Having problems with your 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo ?
Rear brakes grinding and squealing upon start up
\015 I took my 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo in because the drum brakes were grinding in the rear. The mechanic inspected the brakes front and back, and determined two cylinders (one on each rear wheel) were leaking fluid. He replaced them, and the problem was solved. However, when I start my car and back it up out of my drive way, it grinds and squeaks. I get to the stop sign, stop and it does it again. I drive it for almost a mile, stop and get ready to turn onto the highway and it doesn't do it anymore during the time I drive. I have noticed that the outside past the tire are rusty. My mother said he used to drive the car in dusty areas, so it could be that. Thanks.\015
The rear brakes may not be adjusted properly causing them to rub on the drum take it back to the mechanic and have him adjust them so there is some slack
