My Chevrolet 2006 has some braking problems. The steering wheel vibrates all the time and always veers to the left. When I apply the brakes, especially downhill, I feel the brake pedal presses itself more than I do. Sometimes, though not very often, the brakes won't work, and it sounds like it's grinding for one or two seconds. When that happens, I release the brakes and apply them again super fast. Can you help me understand where the problems are and what I should repair or replace?
The first thing you need to do is remove all four wheels and inspect all caliper slide pins, pistons, and brake pads and shoes. It sounds to me like some components aren't moving freely and are getting stuck causing the pulling and noises. If you don't know what to look for, have a mechanic who knows what they are doing and are reputable to inspect the brakes.
