Recently I've been smelling a burning smell from the rear of the truck. It doesn't smell like oil, its like a clean burning smell, possibly the brake pads. I recently had the brakes checked and the pads were at 40% so they told me to come back after 10,000 miles. But they didn't do any other work. I did smell the burning before then, and I guess there wasn't anything obvious that they saw or else they would have told me.

Regardless, the transmission runs fine, no slipping and the engine runs fine, no rough running. The smell is always in the rear.
Another person who posted here said it was the piston causing it. Could that be it? What is a piston?

Can anyone help me?
