Question about 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab
I have a Ford F250 with a 7.3L diesel. When I start the engine the front brakes lock up. When I shut the engine off and remove the vacume line and check valve the wheel will then turn free. I just purchased the truck and there are 2 new calipers on the front. Whats up with this? How do I fix it?
Does the red break light come on the dash like when the park break is applied?
If so the check your proportioning valve if the truck has an abs system then the valve will be called a rabs valve.( located on the frame rail under the driver side seat) Check the break lines on the front calipers to see if they are damaged they may have been pinched so bad that they will not release. Also check to see If the master cylinder was changed , if the break lines were connected to the master cylinder incorrectly or the wrong master cylinder was installed the breaks will apply themselves…please rate this if it helped thx…
