2001 gmc sierra 1500. The front brakes drag. I have replaced pads, calipers and hoses. Resevoir is full and gasket on cap is new. Can the brakes be adjusted?


No, there is no adjustment aside from being certain calipers are not binding. Be sure the M/C is fully releasing.

Make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid, then check to make sure rear drum brakes are adjusted properly. With rear wheels off the ground, truck in neuatral, wheels chocked, by hand spin wheel it should have a firm drag to it. If not they need to be adjusted.

One brake rotor gets very hot after 30 miles


on the wheel that is hot, jack it up and see it the wheel spins free or drags? if it drags, then loosen bleeder on the caliper, it if now spins free, you want to replace that caliper hose, if it is still dragging, then the caliper piston is stuck and you will need to replace it.
