Question about 2001 Dodge Neon

Rear tire seizing

One of the rear tires seizes up and does not move. Initially I thought there may be a piece of glass in the brakes (car next to mine was broken into). A friend told me to go back/forth slam the brakes, the car worked fine. Now today, I am experiencing the same problem. The rear tire just won't move. Can anyone help me?

Check rear bearing and be sure there is enough axle grease. A seized bearing will cause the problem you describe.

I want to move my 2000 mercury cougar but the rear disc brakes are seized and so are the lug nuts what do i do

Soak the lugs with WD 40 and then wait a day, soak them again and use an impact air wrench to remove them, then do the same to the frozen disc parts.

Seized rear tire

On these JR bodies, and the earlier JA bodies, I have found that the rubber flexible brake hose to the wheels can collapse internally. This will cause the wheel to drag, and the brakes to smoke. If cracking-open the bleeder screw on that wheel frees it up, then you have found the solution. I have also seen the clamp on this hose rust, and actually "pinch-off" the brake line.

Tire locked up and brake fluid leaking

It's more than likely one of two things.Either the brake caliper pistons seized and didn't let the brakes release, or you have a wheel bearing seizing up. just check it out ! good-day !

The rear right tire is stuck and will not move.

Jack up the car and remove the right rear wheel. Check to see if the brake is frozen on (drum brake - you should be able to pull off the drum; disk brake, you should be able to slide a piece of stiff paper between the caliper and rotor). If the brake is locked on, first see if the parking brake cable is jammed in its housing at the wheel.

If it is not the brake, your wheel bearing may be seized up. You'll have to pull it apart and replace it, and you may also have to replace the axle (if the axle is bent, galled, cracked or discolored, it's a risk for breakage, which is at least as dangerous as a tire blowout).

Smoking from my drivers rear tire and alot of grinding??? what could be my problem

Sounds like a brake problem and could have a wheel cylinder leaking onto the hot brakes or a axle seal leaking onto the brakes. Look on the inside of the tire and see if there is any wet fluid on the tire .
