Ha, so I had that little problem with the overdrive yesterday. Get up this morning, check the relay, change all the fuses... o/d problem is no more. "Sweet!" I say, "I'll go for a drive!" Get in the car, start it up, take it for a spin around the block. Engine is running and idling great, only problem is the grinding of the front pads every time I come to a stop.
Anyway, here's the good part. I turn back into my neighborhood (brakes probably sparking at this point), and go to stop at the stop sign at the end of my street. Give the brake a nice push at about 5mph... *POP/SNAP!* I hear a loud noise from somewhere near the front drivers-side wheel. Car keeps moving forward. At this point, I am literally fearing for my life. I'm ready to hop out the door and "ghost ride the whip" (so to speak) right into the lake in front of my house. I'm pressing on the brake pedal and all I'm getting is the *woosh* of hydraulics, while the pedal basically hits the floor. Downshift, e-brake, not so screeching halt. So I limp home, and give as good a look as I can without jacking up the car. I'm leaking brake fluid from somewhere right behind the front wheel. BUMMER.
Any advice/info other than "Take care of your brakes, stupid?"
