Front rotor brakes on 1978 panel truck .they lock up temporarily ,need replacing or cleaning ?


if they are locking up this sounds more like a hydraulic problem like the calipers pistons are sticking/seizing and need replacing. also if the caliper slide surfaces are worn/dirty can cause calipers to stick as well as the hydraulic brake hoses sometimes separate internally which can also cause the brakes to stick. the bottom line is have the front brakes checked out for condition and operation.

Right Side Brakes keep holding and not releasing


Hi Tommy, I'm glad to help! There are only 5 things that can cause brakes to hold: (1) Calipers are sticking. NOTE: There are several reasons calipers stick, there are internally frozen meaning you need new calipers. Here's how to check them release the nut that holds the hose to the caliper when the fluid bleed out and the calipers do not release pressure from the brakes then they are internally frozen, replace them. (2) Hose's are calapsed internally. You check the hoses in the same way, release the bolt and if the calipers DO Release pressure from the brakes then you know it's the hoses. (3) The actual metal lines going to the back of the Vehicle could be damaged. Example: One time one of the rear brakes would not release pressure and I found where the line goes acroos the rear axle something had hit the line and smashed it flat and so it was holding brake pressure on the wheel. (4) Let's not forget how much dirt and grime builds up on the brakes themselves. Example: I found one time where the LANDS where the brake shoes slide were so dirty that the brake pad itself was stuck and holding the brake pressure on that wheel. (5) The Master Cylinder, not very often, but I have seen the ports in the master cylinder clog-up and will not bleed back to release brake pressure. This is a few thing for you to check out that will help you find the problem yourself and save you money. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Tommy.

Caliper piston is sticking. Try pushing it all the way back to the bottom of its travel and then pump the brake pedal slowly and lightly until the piston has reached a point of contact with the pads.

I've not had much success with this method. Usually, if a piston sticks, you're better off to just replace the caliper.

My front driver side brakes are sticking. the rotor is heating up and the brakes are being worn down. i replaced the brakes, rotor, and the caliper.


99% of the time that is caused either by the slides on the caliper being frozen with rust or the rubber hose between the body and caliper has an internal failure and is keeping the caliper applied. Less common is the piston in the caliper being rusted or an abs system that has gone bad.
Personally I'd bet on the hose.

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while when i stop smoke comes from them ive change master cylinder pads and discs but still have the problem...


Chanses are its the calipers that are bad, and the break hoses going from the hard line to the caliper are too, (one or the other) i've had both problems on my wifes durango, changed both calipers twice and last time replaced both break hoses, i have also done the same thing to a friends sebring with the same problem, seams to have cured the breaking problems on both. Best thing to do is replace both calipers and both break hoses, i think it will solve your break issue.

Either the brakes or the caliper keeps sticking to the rotors.


If its not the caliper causing the problem try replacing the rubber hose coming off of the caliper. Sometimes the inside of the hose will get messed up and let fluid go to the caliper but not return to the master cyl.

Front brakes stick on


either your calipers are sticking and need replacing. OR the hoses have failed internally. and need replacing.. very rare but possible the master cylinder is not allowing the fluid to return usually caused bu a booster failing and causing some down travel in the master cylinder. I'd start by raising the front end up. appling hard brake pressure. turn the tire.. then loosen the brake bleeder to check for pressure. if the bleeder sprays fluid and the brakes release forget the calipers. if they are still tight then replace the calipers. pump them up again if they released.. and break the line free at the master cylinder. if they don't release then replace the hoses..
