Hello All,
I have an 1984 300 td mercedes that I've owned for about two years now. For the most part I put on 20 miles a month on the car, using it just for errands. Lately I have had to travel 35 miles one day a week and last night I noticed that the car was a little sluggish the last few blocks home. I checked the rear and noticed that it was hot under the tires. I was going a good 80 miles per hour the whole time on that trip. Does anyone know what could be the problem here? Thanks for your help. David.

Dragging parking brake maybe? Did the problem clear up when it cooled down?

Yes, It did, and that suggestion was a possibility. I will know for sure in a couple of days when I drive it the same distance that I had when it first occured. Thanks.
