Brake pad wear uneven

Hi, it looks like you have to get your steering tracking checked and also the brake cylinder on the nearside sounds as if its seized or not working properly.

Possible Front Wheel Hub Bearing Assy
If so- do both sides
You can get them from Rock Auto online
any quality brand you want.
Will only tell if it is bad by removing the brake
caliper,pads & rotor & turning hub to feel the
rough bearing by hand
If you have front wheel drive with drive axles as

Brake pedal just started needing to be pumped to engage and smoke coming from behind the back drivers side tire

I have the same truck! You could have a leaking wheel cylinder. Look at the brake drum on the driver rear and see if its wet. also check your brake fluid level. If you are leaking you will be low.
Wheel cyl's are not super hard to do, just make sure you do everything and both sides. also do one side at a time so you can use the other side for reference when putting it all back together.

Brakes on 93 lincoln towncar seize up after driving 20 minutes.Had new front calipers,new brake line hoses and new

Do you know which one is holding on? I would if it has flexible hoses crimp off the rears with proper brake line crimps & drive but carfully as your brake function will be reduced. If it dosn't happen you know the problem lies in the rear if not you know its in the front. If in front uncrimp the rears & crimp 1 front drive & see what happens but with only 1 crimped the car will want to pull sideways under brakes if problem remains you know it is the other side, repeat with other side to make sure. This should let you know where the fault is if the fault remains its probably not any of the callipers or drums.

I hear a loud metal on metal noise when i drive over 15 mph from my front tire and sometimes feel vibration under drivers left foot

That sounds like your brake caliper has engaged on the front drivers side and not releasing which has eaten up your brake pads. Suggest you pull the hub and brake pad out and check whether the piston is retracking as it should.

1985 5.7 corvette backfires when cold not as much at operating temp also wont idle , checked timming it is set wires are not cross replaced the module in the distributer

did you set timing properly ? you have to unplug the timing wire connector by the distributor its a tan and black wire with a black plug in it then set the timing at 6 degrees in park for a manual trans 6 degrees in drive with emergency brake on the firing order is 18436572 the left of the square power connector on the distributor cap is no 1 going to the left clockwise follow the wires to each plug carefully and make sure they are not mixed up it happens . driver side front is plug # 1 passenger front is plug # 2 driver side second from front is plug # 3 passenger side second from front is plug # 4 and so on also check the distributor cap and rotor for any signs of corrosion p.s. the # 6 and 8 wires are the ones usually mixed up after you set the timing the computer has to go through a re-learn mode for a few minutes so idle the car for a few minutes then drive it at about 20-30 percent throttle and let the trans shift into high gear for automatics manual same thing but shift it yourself after 5-10 minutes it should be fine

Grumbling noise in front drivers side of car.Worst at 30-40 mph.

Sound more like the wheel/hub bearing. An axle will usually make a clicking noise when turning, and be quiet when going straight. It probably wont break by may but it may get louder. Get it checked asap.

Front brakes engaged while driving

the problem will be in the master cylinder compensating port blocked
disc brakes do not have return valves or residual line pressure like drum brakes
if at any time the heated brake fluid is not allowed to expand back into the reservoir it expands and pushes the disc brakes harder on
catch 22 situation
dragging pads generate heat , fluid expands and presses the pads on harder = more heat =more pressure
the rotors have to be running true ( no wobbles) wheel bearings have to be correctly adjusted or replaced and the calliper body has to move freely on the mounting pins to allow for self centering action
instead of the mechanic go to an accredited brake professional shop and have a proper diagnosis and quote done
