Transmission stuck in reverse and won’t stop ?

My daughter is driving my son’s 2000 Explorer while he is deployed in Iraq- she is away at school and had an issue tonight – she put the car in reverse, then put the brake on and put it in drive… the car stayed in reverse… she said she tried to brake and it wouldn’t completely stop- she threw it into park, shut it off and turned it on again and it was okay… she said this happened one time last month, too. Any ideas???

Answer:

the only way the truck will stay in reverse is if the reverse band does not disengage. the problem is internal trans. either the valve in the valve body is getting stuck or the servo is not releasing. either way the trans is going to have to come apart to fix.
 

After the brake job I had burning brakes (bad) smell and rotar burning.

I have a 2001 Explorer Sport (not Trac). I had a brake job done about 5 months ago. After the brake job I had burning brakes (bad) smell and rotar burning. After several visits they said they put Sport Trac brake pads on rather than Explorer sport. After the job they seemed fine but my anti-lock keeps kicking on even with minior stop and go driving. Now the first time out on a warm day (60+) I find they are burning again! Any advice before I go back to the shop and fight the good fight??? This is getting very old and scary!

Answer:

you either have a caliper sticking, or they did not adjust the rear drums right.

if i did a brake job and drove it down the street and smelled anything, it would be back on my rack with the wheels off.

theres no excuse for putting your life in danger by not having the brakes right.

I have a 2008 Saturn Aura, 8500 miles with Brake pedel squeak sound. I took it to the dealer and he lubricated the pedel hardware. This did not fix the problem.   I then tried the brake fluid flush oultined in the bulletin. It did not fix the problem. Here it is:

Answer:

this is a common issue on this vehicle. In a lot of cases simply changing the brake fluid will not fix the problem. In a lot of cases I have had to change the entire master cylinder to fix the problem. You need to take the vehicle back to the dealer and coplain until they do this.
