Question about 1992 Honda Accord
After driveing for like 15 min the car starts to smoke from the front passanger tire i have brand new brakes rotors and calipars it smells like its metal on metal burning how can i fix this
I would check it myself no matter who did the work. Jack up the car so that wheeel is off the ground. (Block atleast one back tire so the car cant roll off the jack) Make sure the car is in neutral... then see how freely the wheel spins. It should spin easily. check the break lines, fluid. I would even have someone sit in the car and press the break so you can visually see the it working. You may need to pull the wheel off and just spin the rotor. (most likely) My other thought whe I read your problem was that the wheel bearing could need to be replaced as well. They can definatery smoke when the get dry, but if you had no problem with it before doing the breaks then I would not think it should have one now. Focus on the calliper and pads first. post you results. I will check back. Tim

The brake caliper is rubbing the rotor. If you had the brake work done at a shop, take it back and have them fix it. If you did the work, check it again. Check for kinked hose, or improperly assembled parts. Also check for foreign material, such as a small rock stuck in the caliper.
