Toyota Tercel '94 seized rear brakes

My Toyota Tercel's rear brakes are locked, I assume it is the calipers since when i put my tercel in 1st gear or reverse, the rear wheels screech meaning those wheels can't move. I am told they are seized but I really need help on how to fix this.

Why did my 94 tercel engine stop on highway at 150000, apperantly the engine seized up.

If the engine seized the issue is most likely beyond the scope of the DIYer and shoult be taken to a shop for diagnosis. You will most likely need to rebuild the engine, or buy a rebuilt/new engine.

Brakes on toyota tercel wear unevenly changed rotor and pads wheel beaings are new what elese coukd it be

It could be a seized caliper. The seized one will be the one where the pads have the most lining left on them because they are not engaging when you push the pedal. Hope this helps.
