Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
This will likely be the left brake caliper piston is 'frozen' and cannot release once the brake peal is released after applying them. This causes overheating of the brake rotor, thus creating smoke, heat and smell. If you look at your rotor it is probably a blue color, which is not normal. However, in some cases the brake caliper that is frozen will not work and overloads the opposite side. The brake calipers must be checked for piston movement - by removing the caliper and trying to depress the piston back into its bore, if it will not depress the caliper must be replaced. The same holds true for the rear.

You are smelling burning antifreeze. likely a head gasket but only testing will determine that for sure...Do not drive it. get it to a shop or more damage is likely.
