Ask a QuestionSearch for Locking Up Questions - Page 1 of 1


Since I changed one of my brake lines on my 89 pontiac bonneville my front brakes keep locking up and have caught on fire twice.
The automatic gear shift on my 2003 Toyota Camry has started locking up and I cannot drive. The AAA guy gave me a temporary solution (he showed me a small area to the left of the gear shift that was hidden, opened it up and when I press it down, the gear shift moves. Why is the car doing this-can you tell me? Any idea what it should cost to repair?
When driving the front locks up. The car sounds like the brakes are locking up and the car skids. I have been told it is the yaw sensor. It is necessary to keep on the car?
