Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
The driver's side wheel turns freely and the front wheels work just fine. It has been in the 20s temperture wise for the last 3 days and I think that something might be frozen? Any guesses as to what, and how to get it unfrozen so I can go to Christmas?
Sounds like you left the handbrake on in very low temperatures and the moisture has frozen the shoes to the brake drum .....can you get vehicle into a garage to warm up?? if not use a can of de,icer and spray the rear of the wheel not the front and hopefully some will enter the drum and release it.Do you have a blowtorch for plumbing ,if so gently try warming the drum up slowly as this can cause the drum to crack if not done right.Have you tried going in reverse ???this often frees a frozen brake especially in conjuction with a spray of de.icer
