    Is brake squeaking and rust rotors related and normal?
    Only 17, 000 miles and I have noticed that all four rotors have rust on them. My brakes started squeaking a few weeks ago and I don't know if this is related. Someone said this is normal, but I just can't agree. Help!

      This maybe an issue with the ABS system. When a vehicle comes to an aggressive stop, the brakes release and apply quickly to prevent a wheel lock up and loss of vehicle control. This could be normal operation of the ABS system or an issue. The idle could be a multitude of problems that would cause an engine misfire such as worn spark plugs and/or coil(s), fuel pressure issue, vacuum leak, or computer issue. Is any dash light on?

      There are no active warning lights on the dash - although last week, my wife was pulling into a parking space, the steering wheel locked up, the engine died, and virtually every dash light (including check engine) lit up. After turning the car off and restarting, the car was back to normal.

      As for the idle, the engine occasionally sounds like it's caught in mid-rev while it is parked. If I apply the accelerator briefly and release, engine sound returns to normal.
