SOURCE: Front brakes not releasing properly.

Sounds like the caliper needs replaced. Sometimes the pistons lock in the caliper and cause the brakes to drag. When the mechanic changed the brakes before, he pushed the pistons in all the way to accomodate the new brake pads. Now that they are wearing back down, it is getting to the warped spot in the caliper and starting to stick.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota pickup front brakes don't release

Well I don't think you'll need to buy parts,it sounds like there may be sludge built up between the master cylinder and the proportional valve to the front brakes.Pull the valve off(follow the line off the master cylinder and you'll find the valve)clean it and then flush/bleed the master cylinder before you reinstall,Then flush/bleed the rest of the system.There's a relly good chance that may be all you need to do,but you may need to pull the calipers and clean them also.Comment back if you need more help,Good Luck(To)Yotaguy

SOURCE: how do I replace brake pads on 2007 tucson. I

use a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the caliper bolts/slides. remove caliper. note how old pads came off, match the new pads with same location of old pads ( check for hardware or indicator location). press the caliper piston in . the correct way is to use a caliper press, apply a little pressure to piston, open bleeder screw, press piston all the way in, tighten bleeder. (or grab a 'c' clamp and slowly push the piston in. i would recommend having the rotors machined to for proper wear and to eliminate vibration. for this remove 2 17mm bolts holding caliper bracket on and rotor will slide off.

SOURCE: stuck calipers

Brake lines are not releasing fluid back to master cylinder. Open bleeder and see if wheel will turn. If it does replace brake line to caliper

Why is my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer brake pedal not releasing?


See if the return spring on the brake pedal is connected or may be stretched. This is a pretty good sized spring that is attached to the pedal arm and connects to the body up under the dash.

After replacing the front brake pads and rotors on my 2001 mustang the calipers are not releasing enough , you can hardly turn the front wheels by hand and the brakes are running hot . How do I get th


Calipers retract after the brakes are released by the slight wobble and rotation of the rotor. What is probably occurring on your vehicle is that the caliper pistons, having been extended due to the worn pads, may have developed rust ridges that prevent the piston from retracting completely. You may have to carefully extend the caliper piston(s) without dislodging them from the bore, then I would first use a brake cleaner on the piston surface. If that fails to work, very fine emery may work. Be sure to remove all residue to prevent seal damage. Do not use any unrecommended solvents as they can damage o-rings and seals

Brake rotors getting red hot


Simple:(unless you are racing autocross), the brake pads are not releasing. This can be caused by several posible causes:

Clogged or?fices inside the Master Brake Cylinder.
Malfunctioning brake booster
Sticking brake calipers.
Damaged brake hoses.

A complete brake inspection is necessary, but anyway, overheated disc brake rotors that got red-hot will most probably got twisted or damaged and will be in need of replacement.

In my Stratus (a 2002 turbocharged R/T Sedan) I installed Premium ATE Brand rotors which have an elliptical slot. These Premium discs are needed at my altitude of more tan 7350 ft above sea level because engine vacuum is barely adequate to stop the car, and by using those rorots together with ceramic brake pads from Centris Parts (Posi-Quiet Brand) I achieved much better braking power.

Mazda5 rear right brake gets hot, sometimes smells burning.


Try simple/free things first: put car on jack stands,turn wheels to see if you hear pads/shoes dragging after brake pedal on/off,pads should free-float after brake pedal release and if not releasing (by the way,was any brake fluid spilled accidentally on the pads??),more than likely bad caliper;sure the pads are correct ones (thickness) for your car rotors/calipers???. Hope this helps. Alberto

I have a 2008 Chrysler T & C minivan. We are on a road trip and the rear brake pads have hung up twice causing the rotors to get red hot. I have been able to free them up by tapping on them with a...


it might be that the calipers are dragging, but lets try something first, jack up the back of the van and put some kind of support under it ( safety first ) and wile turning the rear wheels by hand have some one apply the brakes the wheel should stop immediately and then wile keeping presser on the wheel in the direction you were turning them release the brake pedal the wheel should release instantly (also the wheel should spin free if not it could be as you suggested that the sliders are stuck) if the wheel does not release instantly open the bleeder on the caliper if the wheel still does not release then you need to replace the caliper. if the wheel does release with the bleeder open then it is either the rubber brake hose that is going from the body to the rear caliper or the master cylinder.....good luck and i hope you get to enjoy the rest of your trip

I have a 96 isuzu rodeo,3.2 and the brakes will lock up on their own, gradually then it takes about 15 minutes for them to release, any thoughts?


this could be caused by a few things, first you need to jack the truck up you will need all 4 wheels off the ground, put the transmission in neutral and have some one get in the truck and wile turning each wheel have the person in the truck push the brake pedal the wheel should stop instantly then have the person release the brake the brake should release instantly,( do this to each wheel ) if all brakes remain locked ( wont release instantly ) then replace the master cylinder if the both rear brakes wont release instantly replace the brake hose from the frame to the rear differential, if the both front brakes wont release replace master cylinder, if only one front brake wont release open the bleeder on that brake caliper if the wheel releases replace the caliper hose if the brake still wont release with the bleeder open replace the caliper, you should replace the caliper and brake hoses as a pair.

Changed the rear brake pads and now the brakes wont release.


When you replaced the pads did you make sure the calipers were working properly?, did you bleed the brake lines?, is emergency brake cable completely releaseing the rear brakes or is it hung up somewere?. Check these things first and if all is OK get it to mechanic.
