Question about 1997 Toyota 4Runner
I checked brakes seems o.k. leaking actuator but thats not it and seems ok when jacked up. any suggestions
If no oil on the driver side, you have a locked up parking brake pivot. Follow the park brake cable to the inside plate of the rear wheels. on the outside, where the cable connects, look to see the position of the visible mechanism connected to the cable. It probably will not match the side that is not locked up. This is a very common problem; you need to replace the park brake pivot. Additionally, you are going to need to remove the other side axle shaft and get the leaking oil seal replaced. Replace the brake shoes if they have oil on them.

I had a problem with my 1999 4runner rear passenger side wheel locking up after braking in cold/wet weather. Placing it in reverse or giving it some gas would "pop" the wheel free. My mechanic solved the problem by "turning" the drum. A search of other sites showed people solved the problem the same way; but some spent alot of time replacing pads, cylinders, etc. to no avail. Hope this helps someone else. -Roy Reynolds
