Parking brake questions Ford 2006
The previous owner never used the parking brake. I started using the parking brake. When I released the parking brake, I put the car in reverse, the tires grabbed real bad & the noise could be heard inside the house. I had to put it in drive and go forward a little before I could go in reverse. I am not using the parking brake until the problem is fixed & parked lower in the driveway. I am pretty sure it is a parking brake issue, I notice the parking brake pedal was not all the way back, until later that day. It worse after it is wet. My driveways is on an incline.
What is the problem & how much would a mechanic charge for this(ballpark)?
Any recalls on this issue?
Here is how I put on the parking brake according the Ford manual, I am on an incline. Keep Car in Drive, brake , put parking on, Shift to Park, release the normal brake slowly.
I may not be releasing it correctly. What is the correct way to release it-When you have to back out it?
