    4.6L Tech
    At about 0-20 e-brake light is turns on then at 20 turns off but if you step on it the light turns on again. My e-brake is disengaged. Brake fluid is fine. I notice a slight smell of something burnt towards the rear driver side tire. Would this mean that my brake is engaged and stuck? If so how...

    V6 Tech
    I've had my v6 for about 3 years now and this is the first inkling of any transmission problem I've had.

    Please help, my 89 convertible is getting low on fuel and I can't get to the fuel door button because something is keeping the glove box latch from releasing.

    Hey guys, I had H&R 25mm wheel spacers put on my car to clear my brembo brake calipers. The dealership must have used an impact gun to put the bolts on because one of them is impossible to get off. I am trying to remove them to see if 15mm spacers will work. I tried just about everything to...

  14. 1997 GT Parking Brake Sticky

    4.6L Tech
    I'm not entirely sure how long this has been going on, but my parking brake has issues. Either the springs aren't strong enough, or the cable is stuck, but the driver's side brake seems to stay almost all the way engaged. The other side works fine, but is not enough to actually hold the car. So...

  18. Stuck gear in Starter

    V6 Tech
    My car wasn't starting and turning the ignition key didn't do anything. No noise, nothing. The warning lights/indicators would come on, the blower and wipers worked, so it wasn't the battery. I read somewhere that rocking the car with no e-brake on and it being in gear can release a possible...
