Question about Toyota Corolla
The brake line,the brake caliper needs to be checked. The brake caliper is getting blocked or its worn out so its getting depressed but its not getting released and this this is not completing the full brake procedure and this is causing the burn.Check and replace the caliper.Also check the wheel bearing if they are getting rubbed to any inner part and causing spark and due to that the wheel is smoking. Remove the caliper from the rotor and remove any dirt build up within or around the boot. You can then depress the piston back, either can buy the tool at local auto store, or do it yourself(Make sure that you press it back in evenly, not cocked to one side) You can do this by pressing on the brake pad, as it will slowly move back in. Brake pad should sit flush against the caliper wall. Place caliper back onto rotor and bolt down. Check fluids, bleed all brakes. Pump brake pedal till hard(not started) before you drive it. sounds like the piston in the caliper is not retracting as it should. This happens when dirt behind the piston causes the piston to jamb when new pads are installed and the piston is repostioned in the caliper. This causes the brake to drag and heat up do to constant pressing against the rotor. Get this fixed before it locks up.
