Question about Pontiac Cars & Trucks
I smell a burning smell under the hood of my 1997 grand prix. I don't know what it is but it only happens when I drive the car over 50 mph. my car also shakes when I hit the brakes. it refuses to stop the right way. I replaced the back roders recently.
I suspect these problems are unrelated.
Braking shake is usually caused by warped rotors or drums. A brake shop can machine or replace these.
A burning smell is most commonly caused when a drip from an oil leak hits the hot exhaust system. It does not need much to smell terrible. You will see brown or black stains on the exhaust somewhere.

Certainly sounds like a partially, or seized caliper hanging up, which has warped rotor. What exactly did they replace at brake job, do you know? Either way they need to be rechecked.

I have a 2004 with the same problem. It is actually a defect on dodges behave. The steering box flexes on the frame when you hit a bump. Bd diesel puts out a steering box brace and a new track bar with the right geometry to fix it. I had replaced everything under my front end before i saw the article in off road adventures magazine. I contacted dodge and asked why this was not a safety recall. They said they no nothing about it and refused to help me. I called the National Highway Transportation Safety Board and filed a complaint. I suggest you do the same and anyone else who reads this. If you need to contact me email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. maybe we can get enough people to complain before someone dies from this.

Inside the glove box on the passenger side you will see an opening. Use a light and you will see that it says "pull here", remove the plastic and the fuses are right behind it.
