Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
Sometimes while driving the front passenger side brake engages and dosent release resulting in superheated metal and blue smoke. dosent seem to do it when its cooler unless I drive it for awhile.
Its possible that the caliper slides are binding,the caliper is warped,the calipers piston is jamming,Basicly from what youve just said with the over heating you really should replace caliper,rotor,pads and flush brake fluid.The heat your talking about destroys all the rubber seals in thecaliper destroys brake fluid and severely weakens the rotor.If you take the pads out you are likely to find cracking in the pads.Make sure before you fix it that you know what caused it.Is it abs as it maybe a potential cause.
