Thanks Bill, I will look again and see if I can find anything that does not look right with the parking brake. I did not know about the valve.I guess the way I let the car set for months at a time the valve could have gone bad or some other part of the brake system. I did not even put tags on the car for an 8 year period and have just now turned 60 thousand miles. I guess not using a car is very hard on things like valves and other mechanical things. Thank you for the information .
