    yes brakes release while opening a bleeder, no change when the caliphers or hoses were changed the vehicle will run for about 10 or 15 miles then the brakes will lock up completely

    Master cylinder don't usually cause this but they can. Do the brakes release if you open a bleeder. DId you get any change in replacing the calipers or hoses. Like maybe you got a bad one from the parts store. It happens

1994 Taurus seems to lurch backwards as I'm driving, as if its being pulled back. Wheel smells like hot metal after I stop. Bad brakes or something worse?

It appears that you have a dragging brake and knowing ford it is probably a stuck hand brake rod in the brake calipher.. Raise the vehicle from the ground and see which wheel you cannot turn freely. You may have to get a new calipher in you cannot free up the unit.

Right calipher sticks when brakes are pressed

You should have the caliper itself checked for damage and wear. If the caliper isn't causing the problem, check/replace the rubber brake line associated with that caliper. Sometimes, they swell internally and cause the brake caliper to retain pressure.

Installed a rebuilt calipher (front left), Bled that side, caliper still does seem to be working. This is a 1996 toyota carolla.

i had this same problem and i changed the caliper 3 times before finding out that the rubber hose that goes connected to it was clogged and making the caliper stick and burning out my brake pad on that side very fast.i checked the hose and it was not letting the brake fluid flow with no pressure.i replaced the hose,bled the caliper and no more problems at all. i hope this info helps.good luck and take care, manny

Back brake lights do not shut off. Plenty of brake fluid. Could the calipher be stuck, not releasing once brake let off of? 1996 Toyote Corolla.

Right at the brake pedal there is a brake light switch that can stuck in the closed position keeping the brake lights on. One way to test it is by removing one of the wires to it, if the light shuts, must be replaced.
