    Is it possible the booster is hanging up and holding pressure on the master cyl ?

  • andy piipponen Aug 01, 2013

    Its manual brakes, btw. You have to compress with c clamp then loosen from proportion valve

    Were they hanging up before the master cyl was replaced, and is it possible you have a power brake master ? Not much else to apply pressure. And you are saying you can't release using the bleeder screws ?

    The master cylinder is about the only thing that can make both sides stay applied.

    If the master cyl is for power the rod to the pedal could be the wrong length.

  • andy piipponen Aug 01, 2013

    it is the factory recomended m/c

The passenger front brake caliber is sticking on my 2014 ford truck


is it sticking at the sliders contact points, where the caliper moves on the bracket, or is the piston sticking. if its the slider contact points remove caliper and clean surfaces apply sill-glide to surfaces and re-assemble. if its piston sticking check to make sure the brake flex hose is good then replace caliper assembly and bleed system.

What can i use to keep my breaks from sticking? i put on new break pads and they are still sticking.please help me.


your brake caliper or calipers,may be sticking.when you drive it at night,for say 10 miles,then look at the fronf wheels,do you see a fire red glow behind the wheel on the brake caliper.? easy way to tell.jack the car up with the emergency brake on. pump the brakes with engine running,with the transmission in neutral? can you spin the tires by hand? if not,then you have a sticking brake caliper,which will burn the brakes up fast.eventually,the brake caliper will "lock" and then you will not be able to move the car in any gear.if you suspect bad brake caliper,replace both front brake rotors and calipers with new brake pads. easy way to eliminate the brake problems.if you replace the brake calipers and pads only.the rotors may still be warped due to all the heat that occured with the bad brake calipers. you will have a bad steering wheel vibration when braking otherwise. thank you,for choosing fixya.com!

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L front passenger brake sticks


First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

2001 silverado 1500, just put on new pads rotors and 1 new caliper, the brakes are spungy, the wheel with the new caliper is sticking and the front passanger brake too, i cant figure out why.


Replace both front brake hoses.....they collapse on the inside and will not allow fluid to retract...caliper was probobly fine.....this happens a lot....good luck...Lee

Either the brakes or the caliper keeps sticking to the rotors.


If its not the caliper causing the problem try replacing the rubber hose coming off of the caliper. Sometimes the inside of the hose will get messed up and let fluid go to the caliper but not return to the master cyl.

Brake sticking on new caliper


If install done correctly, proper lube etc, and still sticking, I'd change flex line to caliper.
