They used to have instructions on the transmission dipstick. Check idling in Park with the engine and transmission at full operating temperature. E-brake is cable operated rear drum brakes. It should self adjust the drum brake backing up and applying the brakes, but there may be some adjustment required in the cables. The rear brakes could be worn out or a cable maybe broken also.
