Drive Train / Driveline Malfunction Happens always Not applicable
Q: My emergency brake light is always on, and it started after we changed the brake pads.
Also the brakes are dragging, and the pedal goes all the way to the floor when I am stopped.
A: Sounds a lot like the master cylinder has been affected...
Possibly as you pushed the caliper pistons back into the calipers..... bringing sludge with it.....
This is of course, assuming that you did not open the bleeders during the brake job....
If you did, you'll have to bleed them.... Ed
Q: This vehicle has 46,000 miles on it. It has been in storage for 5 years (3,000 miles put on vehicle in 5 years). We pulled the truck out of storage, checked the oil and other fluids, installed new battery, and filled up with new premium gas. About 15 miles later pulling away from a light, still easy on the gas, as truck prepared to shift to second (motor gets on up into revs before shifting), motor shut down. There was no big sound, clunk, or anything, just silence. When I pulled over, oil was leaking down from motor with a little antifreeze mixed in. This was a steady stream of oil, not just a drip. Any help would be appreciated. I have not tried turning the motor over since this occured this morning.
A: Sounds like the front seal in the tranmission dry rotted from sitting. If the oil is comming from between the motor and tran. it is worse to leave a vehicle sitting than it is to drive it. Things dry rot when a vehicle sits.
