (without the tire on) and listen for where the noise is coming from. A bad bearing will feel rough (not smooth) and sound 'crackly' when trying to turn the one wheel. Make sure it is not from the CVJ.
If not smooth: Remove and Replace the wheel bearing. And yes you can do it yourself saving you about $150-$200 dollars. It is a bolt-on (4 bolts) bearing. Bolt Heads should be on the back side of the steering knuckle.
Remove the Brake Caliper, Caliper Brace, and Rotor.
Remove the 4-bolts (turn the wheels left and right to better access these bolt heads) and slip the bearing off the Axle. You may have to hit the bearing to loosen it.

you could have a damaged drum .. many auto parts stores can test that for you .. could be a bent axel or flange (spin the rear wheel and see if it woobles ... or maybe you have a bent lug bolt .. the other symptoms you have are typical of a stuck emergency brake cable .. shoe/drum type brakes are regenerative in the forward direction .. that is they work with greater force forward than backwards .. so if you have a stuck emergency brake cable (and thats common for dodge) then you may have overheated the drum causing warping .. you can check to see if the cable moves freely by pulling sidways on it (if its open) or having someone operate and release with you under the truck .. it should move maybe an inch and release quickly . of course a bent flange or axel can cause a similar result ..

Hydro planed and rear wheel hit curb, bent in 45 degrees


on rear wheel drive the hub and bearing assembly is connected to an axle.the axle will have to be replaced more than likely.in a front wheel drive with independent rear suspension,an upper and or lower control arm and hub.either way is expensive and your insurance deductible will be alot cheaper than the 2500 to 3000 dollars it will take to repair it.
