Take the top off your master brake cylinder to relieve pressure. You may have over-pressured things if you didn't take the cylinder cap off when you compressed the rotors. You said pads, so I assume they are rear disc brakes.

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.


This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

Replaced rear rotors and pads on 1999 4wd silverado, they now get burning hot , greased pins ok, whats wrong ??


make sure the pads move very freely inside the caliper bridge rust can build up and bind pads causing excess friction. never hurts to double check the parts purchased are the correct application.

I changed out the rotor on the drivers side rear and breake pads on all tires 2001 chevy 1500,when i tried to set the breaks the rotors got hot quickly the rear caliers on both locked up and wont release


Check the hose(s) from the calliper to the tubing.
Many times they will fail internally (no leak) and act as an accumulator - keeping pressur in the line.
If you can open the bleeder, and the calliper cylinders retract, chances are good the hose has failed.
It is always recommended to replace the hoses all at once.
