Default 1992 SSEi unknown problem

Ok so heres the problem, once in a while when i try to drive my 1992 SSEi it feels like i'm dragging something under the rear pass. tire, I get out and check but there'* nothing there. Usually it stops after a few min (3 tops) and it doesnt happen that often (only happened twice in the last 6 months) but i would like to know if there is a serious problem so i can fix it.

Did it happen after you used the emergency/parking brake? Could be a binding cable.

Can you give us any more info? Is there any noise? Feeling in the steering wheel?

In other words, what gives you the impression of something dragging?

Hmmmm....that'* not ringing any bells with me at the moment, but tell us a bit more...

When was the last time you did your brakes?

Any fluid leaks evident under your car? If so, where?

Without any more information, I'm only guessing to say you might have an occasional brake pad dragging. If that'* the case, it wouldn't hurt to look them over and adjust or replace as necessary.

Good chance it'* only the brakes. Especially living in the stop and go captial....I mean city.

Ask him to check wheel bearings as well.
