      Add brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir. there is a float / height sensor in there and if it is lower than the minimum line the light will go on and off at different times depending on outside temperature and how you drive. Check it out.

      You need to check the front brakes . Either the right one is grabbing or the left one isn't working . You need to jack it up some how and take the tires off to see what is going on .

      Safely raise and support the vehicle. Remove the wheel.

      1. See this link and if the brake that matched with the picture, then it is a rotor.

      All 4 wheels should be removed and the brakes inspected. More information is needed. Have you had any work done?

    Calipers not retracting
    Calipers not retracting when brake pedal released, have cleaned exposed area of caliper pistons but did not dismantle anything. Bled at combination valve and master cylinder but probem persists. Do not believe this model is 4-wheel ABS.

      Several possibilities; faulty brake caliper (replace the caliper), dirty / contaminated brake fluid (replace / exchange the brake fluid in the system). Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the brake caliper from around $47.00 for your vehicle.

      Sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder. Should also do a complete brake inspection.

      First step - have the check engine light or stored fault codes scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' for more assistance.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires
