99 Tahoe almost on fire?
On my way back to the cabin this morning I smelt an ungodly stench comin from front.
Arrived at cabin, and smoke started rollin from the passenger wheel well so I grabbed the hose and started soakin her down.
it was the front passenger wheel. Almost like a stuck brake or ?. I just put new hubs on both sides 1 year ago/brakes 4 months ago, and being retired I don't drive her alot.
I was gonna pull the wheel off, but what am I looking for?:sign0011:

Check the hubs, calipers, bearings, etc. Anything that rotates. My vote is on the caliper. It might have locked up.2010 Equinox LT

Pull the wheel and see if the hub/brake turns freely. If not remove the caliper and see if the hub turns freely then, if it does then its the caliper, if not then most likely a hub.:cool:
