I have to continuously replace calipers on my jeep, what is the problem?


wonder if the rotors are too slim. If this happens the brakes get too hot as the rotor radiates away the heat. If too hot the brakes could wear out faster.

Burning smell, very hot and all 5 lug nuts loose on same wheel


Your brake caliper and/or brake hose is hanging up not allowing fluid pressure to release. Most likely your brake rotor is already warped from excessive heat also. Replace caliper(loaded or unloaded) and hose ,bleed brake system and you're good to go.

Hi:) Sound like the brake pad need to be taken out and the caliper need to be wire brushed to clean them and anti-seize greased be for you put them back together they get road dirt on them and don't work after a few years.

Front brakes lock up


your brake calipers are stuck! replace the brake calpiers and won't hurt to replace the hoses at the same time.

One brake rotor gets very hot after 30 miles


on the wheel that is hot, jack it up and see it the wheel spins free or drags? if it drags, then loosen bleeder on the caliper, it if now spins free, you want to replace that caliper hose, if it is still dragging, then the caliper piston is stuck and you will need to replace it.

Hello,
It would appear that the front caliper assy (namely the piston) is in a near frozen or seized position. This mostly happens to the front passenger side (the side nearest the curb while driving) due to the puddles in the road.

My advice to you is to replace the caliper assembly and bleed the braking system as soon as possible as it is a safety hazard. You may find that your new brake pads on the affected side will have prematurely already been worn down a bit also!

Good Luck!
