My fuel pump failed on the freeway and I called the towing truck.... the guy towed my car with the PARKING BRAKE engarged now i hear sound at the rear wheel when I stop. I just want to know if this happened.... what kind of damage will it do to my car also which parts do I need to replace to fix the problem.... ^.^

He probably smoked the rear brakes. The pads (shoes) are probably cooked, and the rotors (drums) have been heated beyond what they were designed for. Now the towing company should pay for a new set of rotors (drums), pads (shoes), and for a brake fluid flush, if not a new caliper (wheel cylinder) if they are smoked... Items in () are if you have rear drums instead of discs.

Just plain bone-headed! :rolleyes:
