Having problems with your Toyota Camry ?
1990 camery all trac wagon
twice the front brake have not released after moderate braking, the car proformed like it was being starved to fuel but when we pulling of the road there is the smell of brakes and BOTH front wheel rims where hot to the touch, but not the rear. The problem correct its self after a few minutes and NO anti brake light comes on
Anti lock brakes were not an option on the camry until 1991, so we can rule out that as a problem. Inspect the return spring on the brake pedal, make sure the pedal is returning all the way when it is released. I think we can rule out the calipers since both sides are not releasing, and the odds are that if it were a caliper, only one side would be acting up. If the brake pedal is returning properly, the next place to look is the power brake booster. This is the most likely part to cause the problem. The booster is vacuum operated, and it could have internal problems causing the booster to hold the brakes until the vacuum slowly bleeds off or releases. The plunger in the master cylinder could also be sticking. If the master cylinder is original equipment and has never been service, it could have corrosion or debris inside causing the plunger to stick.
You have a sticky brake caliper. Purchase rebuilts calipers and install them. I would replace both of them up front for better constant braking. It would be best to have a qualified brake specialist do this for the whole system would have to be blead as well with fresh brake fluid. Old brake fliud can have foriegn matter causing the old caliper pistons freezing the calipers on you
