1988 Chevy scottsdale front brakes locked up brake fluid full help


If your brake hose collapsed internally that will cause brakes to lock to be sure its the hose and not the calipers open the bleed screw and see if the rotor release. If they stay locked then maybe calipers seized try to pry brake pads apart with caliper mounted and brake bleeder open if they return easy then change your brake hose.

98 Plymouth voyager brake issues


You never replace only one caliper

You do both sides

Bleeders are mounted to top of caliper

Have a helper in drivers seat to slowly
press brake pedal as you open & close
bleeders

Start at back & do all 4 corners

The master takes care of it's self

I just replaced the front calipers and i replaced the master cylinder as well. after i bled the system, the caliper piston is causing the brakes to drag.help!


More often then not, the calipers don't sieze up, the rubber brake hose locks pressure inside the caliper. Try pushing the caliper piston back in, then do the same with the bleeder open. If they go in hard with the bleeder closed, and easy with the bleeder open, replace the corresponding brake hose.

FRONT BRAKES LOCKING UP


To check this problem. raise the front when they are locking up. open the bleeder valve on the caliper. If the calipers release then replace the hose going to the caliper. if they don't release replace the caliper.

My rigth side front brake is locking the wheel off while driving and the brake is applied


most common cause would be a bad disk brake caliper, or bad brake hose.

the way to find out witch one, is to jack up the front of the car and put it on jack stands. put the transmission in neutral. then turn the front wheels one at a time and wile turning the wheel have some one apply the brake the wheel should stop turning immediately and then wile applying pressure on the wheel have the person in the car release the brake pedal the brake should release immediately if not, then open the brake bleeder on the offending caliper if the brake releases then. you have a bad brake hose if the brake still does not release with the bleeder open then you have a bad brake caliper.

GOOD LUCK

I have a 96 isuzu rodeo,3.2 and the brakes will lock up on their own, gradually then it takes about 15 minutes for them to release, any thoughts?


this could be caused by a few things, first you need to jack the truck up you will need all 4 wheels off the ground, put the transmission in neutral and have some one get in the truck and wile turning each wheel have the person in the truck push the brake pedal the wheel should stop instantly then have the person release the brake the brake should release instantly,( do this to each wheel ) if all brakes remain locked ( wont release instantly ) then replace the master cylinder if the both rear brakes wont release instantly replace the brake hose from the frame to the rear differential, if the both front brakes wont release replace master cylinder, if only one front brake wont release open the bleeder on that brake caliper if the wheel releases replace the caliper hose if the brake still wont release with the bleeder open replace the caliper, you should replace the caliper and brake hoses as a pair.

The caliper ,or the caliper brake hose is bad,get it to lock up,then open the bleed valve on the caliper,if the caliper turns loose of the rotor,then the hose is bad,if it does not turn loose the caliper is the part to replace.

Left caliper locking up


Jack it up and remove the wheel. Push the brake and release it. The calipers should release. If they don't, open the bleeder. If the caliper releases as soon as you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose. If the caliper doesn't release when you open the bleeder, replace the caliper.
