Default 96 Sable Front Brakes Partially Locked??

Vehicle is 1996 Sable GS
Approximate 119,000 Miles

Rotors & Pads most recently replaced at 113,500 Miles November 2010

The calipers were most recently replaced at 96,600 Miles December 2008.

Back in August it felt like the car was rolling too slowly at coasting very low speeds. A short time later on the highway very strong odor of brakes, almost like a truck someplace in front had just slammed on its brakes.

Even now when the car is started from park, put it in gear and it strains to move at all.

Anybody run across this before?
With any car whether Mercury or not?

I took it to a local place (not ford dealership) and the mechanic couldn't find the problem at a quick glance. It was barley doing it at all that time when I drove it over to his place (about 10 miles), he took a couple measurements and the Front Left Brake Caliper Measured 195F, Front Right Brake Caliper Measured 160F.

The car has been sitting pretty much since then occasionally started and run, but not driven.

Ran the car for about half hour idling in park earlier this evening.
Put it in drive and it doesn't move at all now....

Any advice, input, suggestions, direction appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
