Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
Replaced master cylinder and now the front brakes are locking up after you drive the car a few miles....are there any reasons for this?
I have a couple ideas for you. first make sure you bled out all 4 wheels making sure to get the air out. also check your abs module and see if it has a bleeder screw on it and bleed it. The second thing is after you drive it, does it seem like the brakes don't release after braking? is it ok when it's rolling? you may have a collapsed brake hose from your body to the calipers, allowing pressure through, but not back. This also makes sense after a few miles, when your brakes are just getting warmed up. after it starts locking up, jack it up and see if the wheel will spin. then see if the caliper piston will go back in. if it doesn't want to go in as easily as it should, or not at all, open the bleeder and see if it goes back. if it does, there's your problem, the hoses.
