Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 93 Chevy c1500 2wd with rear anti lock brakes when I got the truck the front brakes were sticking replaced the front hoses the calipers are in good shape the piston goes back easily with the bleeder open and they slide on the pins good metal lines aren't rusted or kinked but they wont release unless u crack the bleeder u can crack the line at the master cylinder and they release to so I'm guessing there is no blockage up to the master cylinder

SOURCE: 1996 PLYMOUTH VOYAGER SOFT BRAKE PEDAL AIR IN LINES

I am a hydraulic technician and I can tell you that air is a killer in the hydraulic system.

Start from the rear and work your way forward. I f you are using the two person method, make sure the second person keeps the master cylinder full. If the fluid level dropped anywhere in between pressing and releasing the brakes....you have a lot of air in the system.

Make sure you are tightening the bleed valve when the brake pedal is full pressed.

Remeber...start from the rear brakes first, then do the front.

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

2005 Chevy Equinox left front brake caliper locks up


Your vehicle should have rear drum brakes...They have to be adjusted manually for correct adjustment...People say they self adjust but it is not good enough....by adjusting the rear it will decrease the pressure on the front and deliver equal braking...This will help eliminate caliper pressure overload....I'm not saying that is your caliper problem but it is insult to injury and will save the life of front brakes.....Now your caliper problem..FYI..A rule of thumb is anytime you change a caliper you should always replace both calipers to have identical braking pressure".The same with brake hoses and rear wheel cylinders.....The caliper that froze in the first place got hot and boiled the brake fluid and quite possibly partially collapsed the caliper brake line/hose inside as Clint and Frank stated....I am going to guess that the first caliper froze under normal conditions however got hot enough to internally damage the caliper line/hose...Then you may think of the pressure regulator being bad in which case could be a problem......So this is what you do".Since we know the left front caliper line/hose has been exposed to heat it needs to be replaced anyway...also the fluid was boiled and it needs to be changed / bled...The new caliper that froze should be ok unless it was bad off the shelf which is rare but possible."..Change the line/hose,bleed the brake system and let the mechanic test drive before you pay and leave..The mechanic will know before driving if the new caliper that froze is bad or not by rotating the wheel...This is the cheapest way...And you will know if the pressure regulator is bad or not just by bleeding system........I hope this helps....."Brooks/Metalpoet....."....

I have a 1993 chevy cavalier, my front right brake is sticking. brakes keep grabbing. whats my problem


replace the front calipers ,check the flexable hoses as well as they can cause the brake to lock on when the pipe inside the flexible hose fails

What is causing left front caliper to continually fail. Is it related to anti lock brake system?


The hose could be collapsed internally holding residual pressure and keping the pads applied. Also make sure that the caliper is sliding free side to side.

!996 Chevy Astro AWD pulls to the left when braking , I have replaced Both front calipers, rotors, and pads bled the brake lines and still it will pull to the left MOST OF THE TIME! when i least expect...


Check front end steering linkages for any play, as well as rear brakes for sticking or grabbing as well. Not unusual for a rear brake grabbing, to cause front end to want to wander.

Left front caliper sticks on 93 villager after replacing caliper, rotor and brake hose


If the caliper is sticking it should have a warranty. Either installed incorrectly or it was bad out of the box. Remove and replace.

93 beretta front passenger brakes dragging caliber is locking up abs lights on not sure what else to do already changed caliber and pads still doing the same thing


If the same caliper is sticking,the replace the brake hose,it has colasped on the inside.Pushing the pedal down will force the brake hydraulics threw the brake hose,but the colasped hose will not allow the fluid to return,therefore holding the caliper from returning to it`s idle place
