This vehicle has trouble come p0703. When backing up in reverse from time to time it sounds like the emergency brake it stuck on. It just has that sound coming from the rear that you know it has a brake issue. Right front needs caliper changed I have everything to do it (just havnt done it yet). My problem is I dont know anything about e-brakes. Need help!
it also has engine issues when stepping down on the accelerator it will be very dogish like its misfiring or no spark idk its like its only running on 2-3 cyclinders. It does need air filter and plugs im just think there may be bigger issues. Anyone that could help before real issues that could be costly would be helpful. If driven long distance it also smells like burning rubber, its definitly burnt rubbers smell. (I know im all over the place here just trying to remember everything.
Reversing noise could be from brake pad wear indicator. Have the pads checkd.
If you have a problem and knows it and refuses to do any repair, why want to ask?

Its not about refusing to do it its having the time this car sits most of the time and when I do get the chance to work on it I want to try to cover all bases. Money is also an issue doing one thing at a time requires saving money for. Being a guy on social security and my wife drives the other vehicle about 600 miles a week to work and back we have very little money to work with. I have to have it right the 1st time.

Brakes concerns safety and since you know the front calipers needs attention, it should be attended to first. You cannot get everythign right the first time if it is not a related item. Do them one by one according to prirority.
