Use a thin viscosity lubricant or penetrating oil on the leafs. Spray 2 or 3 times with a half hour or so between sprays for optimum results.

Left front brake on 2005 dodge caravan locked up after a few minutes of driving. After it sat and cooled for thirty minutes or so it released. I replaced the front pads and rotors, and the left front...

Before getting carried away with more expensive fixes, I'd replace flex hose to caliper as well, and double check caliper moves freely while at it.

Depressurize the radiator of a 2005 Buick LeSabre. I would like a detailed diagram of how to do it along with instructions. Thanks.

Simply shutting off the vehicle and waiting till the engine cools down will depressurize the cooling system once the engine has cooled for half an hour to an hour or so turn the radiator cap slowly till it releases any remaining pressure. If the cap is to hot to touch or you can not hold onto it for long enough to open it than the engine is too hot yet and needs to cool longer.

Front passenger brake locked up roter got hot -after it cooled off-seems to be ok for now-do hose clamps have anythingto do with resricting the fluid to the brakes

if the brake flex hose(rubber)is clamped closed then yes they will stop or slow the flow to the calipers.they will also restrict the fluid when you release the pedal causing the caliper to lock.not sure what you mean by hose clamps.there is a clamp that fastens the hose to a metal bracket on the body (frame)of the could be a caliper that seized up and should be replaced even if its working now.

1985 Dodge Ram Pickup Truck The front brakes

your pressure metering valve could not be working as it should,follow you brake lines down from the master cylinder to the frame rail it is on the inside of the frame rail and the front lines and back lines come out of it,on the front of the valve there should be a small ruber boot there the boot can be removed and inside on the valve you will see a small pin that goes into the valve it should be able to be moved in and out if not it could be rusted stuck and that could cause your front brakes to not release the pressure and cause your problem,i have a 1984 that did the same thing,hope this helps you.

Front end vibrates when braking at highway speeds

Most common cause for this is rotors that have become warped. It is not uncommon if you drive fast and brake hard OR live in hilly country or with heavy loads. The brakes get hot - the more they are used the hotter they may get. When they cool they do not cool evenly. If there is enough of the rotor left it may be resurfaced to true it. However - the thinner it gets the less heat it can handle. When rotors reach a minimum thickness (stamped on the rotor) they must be replaced.

2000 caravan 3.0 stall after 20 min no spark restarts few hours later

This sounds like a bad (probably cracked) ignition coil.

First, the coil gets hot when operating, and this is normal.

If it is cracked, it gets hot to the point where its resistance gets so much higher that it cannot provide enough voltage for spark.

When it cools back down it starts working fine again.
