When one wheel is hot compared to the others, it is a bind in the caliper due to a failed piston seal or collapsed hose. The brakes remain applied to that wheel because of this.

You need to remove the effected wheel and you will most likely find a blued rotor and ashed pads. To eliminate the cause, loose the bleed screw and try to push in the piston of the caliper. If it doesn't move, replace it. Reman calipers operate good on these cars and are low cost.
