If Disc brakes jack up wheels , make sure the cable is not binding or frozen , pull hand leaver on three clicks, adjust cable till brakes just start to bind, release hand brake and check the wheels are free to turn. Drum brake check cables are free, back off cable till slack, check lining to drum adjusters are free and adjust if need be, pull hand brake on three clicks, adjust cable so brakes just start to bind release hand brake and make sure the wheels are free to turn ,
The problem is likely the transfer case has locked up, the question is do you need it to continue to be an AWD vehicle? If not a simple solution is to remove the driveshaft from the transfer case to the front differential case. Takes maybe 15-20 minutes and there are no leakage issues by doing so. The vehicle will now be a rear-wheel only drive one. I recently did this to our own 2003 model and as the car stays in the south, there is no need for the AWD. The car performs as expected and that binding problem is gone.
Suspects will include air supply, compression, and exhaust.
After ruling out the obvious basics (fresh air filter, unobstructed air intake) pull the wire clip to the auto-choke and idle for a few seconds before dropping it in gear to check for a change in power.
*Have you pulled the rear wheels to check for a binding E-brake or broken springs in the drums? What feels like a left-front drag could also be a rear dragging...
The binding of the brakes is causing the pads to overheat, which is causing the smoke. You need pull the wheel and check things out. Your caliper must be bad (not releasing). You need to replace the caliper, brake pads, and have the rotor cut (a full service parts store or shop cuts the rotor perfectly smooth on both sides), or replaced (it may be cheaper to just buy a new rotor). You should also always change the pads (and check everything else) on the opposite side. So, if u do the brakes on the driver side front, always do the front pass. side at the same time, likewise if u do rear brakes. Whenever you do brakes u should also flush out the brake lines (by bleeding the brakes) until the brake fluid flows absolutely clear. Old brake fluid is the #1 reason for caliper failure. I've seen many times people replace brake components w/out changing the brake fluid, only to have the brakes wear out very quickly, or not function properly. good luck! hope this helps> please rate this!couontrycurt0
