    I have a 1988. The brakes are very randomly binding up. One day they are fine and the next day I will be driving and I feel my truck start to slow down. My brake pedal will barely push in. When I bleed one of the brakes they go back to normal. I have changed the two front callipers and bleed the brake lines. I am beginning to think it has something to do with the rear brakes.
    thanks Derik

I would recommend that you jack up the front end, and, with the hubs unlocked, turn the front wheels by hand. If either is stiff/hard to turn, you probably have the beginnings of a caliper issue, it may be sticking, rusted, or some issue like that. If one caliper IS stuck, I would def suggest replacing both at the same time, if one is bad, the other cannot be far behind.

    If you had a MC issue, the pedal would be real spongy-soft, and go to the floor. No hydraulic pressure. The issue that you have is the MC IS developing pressure, and it has nothing to "move" (ie the caliper pistons/slides/pads), whatever is stuck; hencely the hard pedal condition. The fluid is not pushing what it is supposed to move. Methinks calipers.

Engaged 4wd and when slowing down to park heard a howling sound and acted like the brakes were on. Shut off engine and was able to reset and shift back into 2wd. Possible problem?

where you attempting to turn at all or where you going in a straight line.

A four wheel drive system has no way to "slip" the front and rear wheels as you turn. If you try to turn on dry or wet pavement in four wheel drive the system will bind up causing the exact symptom you described.

It is very hard on the 4x4 system to do this. I personally activate the 4x4 about once a month throughout the "summer" months while driving straight down a city road and only for a a couple of blocks just to make sure everything gets a chance to move and whenever I need it going off road (sand, dirt, mud).

1986 toyota 4x4 pickup brakes go to the floor

Check your brake lines/connections for leakage and clogging. Any leaks/clogs? Fix the problem spots. Then bleed the system. This is best/easiest done with two people. Brake bleeding steps can be found in pretty much ANY auto repair manual for a vehicle with conventional hydraulic brakes.

92 Chevy pickup front tier heats up and shakes the vehical after driving for a few minutes

I'm going to guess that you are complaining about a brake caliper failing to release the rotor when you take your foot off the brake pedal. I had this problem with my 1989 Chev Cheyenne 1/2 Ton Pickup. The brake would lock down and the wheel would become quite warm. I replaced the caliper unit, but that didn't solve the problem. The problem turned out to be a bad flexible brake hose at that wheel. Incredibly, these hoses wear out and are susceptible to collapsing internally causing a restriction in the fluid flow. The hose looked fine from the outside. Once a put a new one on, problem solved! This might be your problem, too.

Other causes could be a malfunctioning proportioning valve, a malfunctioning power brake booster unit, a binding brake pedal, binding brake pads or a sticking piston in the caliper.

Front brakes lock up

your brake calipers are stuck! replace the brake calpiers and won't hurt to replace the hoses at the same time.

the color of the plastic plug does not matter... You will have two injector plugs with white/red and yellow wires - those two go to cyl#'s 1 and 3.
the other two plugs will have white and blur wires.. those two plugs go to injectors # 2 and 4.
