I have smoke coming from around my drivers side tire. I smell something I can't tell if its brakes or oil. Could it be a bad bearing or bad caliper or a rear end problem?
Look for leaks first. When does it smoke? Is the wheel too hot to tough? Hear any noises, like grinding or binding?
I don't see any leaks. It takes about ten minutes to get hot. I can't tell where the smoke is coming from though. It smells like brakes but not really. I jacked it up and feel as though the bearing is good.
did you leave your parking brake on?
no parking brake on drivers front, could be piston sticking,like tom asked is it getting hot,does it seem like you have to give it more gas starting out
it doesn't say front or rear Mark- it just says driver's side, so yeah, it could be a parking brake that is stuck on- we just had one in our service dept. last week.
sorry richard i was assuming front
