"To release the parking brake, hold the regular brake pedal down with your right foot. Push down momentarily on the parking brake pedal with your left foot until you feel the pedal release. If the parking brake is not released when you began drive, the brake system warning light comes on and a chime sounds as a warning that the parking brake is still on."

  • 09 Chevy Malibu LT it is a 4cyclinder. I was at a stop light and when I took my foot off the brake, press the gas, engine revs a couple of times before shifting in gear to drive. What is wrong? 1 answer

    engine revs anytime I press on the gas pedal until it kicks into gear to drive. Would a new transmission fix this? I was told the drum and pin was broke and a new transmission would fix the problem.
