My mom and I were transporting the Jimmy from our old house to the new house which is around 5 km away. After a few minutes of driving my mom notices a burning smell. I ignore it for a while thinking its the exhuast or something. After a while my mom says it smells worst...so we pull over and I look in the engine bay thinking the q-jet i just rebuilt pooped out. nope, everything fine...keep looking and notice my front axle, on the right side is spewing smoke from the wheel. I peek my head around and the axle is smoking. I don't know much about axles so i am stumped on what is wrong. Its at the end, close to where the rim is. We limped it home (only choice...it doesn't have insurance) and when we got home it was really smoking. We get the hose with water to spray it so nothing starts on fire. Once I hit the spot that was smoking, a bunch of steam came up. Simular to when you put a hot piece of welded metal into water... So whatever it is was really hot. Anyone know why this would be? Like I said I know hardly anything about axles or the pieces on it. so I am stumped. Where it was smoking is around where the brake pieces are. Anyone know?
