Question about 1997 Ford Expedition
I brought new brake caliper, new pads, and brake rotor. But when i apply on the brakes, and release the pedal the caliper piston are not releasing the brake rotor.
Most likely the rubber hoses are bad going to the caliper.They will let fluid out, But not back in.There collapsing in side,Or the metal hold down is growing rust.Squeezing the hose shut.Either way replace the hoses!

Your description is very good. The problem you describe indicates that the rubber brake hose is collapsed. This is usually an internal issue and is not visible from the out-side.
Replace the hose and your will be solved.

SOURCE: Brake Caliper will not release
your line is clogged somewhere. disconnect it from the caliper and the abs block and blow through it; a small piece of debris could cause big problems. also if your master cyl has two outputs for front brakes then it could be causing the problem. does it not release only when it's running or even with the engine off? sometimes the booster changes the piston position slightly in the mc and blocks the fluid from returning to the reservoir
