Best Answer

Without knowing what kind of truck/car, I would believe that the best thing to do is take off the wheel and drum and have a look. Could be the springs, could be a brake fluid leak. Does the brake light come on? Do you have ABS? Could be a stuck parking brake cable. Is it drum or disc? If disc, could be a stuck piston in the caliper. Hope this helps.

What does it mean if truck starts to shake when gas pedal is pressed?

One reason that your truck might start to shake when the gas pedal is pressed is because the tires could need to be balanced. The problem could also be your shock absorbers, or struts. * It has less to do with the gas pedal as it has to do with parts affected by acceleration.

How do you release emergency brake on a 1999 Yukon with broken release?

Under the drivers seat area, under the truck on the frame rail, you will see the E-brake cable junction. Gently pry this apart and the brake will release. This will allow you to drive the vehicle until you can replace the release lever assembly. Remenber, your brake will not function until you replace the release lever. How about looking at the pedal mechanism just above the pedal and pulling on the release mechanism at the top of the toothed ratchet area where the cable would be if there was still a release cable.

How do you release the emergency brake if the cable is broke on a 1992 Chevy s10 it is the one you push with your foot?

It depends which cable is broken. If the main cable is broken under the truck, the brakes should release on their own. If the brakes dont release, the cables are frozen from rust and need to be replaced. If the release cable from the handle to pedal assemdly is broken reach under the dash above the pedal and find the small release arm. Pull the arm toward you [ the rear of vehicle ] and the emergency brake pedal will release.
