Installed New rotors, calibers and brake pads on the front and back brakes bled the air from the master cylinder and each brake per instructions in the. Haynes manual and the front brakes still lock up...


Sounds like your master cylinder is not working properly, so you may have to replace it as there does not seem to be the correct amount of brake pressure that gets to the rear brakes. Are your rear calipers or brakes seized, to they move freely. Is the parking brake cable seized and causing the rear brakes to not function properly. Lots of thing it could be.

1994 Chevy Cavalier front right brake is locking up every time you step on brake . I already changed that caliber and it is still doing it


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN A CALIBER LOCKS UP: IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE CALIBER BEING BAD. THE CAUSE IS THE RUBBER BRAKE LINE GOING TO THE CALIBER IS BAD INSIDE OF THE RUBBER HOSE. ONCE YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL YOU PUSH FLUID INTO THE CALIBER ONCE YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL THE FLUID DOES NOT ALL RETURN TO THE MASTER CYL. THE HOSE IS OLD AND THE RUBBER IS BUSTED INSIDE OF THE HOSE AND THE FLUID IS STAYING INSIDE OF HOSE AND HOLDING PRESSURE ON THE CALIBER. I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME AND NEEDLESS TO SAY IT COST ME AROUND $500.00 TO HAVE IT FIXED AFTER I REPLACED CALIBER, ROTOR AND BRAKES.

How to change 2001 crown victoria brake pads


Jack up car, remove the wheels, take out the two retaing bolts on the brake caliber, slide caliber up off brake disc, remove old brake pad, use a C-Clamp or big pair of Channel locks to compress the piston in to the brake caliber, Insert new brake pads onto caliber, slide brake caliber back over brake disc, reinstall the 2 retaining bolts. put tire back on. Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

I fixed the converter and got new calibers


Some of your narration seems to be backwards but the bottom line is you likelyhave one or both front brake hoses (rubber ones) between the chassis and the calipers and the body, that are internally collapsing and holding your front brakes in the applied position. There is no repair other than to replace the hoses.

Brake lock-up


I suspect that you have front disc and rear drum brakes.You did not say which of your brakes are locking up. I suggest that if your front brakes are locking {skid} that means your rear brakes are not engaging. If your rear brakes are locking {skid} then I suggest you have problems with park brake or brake fluid leaking onto the rear shoes.
More info would help me help you. I will check back soon.

Front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2


I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.
