I recently had new brakes installed on my 2004 Toyota Tacoma. No problems for a couple weeks. But now, frequently the brakes seem to stick, and after driving you can smell burning from the front brake...

This is probably not a master cylinder problem, but a mechanical issue with the front brake calipers. I would return to the shop that did the brakes and have it inspected. Possibly the pads were not installed correctly or the slide pins were not repaired/rebuilt during the brake change.

Change disc front breaks 2001 seville

jack up the car and remove the tire. you will see a caliper that is the thing that looks like it is hugging the disc. there are 2 bolts on the back side of the caliper. one on top one on bottom. loosen them and then they slide back out of the way. the caliper will then slide off. remove the old brake pads. use a 4 inch C clamp with the threaded end inserted to the cup part of the caliper and the stationary part on the opposite side and tighten the clamp down slowly. this will open the caliper back up so it will fit over the new brake pads. after you have the new pads in place slide the caliper over the brakes and disc realign the bolts that hold the caliper in place, tighten, replace tire and repeat on the other side. once complete make sure you pump the brakes a few times be fore you move the car so the caliper can close in on the new brakes otherwise you won't have any brakes for the first few pumps of the pedal

Front passenger brake locked up roter got hot -after it cooled off-seems to be ok for now-do hose clamps have anythingto do with resricting the fluid to the brakes

if the brake flex hose(rubber)is clamped closed then yes they will stop or slow the flow to the calipers.they will also restrict the fluid when you release the pedal causing the caliper to lock.not sure what you mean by hose clamps.there is a clamp that fastens the hose to a metal bracket on the body (frame)of the could be a caliper that seized up and should be replaced even if its working now.

I just changed the front disc brakes on my 2006 toyota tacoma and brake fluid is leaking from the brakes?? Why

If you replaced your brakes correctly you should not have any brake fluid. If you have seperated the caliper you may need to get the caliper repaired.

How do I change the front brakes

Jack the car up and take a tire off. You will see the brake caliper fitted over the rotor. You need to take the caliper off by using a 10mm socket, I believe. There are 2 bolts on the back side of the caliper that go through a rubber boot, one on top and one on bottom. Take those bolts out. Then the caliper should come right off. Don't let the caliper hang by the brake line. The brake pads are the flat 'C' shaped things that are on both sides of the rotor. Replace the pads. Then you will need a 5inch clamp to push the piston back in on the caliper. Position the clamp through C shaped opening on the front and the top of the clamp on the back side of the caliper. Be careful not to crimp the brake line. Tighten the clamp until the pistons are flush in the caliper and stop. Do not force the pistons in any further. Next, fit the caliper back over the rotor with the new pads on it and reinstall the 2 bolts you took out to start. Put the tire back on and tighten lugnuts accordingly. You will need to pump your brakes a couple times to get the pistons back out to the rotor and they may, at first, go right to the floor. Just pump them a couple times and they will get hard again. Good luck.

How do you change emergency rear disc breaks on 2001 olds aurora

Fairly similar to regular disc brakes except that you need to turn the caliper to get it to wind back in. DON'T COMPRESS IT WITH A CLAMP AS ON THE FRONTS! This will damage the caliper.

Brakes wear uneven

this could be the result of sticking/hanging caliper(s) which hold pressure and reel the lining off pads in a quick fashion.check calipers

Replacing brake pads in 2001 passat tdi

You'll need a few special tools. You will need some common metric wrenches and sockets, 10-19mm will be more than enough, and you'll need an 8mm Allen bit as well, to remove the caliper mounting bolts (these anchor the caliper to the caliper carrier). If you're doing rear brakes, you'll also need the proper tools to screw the calipers back in. If you're doing front brakes, you can use a C-clamp to compress the pistons back in. Other than that, and maybe a big beefy screwdriver to separate the caliper from the carrier, there's nothing to it.
