Could be that the rotors are "out of round" and need either to be resurfaced or replaced

Parking brakes stick if left applied in cold weather

Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts.

That will depend on many factors including driving habits. The brakes could last 30,000 - 150,000 miles.

Could be, the brake pad wear indicators, rust,

If the back dash light will light when the brakes are applied but the two tail lights will not light up, there is probably a short in the wiring somewhere. It could also be that the fuse for the brake lights is burned out.

Could have either on the rear. Both were an option.

The general rule of thumb is 1 car length for every 10MPH. But this varies with road conditions, tires, brakes, car, grade, and more. In reality it could be twice as far.

if they are drum brakes it could be that the drums friction surface has a defect on it and everytime the shoes hit it it pops or it could be a bad hold down or quieter spring in the drum itself

Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts.

If the rear brakes are drum brakes, then there could be a leaky wheel cylinder. The wetness inside the drum will cover all the brake shoes and parts and cause the wheel to lock up when applied. The build of pressure could be due to the wheel cylinder leaking and causing a pressure loss, but rising when the brakes are applied or pumped up. This may/may not be your case, but definitely worth checking the rears.

If the car vibrates when the brakes are applied, it could be a sign that the brakes or rotors need to be checked or replaced. When a problem like this occurs, it is best to get it checked out as soon as possible to avoid worsening the problem.

It could just be that when you push the brakes the fluid level goes below the proper level. add fluid and see if stops.

One possiblity could be the power brake booster is shot. When you apply the brakes it creates a large vacuum leak, enough to stall engine.

The brakes could be hanging up. caliper, or hose problem.

Your brakes are sticking could be either the brake caliper or the hose going to the caliper

Have the tires and wheels checked. It could be a bent wheel or a damaged tire.

It could be a leaking vacuum hose to the power brake booster or the membrane in the booster could have a hole. When the brakes are applied, the booster is opened to the engine vacuum via the hose. The vacuum leak would then increase, causing the engine to stall.

yes adjust them so there is a half inch of free travel when not applied i wouldn't go by the travel when they are applied because you have 120psi pushing them out, you could adjust them to tight

Could be the brake fluid reservoir is low which would be telling you the brakes need attention. Could be parking brake not fully released

This could be caused from the closing off of the flex line or a bad caliper or a bad master cylinder

It is impossible to give error free diagnosis online but your power brake booster or check valve could be defective It is impossible to give error free diagnosis online but your power brake booster or check valve could be defective. This will casce engine vaccuum to drop when brakes are applied causing the engine to run lean. This causes rough idle and stalling. Car should run ok until brake are applied
