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 in
anyone 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
>>
>>23856701
Nevermind, I have figured it out. THanks anyways guys!
>>
>>23856701
Brake caliper is seized
Don't try and work on it, take it to a mechanic
>>
>>23856706

>>
>>23856706

>>23856708
i didnt..
>>
>>23856709
Yeah, calipers like to do that sometimes
Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to get it fixed
>>
>>23856707
No, thats not it, I just had the foot on the brake the whole time.
Still learning to drive lol
>>
>>23856714
this isnt me :(
>>23856713
I dont think its the breaks, I used them and they work fine
>>
>>23856714
Leave 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?
>>
>>23856720
Thanks for sticking up for me, this forum is weird.
I get that driving is bad with the breaks on BTW.
>>
>>23856719
Yeah, brakes will still work fine because you have four brake calipers (one on each wheel), but you can still have one get seized
Take a visual inspection at each brake (with hand brake off), and see if any of them is engaged (brake pad touching the disk)
>>
>>23856727
Ewww, 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.
>>
>>23856730
Lost, but please leave OP alone
>>
>>23856725
this isnt .. m

>>23856727
it 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?
>>
>>23856733
This is not me!!!
Can you please just stop it?
I don't want to rek my car and your're are not helping
>>
>>23856733
Honestly, I don't know, I never had this problem
Did you notice anything weird with the car? Revs dropping, accelerating but speed not increasing, engine randomly dying?
>>
>>23856733
I don't know really, never had a problem with brakes
Have you noticed anything wrong with the engine? Revs dropping suddenly, car not accelerating when pressing the pedal, engine randomly dying? Any warning lights?
>>
>>23856739
>>23856746
Not 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.
>>
>>23856746
no everything looked fine
>>23856761
please help
>>
>>23856701
the problem is it’s a piece of shit GM vehicle
>>
>>23856766
elaborate?
>>
>>23856767
it sucks
>>
OP, unfortunately we can't tell what's wrong with the car without taking a look at it
You gotta take it to a mechanic that has a scan tool
>>
>>23856780
I thought that this was a common problem and that the answer is "just drive it in"
>>
maybe the car is just slow
>>
>>23856792
but it was fast before

i found a dragon scale in the exhaust maybe it was just clogged?
>>
>>23856840
>>23856794
WTF????? WOO ARE YOU PEOPLE?
>>
>>23856862
try 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.
>>
>>23856869
thanks, anything else i should try out?
>>
>>23856869
I'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 driving
force like in, pressing on the gas
>>
>>23856880
She'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..
>>
>>23856895
yep 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
>>
>>23856907
Did your floor mat slide up underneath the gas pedal? (I'm serious actually look)
>>
>>23856914
dude no I always keep the floor mat away from the pedals
and I HEAR the engine dying when i'm in the third gear

also again, the breaks work fine
>>
>>23856918
I cant help without seeing it I guess, take it in before driving too much more bro
>>
The word is BRAKE, for fuck's sake.
>>
>>23857240
breake? brake break
>>
>>23856707
surely if he had a siezed caliper then it would pull to one side
>>23856701
you 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.
>>
>>23857998
im driving ritht nkw
