Under normal use, rotors get hot, espcially in stop-and-go traffic.  Is the rotor hotter than others?  Don't touch them!  If the rotor is hotter than the others, then the pads are dragging.  If you did the work, re-check that caliper.  If not, take it back where you had the work done.

When i bought the truck the dealer had mentioned that they had bled the brakes as part of their inspection. i thought this was funny bought never pursued it. about a 1000 miles later the brakes are...


They could put a wrong braking fluid in. For example, if your car needs DOT-4 (which has higher boiling point) and you put in DOT-3 this issue may happen. Or putting DOT-3 or DOT-4 in the brake system which requires DOT-5 can destroy all rubber parts. You need to replace the braking fluid asap and bleed the system again.

About the only thing left is to replace the caliper. I've seen a few times, but not common. Piston gets bound on corrosion in caliper and doesn't retract completely.

My brakes are grinding and my brake lights are on...What is the problem?


You needed to pay attention when the wheels started squealing several months ago. Pads are down to the rivets and grinding into the rotors.... time for a complete brake job... and a pricey one at that.

1990 Honda accord brake problems


Short of jacking up the wheel and putting a new car underneath, you've just about covered all the possibilities. But I wonder, perhaps in your attempts to solve this, if you have inadvertantly introduced another fault? As you know, the brake master cylinder on a disc braked vehicle has no static valve. If there were to be a static valve in the master cylinder, the brakes would lock on after a few pumps. But this would affect both front wheels. There could also be a collapsed section in one of the flexible hoses which would let fluid through for bleeding but not allow the fluid to return. this would hold the brake on too. When you had the cliper off, did the rotor trun freely?

One brake rotor gets very hot after 30 miles


on the wheel that is hot, jack it up and see it the wheel spins free or drags? if it drags, then loosen bleeder on the caliper, it if now spins free, you want to replace that caliper hose, if it is still dragging, then the caliper piston is stuck and you will need to replace it.

Pulsating breaks


Who else drives this car? Going fast and quick stopping, riding the brake will get the rotors very hot. When they are very hot and you stop and sit with your foot heavy on the brake this will squeeze the rotor at one spot, as hot metal under pressure will bend and distort. This will result in the problem you are having.
