Try changing the brake hose(s) at the caliper. Not unusual for them to collapse internally and restrict fluid from flowing back and releasing brake as it should.

mcdevito75 here, Believe it or not your problem may be on the right side, if the right side caliper and or Rotor are not working right it could cause the left side to work harder and thus waer down faster. Have your local shop check it out. If you do your own work check out the right sde brakes.

mcdevito75 here, Believe it or not, your problem may be in the right side fron caliper assembly, right fron brake not operateing correctly and causeing the left brake to do extra work and thus wearing down faster. If your van pulls to the left when you apply the brakes, then the roght brake is not working so well. Beat Bet have your local repair shop examine both front brakes for proper operation.

Right front brake keeps freezing up - I've replaced pads & caliper & had rotors turned. Any suggestions?


Replace the brake hose. Could be a proportioning valve also(close to the brake master cylinder). I replace all the hose. One is bad the rest are close behind.

The left brake caliper sticks after my 97 lumina has been used for a while. I have replaced the master cylinder twice, both front rubber brake lines, and both front calipers.


Hi there...when you say it "sticks" are you think the pistons are not retracting in the calipers? Did you replace calipers with NEW ones or remanufactured/rebuilt ones? How about the caliper slides, did you replace those? About half the time this is the problem on a sticky caliper that is causing excessive brake wear. If they are off just a little bit & no longer "true" the caliper will bind and the brake pad will steadily rub on the rotor. They need to lubed with disc brake grease and the protective boot needs to be in good shape to keep the brake dust and debris out too. This is an inexpensive part, easy to replace and often overlooked by shop techs. Good luck, i hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hate to tell you but it sounds like you have a blown upper or lower intake manifold gasket. This is a very common problem with these cars. I have had mine replaced twice in 150.000 miles. It has been recalled a couple of times 4 or 5 years ago. Its not a cheap fix it ran me about $800 to have them both replaced. If this is found to be the problem when your having it fixed have the garage working on it flush out the complete cooling system of the Dex-col type anti-freeze so it can be filled with regular anti-freeze when there done. Dex-col anti-freeze is the biggest reason these gaskets fail. It eats through and breaks down the gasket over time. But its best to have a garage flush out the system due to the fact the two types of anti-freeze cant be mixed at all or it will turn to a gummy substance and clog up and ruin water pumps , radiators, and heater cores but flushing the system good will keep from any small amount of Dex col being left in the system. In my opinion the regular anti freeze keeps the engine cooler and is twice as cheap not to mention that its gasket friendly

Right front brake caliper freezes up on occassion


You either need to rebuild it correctly, or replace it - which is the most common thing to do. Since you probably have crud in it, you may have the other side crud up as well, so the best thing to do would be to change both. -or redo both brakes on the front end. Hope this helps, Rick

Re. 2004 2500 Ram


you think your caliper just froze up? those arnt very expensive usually, i would just take off the caliper and see how hard it is to press in i was looking at the wiring diagram for your vehical there is a front left front right and a rear wheel speed sensor. it looks like there is no way the abs could lock up one rear, and besides the abs is to stop the wheels from locking up not to actually lock them up, anyways im almost positive its either someone left your brake on and didnt notice which wouldnot explain only one wheel locking up, your brake cable is unajusted on that side which would make it do this all the time, or that your caliper was just freezing up on that side which is probably what it was, you should be able to notice the drag, i would replace caliper and call it a day. make sure your caliper slides are not locked up also, that would cause only one side of your pad to contact that roter and overheat it quicker, so these last two options are the only plausible solutions i can come up with, if you take that caliper off, try to move the slides that the piston have that the bolts go through to the caliper mounts. make sure those are free floating first, then i would think of replacing the caliper if it goes in unsmoothly. good luck brother any other problems or need any other help give me a shout, take care
