I'm really really new to driving, just got my loicense today I drove for a bit but it felt different as if the engine was a block of ice or as if the hand break was a bit inanyone able to explain this? I think i left the hand break in over a cold night pic related was the car if that matters, it's not mine btw
>>23856701Nevermind, I have figured it out. THanks anyways guys!
>>23856701Brake caliper is seizedDon't try and work on it, take it to a mechanic
>>23856706Well done OP, congratz on figuring it out for you're self :^)
>>23856706fucking kek no i haven't this isn't me >>23856707you serious? I plan to drive later today
>>23856709Yeah, calipers like to do that sometimesShouldn't take more than 30 minutes to get it fixed
>>23856707No, thats not it, I just had the foot on the brake the whole time.Still learning to drive lol
>>23856714this isnt me :(>>23856713I dont think its the breaks, I used them and they work fine
>>23856714Leave OP alone, Anon
also if it helps, the engine was really crying when accelerating as if i had the wrong gear in, does that make sense?
>>23856720Thanks for sticking up for me, this forum is weird.I get that driving is bad with the breaks on BTW.
>>23856719Yeah, brakes will still work fine because you have four brake calipers (one on each wheel), but you can still have one get seizedTake a visual inspection at each brake (with hand brake off), and see if any of them is engaged (brake pad touching the disk)
>>23856727Ewww, Im not doing that...Thats what mechanics fail highschool to do for minimum wage lol.If worse comes to wurst I will just get money for a new car from my parents.
>>23856730Lost, but please leave OP alone
>>23856725this isnt .. m>>23856727it felt more like there was something wrong with the engine, i mean if something were up with the breaks I'd feel it on one side no?
>>23856733This is not me!!!Can you please just stop it?I don't want to rek my car and your're are not helping
>>23856733Honestly, I don't know, I never had this problemDid you notice anything weird with the car? Revs dropping, accelerating but speed not increasing, engine randomly dying?
>>23856733I don't know really, never had a problem with brakesHave you noticed anything wrong with the engine? Revs dropping suddenly, car not accelerating when pressing the pedal, engine randomly dying? Any warning lights?
>>23856739>>23856746Not sure, I put fuel in "him" beforehand, but all fuel is the same right?
this thread just truly shows what an absolute beehive of fucking mongoloid inbreds /o/ is.
>>23856746no everything looked fine>>23856761please help
>>23856701the problem is it’s a piece of shit GM vehicle
OP, unfortunately we can't tell what's wrong with the car without taking a look at itYou gotta take it to a mechanic that has a scan tool
>>23856780I thought that this was a common problem and that the answer is "just drive it in"
maybe the car is just slow
>>23856792but it was fast before
i found a dragon scale in the exhaust maybe it was just clogged?
>>23856840>>23856794WTF????? WOO ARE YOU PEOPLE?
>>23856862try to break my encryption, its 4 letters
Try going at very low speed in neutral on a flat surface. If your car stops with a small jolt (as if you were applying braks) you probably have sticking brakes.
>>23856869thanks, anything else i should try out?
>>23856869I've looked into this, seems like this affects only breaks and or turning the wheel but for me it feels like the whole engine is sticky/frozen so i basically have to put in way more "force" than usual when drivingforce like in, pressing on the gas
>>23856880She's picked up a curse from an evil villain. Only true love's first kiss can break the spell.
holy shit this thread lmao Really does sound like a stuck caliper OP.Any smells come from the car after driving?You're 100% sure theres no warning lights on? tell us even if there was one on before this happened.Did anything out of the ordinary happen before this, literally anything at all? Even if it seems completely unrelated. Lots of things can cause lack of power but its hard to have any idea what it could be without even getting to look at it in person..
>>23856895yep no lights, no sounds smells, well the engine sounded like i was in the second gear the whole time and it didnt get as much power in higher gears than it used too also in the first gear i had to press on the gas WAY harder than usual to quickly start moving again
>>23856907Did your floor mat slide up underneath the gas pedal? (I'm serious actually look)
>>23856914dude no I always keep the floor mat away from the pedals and I HEAR the engine dying when i'm in the third gearalso again, the breaks work fine
>>23856918I cant help without seeing it I guess, take it in before driving too much more bro
The word is BRAKE, for fuck's sake.
>>23857240breake? brake break
>>23856707surely if he had a siezed caliper then it would pull to one side>>23856701you have no maintenance experience so whatever it is, you'll need to take it to a garage.you should just do that instead of causing more damage.
