Chanses are its the calipers that are bad, and the break hoses going from the hard line to the caliper are too, (one or the other) i've had both problems on my wifes durango, changed both calipers twice and last time replaced both break hoses, i have also done the same thing to a friends sebring with the same problem, seams to have cured the breaking problems on both. Best thing to do is replace both calipers and both break hoses, i think it will solve your break issue.

190,000.miles Smoking from front right. Small oil leak on garage floor. Groaning. Not over heating.


Groaning or Grinding? I would check the bearing. If that is heating to the point of smoking you need to stop driving right away or you will start your car on fire.

My steering wheel shakes when braking over 40 mph


most likely a warped rotor, check front end components (tie rod ends, ball joints). if a caliper is sticking the rotor will get very hot, get black, or discolor, and bend (warp). drive around for10 min. and jab the brakes hard several times during the drive. stop and feel the temp (don't touch) of each wheel with your hand. they should be equally warm. hot or smoking is not a good caliper.

What would cause the front brakes to get so hot it pops the tire.


possibly:
-siezed caliper
-collapsed brake hose, restricting fluid flow causing opposite brake to work harder building excess heat

Man truck front brakes siezed on


Hi I have a 2001 Man le 160c 7.5tonne recovery truck which has a similar problem as the truck is rarely used & every time I go to move it the front brakes seem to stick on but most times they free them selves when rocking the truck backwards & forwards but will need inspected before I drive it but unsure with commercial vehicles if they will just need a good clean with a power drill & wire brush & callipers pistons some oil ?? unsure if the callipers pistons screw in or just push in ,I have drove it for 2 miles & I could feel the front brakes were still hanging on , please advise

Breaks


Is the anti-lock brake light on (if you have ABS)? If so, that needs diagnosing by a good shop.
If you don't have it, or if the light is not on, you need to pull the wheel off and investigate. Is this the front brakes or the rear? If it's the rear, your emergency brake might be too tight, and needs adjustment. If it's the front brakes, you may have a caliper siezed up, and not retracting-the caliper is what pushes the brake pads against the rotor for braking. Spin or turn the wheel around (with car in neutral). The brake pads should be just enough away from the rotor to allow free turning. If it's tight you probably need the caliper replaced or repaired.
Thanks for using FixYa, and good luck.

Smoke coming from right front wheel area after 10


Check the brakes. You may have a caliper dragging due to lack of preventative maintenance. If you never flushed the brake fluid every couple years,the caliper piston could be rusted and sticking.

Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

Heat coming from1997 geo tracker & front tires


sounds like you have a brake claiper piston not return causing the brake pads to drag, jack up both wheels and spin to see if you can feel or hear drag, give the wheel a hard spin and see if it stops right away or seems to spin freely, could be the drag of the pads on the rotor, or wheel bearings need repack or even as much as brake residual fluid pressure on calipers cuased by improper brake mc pushrod adjustment, if you have had any recent brake work like a MC replacement it could be that it was not properly adjusted as far as pedal free play... check those.. please let me know if this helps, rate my help...thanks

check your fluids and bleed the brake system , if that is all the issues your having . if low on fluid and keeps draining out then you have whats known as a caliper seal broken and that means $30-50 bucks for a new one/rebuilt , i know i drove mine like that for a bit and had to replace the driver side.
