If there is not a release lever then maybe its a "Press to release style" try lightly stepping down on it again to see if it releases.

Note: Do not drive your car with the E-brake engaged, it will at the least wear out the rear brakes and at most (in extreme cases)cause the brake surfaces to get extremely hot and warp, and possibly cause a fire.

2001 L300 V6 won't shift out of park. Brake lights work. ????

Hi jeff

If your car cannot shift out of park, have some one monitor the brake lights for you, or if you are alone, put something on the pedal and walk around back.

1) If the brake lights are NOT on when the pedal is depressed, the sensor/switch which turns them on, and also opens the shift interlock, is not functioning because a) it is broken, b) it is dirty or c) it has become disconnected.

2) If this is your problem, get your head under the dash (move the seat back and sit in it like Neil Armstrong, bring a flashlight). There are three plastic push pins holding the bottom of the dash in, remove them and place in a safe container. Remove the lower dash cover, also remove the plastic hose for the heating A/C... it comes right off, no problem.

3) Look at the pedal, there are two switches. The one closest to the door is the offender. Sometimes wiggling it will cause it to operate, but without replacing it, you will not have brake lights... so don't do this just to get on the road, you may get rear ended. Twist the switch and pull it out. Now it will be easier to mess with. When the car is running with the e-brake on and the car in park, when the switch is operated, you can hear the clicking of the interlock. But if it's not happy, it will get hot, so don't mess with it too much.

4) Get a new switch, and install it. If you are stuck at home with no car and are technically minded and the brave type, you can take this switch apart and repair it for short term use, or just blast the heck out of it with some lithium grease. Try just the grease first because the switch is evil to take apart and repair... I DO NOT recommend trying to fix the switch. I did, but you might not be able to and will now have a car which cannot move out of park until you get a new switch and you will curse my name every minute you spend wallking to the dealership.

5) The brave person has ignored my warning and now has no idea what they have in front of them... so here goes.
*The switch consists of a top and a bottom, two springs, three contacts, a square-ish sliding part and the plunger.
*CAREFULLY pull the square slider off the plunger, yes, it ratchets, so don't break it.
*Pull the contacts out of the bottom. The Contact which sits on the plunger, actually goes underneath them, so when you put this all back together, put in the big spring first, the small contact, and then the two big contacts.
*Now, carefully slide the square-ish slider into the assembly so that it goes into the middle contact, these parts only goe in one way, so experiment with it, one is easy, the other isn't, just pay attention.
*Put the top part of the switch back on, yes, the plunger is still on the counter. This is easier this way.
*When it is all back together, push the plunger in a LITTLE BIT.
*Plug it back in to the wire assembly BEFORE installing it to make sure that it works.

6) Now, with the brake pedal in the resting position (as in, not pushed to the floor) push the switch into place, you will hear it ratchet as the plunger goes in. Check to see if when you press the pedal you get lights. Adjust the plunger so that you do.

7) Drive to the dealer BEFORE you put the dash back together, buy new switch, replace it, drive home, drink beer, put dash back together.

How to replace a fuel filter in a 1996 Buick Park Avenue?

Usually under the car unibody frame drivers side, one side of the filter has a wrench fitting to a flared pipe feed the other side uses a built in quick release you squeeze 2 plastic tabs to pop off the line, it may have a metal band bracket also to keep it attached safely, no lit cigarettes here, there will be residual gas that will need to be contained properly when lines are released.

I have a briggs &straton intek 26 hp and the compresion seems to be not releasing.what can i do?

If the valves are adjusted too loose, the compression release will not work, and will make starting the engine difficult. I believe the clearance is supposed to be .005". If the clearance is too large, the 'bump' on the cam will not move the valve off its seat when cranked slowly, and compression will make the engine hard to crank over.

1988 ford taurus lx right rear brake smokes

At this age, the parts in the brake assembly need to be replaced. The brake line may be stopped up, and the brake can't release like it should. Have all the brake lines checked.
Nothing wrong with having and older vehicle, but be prepared to replace whole systems from time to time.

I have a craftsman mower with the B&S 21hp Intek OHV motor, it starts fine but when you go to engage the blade or go forward or backward or release the parking brake it will die unless you disengage...

Check the switch on the seat, of all places. There's a safety switch on the seat that will kill the engine if it's not engaged when do anything other than start and run the engine.

If the switch checks out, get back with me.

The brake will not release. when I replaced the chain the housing will not set in proper place due to brake engaged. due to the housing not setting properly the brake handle does not set in proper place...

Look at how the brake handle engages the dogs for the brake actuating mechanism (kinda looks like a three bladed propeller).
Make it clear inside your head which way it has to turn to release the brake. Get two 1/4 inch by 2 inch or so bolts and clamp them in a vise so they are spaced in such a way as to slip in between the dogs on the actuator. Not too deep...just deep enough to grab them.
Place the housing over the bolts and in between the dogs of the actuator and turn the actuator in the desired direction. There is a fair bit of pressure so be sure which way your are turning it. It should rotate then suddenly release as it cams over. Voila....brake off!
Assemble as per normal.
Take care.
