1992 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 141000 miles
Noticed a burnt brake smell, brake light came on (parking brake pedal was not depressed), and mushy brakes while driving. The brake fluid level is good. When looking at the front passenger wheel, I noticed the valve stem cap for the tire was melted onto the stem. I had just filled that tire with air last night, and the valve stem cap was fine. I'm thinking the parking brake may not have fully released from the last time it was depressed. If that is the case, what is involved in repairing?
