Ok 2011 Traverse AWD, after starting the vehicle, allowing it to idle down, when placed into drive and the accelerator is pressed, the truck feels like all wheel drive is engaged like it's pulling the truck to a stop, I'll pull over and turn the truck off, then restart it, most times it drives normally after that, Most times, could anyone help me with this issue, and has it happened to anyone else, and they corrected the problem?

So you are trying to accelerate and the vehicle is trying to slow down too quickly, almost like the brakes are being applied?

It sounds to me like an issue with dragging brakes, but a simple restart wouldn't cure that.

It almost sounds like trans is making a funny sound, or transfer case, or differential, I don't really know to tell you the truth, I did replace the front brakes which were evenly worn on both tires, caliper pins not sized, caliper not sized, rotors in good condition, but when applying the brakes, it still makes that antilock brake feeling as if you're stopping In snow, if you know what I mean.

Did you change the brake fluid when you did the brakes? I wonder if there is air in the ABS, and it needs to be bled?

Another possibility is that a wheel sensor was left unplugged, or was damaged with the brake job. May want to take a look at those connections.
