Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Changed disk pads on my car, when I drive the breaks drag until they completely hold. Took it back n the guy blead the breaks but I still have the problem. its causing the car to overheat as well because i have to press the gas hard to move. please help!
Also check part numbers for the pads he put on. Then see if outside pads have a squeller clip on one end. The clip is there to warn of low pads. The clip may possibly **** the pad if it is put on the wrong side of the rotor. Jack up each front wheel and see if both are grabbing. If 1 side it would pull. Do not know if it is humanly possible to put the back pads on the front and vice versa. Twisted brake line suggested by other expert would be reason bleeding is not stabilizing. Sometimes there is a favored wheel you start with in bleeding because of the antilock stuff.

I assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably shoes..is it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together wrong..id say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!
