Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
About one year ago my right front brakes on my 1998 F-150 were hanging up. I took it to my mechanic and he replaced rotors pads and front brake lines. The problem was solved until now and now the left front brake is not releasing properly. The left front brake overheated severely yesterday because it wasn't releasing, could it be the same problem?
Sounds like the caliper needs replaced. Sometimes the pistons lock in the caliper and cause the brakes to drag. When the mechanic changed the brakes before, he pushed the pistons in all the way to accomodate the new brake pads. Now that they are wearing back down, it is getting to the warped spot in the caliper and starting to stick.
