1998 Toyota Avalon XLS 6 Cyl 3.0L
Why is my front drivers side tire locking up when i stop?
I have a 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS. It has 190,000 miles on it and I drive over 100 miles back and forth to work everyday. I'm just trying to keep this car going until February when I can get a new one. About a month ago, when I braked, my front driver side tire would catch and jerk the whole car to a stop before I was fully stopped, then it would finish turning over and jerk the car again. It was only doing it occasionally. Now it's doing it about 5 or 6 times a day. I have no idea what is causing this. Does anyone know what it might be and how much it might cost to fix?
Bad driver's side brake caliber. See this Fig. Front caliper-Camry and Avalon
