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.

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.
