There are two scenarios for this, either the caliper is getting stuck and will not travel back, or the brake line itself is getting corroded on the inside and needs replaced. If it were the brake line, when you press the brake pedal your van should slightly **** to the right. If it were the caliper it should not ****, and if at all it will **** to the left. I hope this insight helps.

The flex rubber hose going to the caliber is breaking down on the inside when it goes thru the brace connected to the strut.
Apply your foot brake and release to see if the car starts to roll forward right away or does it take a few seconds. This usually happens when the hose gets about 9 or 10 years old. Just make sure you replace both left and right front hoses at the same time for safety sake. You'll even get better gas mileage..

Thats normal since new rotors are covered with grease to prevent rust .......once you burn that grease by breaking the smell and smoke will disapear

I have a 99 grand voyager and the drivers side front brake is squeling. I'm not sure how to do brakes, but was told I have disc brakes in the front and drum brakes on the rear. Should I replace the pads...


These brakes are a pretty easy fix. For the job pick up some cheap gloves, you'll need general hand tools, proper Brake Fluid (DOT 3?)some brake cleaner, a large C-clamp, new pads (front) and I'd replace the front rotors too. Place the van on jack stands, remove front tires, using some brake cleaner spray down the calipers, pay special attention to the boot around the piston to clean well (if heavy dirt is left on it, it can make for sticky caliper(s).) Place the C-Clamp ove the calliper to compressit (DO NOT TIGHTEN ON YET!) Loosen the bleeder screw on the back of the caliper and place a small tube on it, now slowly tighten on the C-clamp, this will cause the piston to gently push back in to the caliper, you'll note old fluid coming from the bleed screw. Once fully driven back (don't over tighten!) remove the C-clamp and caliper and clean up with spray. Remove and replace the rotor, install new pads (lubricate as needed) and reinstall the caliper. Repeat to other side; once done bleed brake system and replace with new brake fluid. Be carefull with brake fluid and with brake cleaner, nasty stuff!

In general this is how it goes.

I hope this may have helped!

Best regards,
Tom

Driver side front brake rubs and overheats. brake


It sounds like the caliper slides themselves are sticking, remove your caliper and check that the caliper slides are lubricated and that the caliper slides easily on them

Rumbul nnoise in front when brakes are appled


The brake pad is worn down to the rivet that holds the pad to the base.
The metal rivets are in contact with the metal brake rotor.
Metal-against-metal...
Replace both front brake pads and at least one rotor.
You should be able to see both front rotors w/o removing the wheels.
The rotor with rings like Saturn (the planet) is the one to replace.

Replace soon before the other rotor meets the same fate.

Hope this helps!

Front brake pads for 1997 ford ecscort encore


The binding of the brakes is causing the pads to overheat, which is causing the smoke. You need pull the wheel and check things out. Your caliper must be bad (not releasing). You need to replace the caliper, brake pads, and have the rotor cut (a full service parts store or shop cuts the rotor perfectly smooth on both sides), or replaced (it may be cheaper to just buy a new rotor). You should also always change the pads (and check everything else) on the opposite side. So, if u do the brakes on the driver side front, always do the front pass. side at the same time, likewise if u do rear brakes.
Whenever you do brakes u should also flush out the brake lines (by bleeding the brakes) until the brake fluid flows absolutely clear. Old brake fluid is the #1 reason for caliper failure. I've seen many times people replace brake components w/out changing the brake fluid, only to have the brakes wear out very quickly, or not function properly. good luck! hope this helps> please rate this!couontrycurt0
