I'm so glad I found this forum. As a memeber of VWVortex, I know how CLUTCH these forums can be, so I thank you in advance for your repsonses. I utilized the search feature and found a few threads on my topic, but none that quite the same. The carl is my girlfriend's. It is a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee laredo with the 5.2L V8. It has about 150,000 miles on her now. Yesterday she called extremely upset. She says she left work, and driving down the 101 she started to smell something burn, and she went to pull over and stop to see, the truck would not stop. Once it finally came to a stop, she said smoke was pouring out of the wheels, and it stunk when she came back to work. I figured seized caliper, floormat holding brake pedal down, or her resting her foot on the brake pedal. Well, the only thing it could be is the seized caliper. I topped off the fluid for her last night and drove it around for awhile, and couldn't get it to do it again. I don't feel safe with her driving, but I'm not 100% at what the problem is, becuase it won't seize for me. Any help is appreciated. BTW her dad replaced the front brake pads about 2 or 3 months ago, and this issue ahs only happened twice, both times after the new pads were installed.
