      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; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com 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

    My abs and parking break light stay on when I start my truck and they don't shut off.
    Autozone checked for codes but none came up. The lights originally came on while I was driving down the high way

      Check brake fluid in master cylinder. If low it keep brake light on.

      Several methods; chisel and hammer, or you can cut off with a dremel or rotary saw. You will need tools to do this job to remove lug nuts which are rounded off.
