Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4x4 4.0 L engine.

Asked by Oct 21, 2015 at 08:50 PM about the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just noticed yesterday, when I was driving the car, running an errand, I started to get a funny smell, like brakes burning, or like the emergency brakes were stuck.  The engine runs fine, but the Jeep was being restrained it seemed...the jeeps speedometer read 55 mph but I was actually going around 40-45 mph,,,guestimate.  No trouble code...so I am confuse as to what was happening...the transmission seemed to shift just fine.

Breaks are hanging up somewhere, jack up each wheel and try spinning them, should rotate somewhat freely, finding the one is locked up means looking for several causes of why.
