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.

Bleed the front brakes and the right brakes keeps locking up brakes bleed good but the caliber dose not release like it should and if the motor is runing it locks up tite i have replaced the...


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.

Replacing front brake brake calipers and bleeding them


jack up car and remove wheels, use a stick to depress brake pedal about an inch this will keep fluid from running out during replacement, loosen bleeder screws to relieve pressure, then ddisconnect brake hose at caliper, replace the calipers and reinstall hoses with new gaskets, remove brake hold down and bleed passenger side then drivers side.

The right front brake drags and gets hot


When it drags, loosen the bleeder, if it releases, the hose is bad, if it does not release, the caliper is bad.

When i push the brake it pulls to the right if there is even a little snow it slides to the right


You most likely have a right front caliper sticking,or the brake hose is stopped up,not allowing the pressure to release from the caliper.

2001 silverado 1500, just put on new pads rotors and 1 new caliper, the brakes are spungy, the wheel with the new caliper is sticking and the front passanger brake too, i cant figure out why.


Replace both front brake hoses.....they collapse on the inside and will not allow fluid to retract...caliper was probobly fine.....this happens a lot....good luck...Lee

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.

Right front wheel/disc brake? heat up


most likely a brake line causing problem. it is either the rubber hose or caliper sticking. the rubber hose will collapse and cause pressure to stay on the caliper
