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.

Check for black smoke out of the tail-pipe when the engine is revved. Black smoke means unburned fuel. The most likely culprit is a plugged air filter/air intake. A plugged exhaust, especially the catalytic convertor will kill your fuel economy and power. It may also be in need of a good tune-up (spark plugs, filters, ignition wires, distributor cap/rotor). Also check tire pressures and make sure that you don't have any seized brakes.

Having this happen on both front brakes makes me think you have a bad master cylinder. What work have you done to it prior to this problem?

Pedal almost goes to floor, see steam or smoke from front wheels

Definitely sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. It shouldn't be driven anymore until the problem is repaired. The red brake light comes on when the fluid is low. If your in a rusty climate one of the brake lines has probably rusted out. When it dries up try following the lines from the master to each wheel. However since you said you saw smoke when braking i'd bet the leak is near a wheel and fluid hit the rotor or caliper which caused the smoke. In either case, sounds like something has to be replaced / repaired. Good luck.

Smoke near the passanger front wheel

pull off the tire and remove the rotor. clean the bearings with carb cleaner and look to see if they have signs of heat stress(dark blue/purple disscolorations) if so replace both inner and outer bearings. also look for the same discoloration on the rotor. If it has the color, your brake caliper is hanging up. It also may of been something as simple as blown grass od weeds caught in the rotor and burned off when it got hot, thus the reason you havent see it since.
