Question about Cars & Trucks
Both front brake engage gong down the road. They are fine for the first couple miles then they engage. it doesnt matter the speed im going. If I wait an hour and drive it again, its fine for the first couple miles and does it again. The peddle is hard to push but it stops really quick. Both front wheels are extremly hot and you can smell the brake lining burning. Would both calipers go out at the same time?! We pulled the ABS fuse and it still does it. Any suggestions?

your brake hoses have failed internally. replace your rubber brake hoses. this is a common issue on older vehicles

Had this problem on gm trucks. Replaced brake hose to caliper and fixed it. The inner core has failed and the outer core will fill and put pressure on the caliper.

I would suggest that you adjust your rear brakes. Most likely you have drum brakes in the rear. When the rear brakes are out of adjustment (caused by not using "e-brake" when you park the car. The "e-brake" when applied keeps the rear brakes adjusted with a self adjusting mechanism.) the front brakes have to do ALL of the work to stop the car. In this case going down a steep grade for a long time simply overheated the front brakes. When the front brake pads overheat they get "glazed" and don't want to work anymore. Most likely reason for brake pedal going to the floor is the brake fluid was boiling. Hope this helps. Good luck.
