Check the ebrake cable. It could be seized. I had the same thing happen on mine. Had to replace the cable, and it solved the problem.

You could be dragging the rear tire, if this is the case. your tearing the tire to hell. Get it checked out asap, you could be doin some damage.

Thanks for all of your reply's...mechanic called and said it was the "Brake Power Booster"..as you have all figured I know next to nothing about vehicles and thus must depend on him...Problem is that he says it may be week to 10 days before part even in...says its not even built yet??? I'll keep everyone updated that is if I ever get her back...been down approx 3 weeks already...
Anyway, thanks again...

He is having the brake booster repaired, he has to ship it to the shop, shop works and test it and sends it back to your monkey; he then has to install it, purge the lines and bla bla bla.
It will all depend on how much work the brake shop but IMHO 10 days is too much.
