Open a bleeder after the brakes have been pumped up tp see if hose is holding pressure.(not letting it return to the master) If squisrt out the caliper I would suspect the hose. also make sure the slides are free moving

Brake rotors getting red hot


Simple:(unless you are racing autocross), the brake pads are not releasing. This can be caused by several posible causes:

Clogged or?fices inside the Master Brake Cylinder.
Malfunctioning brake booster
Sticking brake calipers.
Damaged brake hoses.

A complete brake inspection is necessary, but anyway, overheated disc brake rotors that got red-hot will most probably got twisted or damaged and will be in need of replacement.

In my Stratus (a 2002 turbocharged R/T Sedan) I installed Premium ATE Brand rotors which have an elliptical slot. These Premium discs are needed at my altitude of more tan 7350 ft above sea level because engine vacuum is barely adequate to stop the car, and by using those rorots together with ceramic brake pads from Centris Parts (Posi-Quiet Brand) I achieved much better braking power.

After aplying E-brake, Left rear wheel is locked up?


The parking brake cable is not releasing, usually due to corrosion within the cable jacket or inside the drum if it has drum rear brakes. Put the rear end up on jack stands and have a helper push and release the parking brake and watch what the cable is doing on both sides. You should be able to see the hang up. If it is inside the brake drum you may want to try a bit of WD40 applied to the cable where it enters the backing plate. Do not go overboard with it as it will collect inside on the drum's braking surface.

Replaced left front caliper and both front rotors. front of car shakes when I apply the brakes but stops when I push harder. Shakes again if I have to slam on the brakes


you may need to bleed the brakes and clean the rotors of any brake fluid. usually tires get bad if u had this problem before. i mean rotate the tires see if this stops the shaking.

Rear brakes


After removing tire pull bolts holding brake calipers to rotor. Use a clamp or something in that nature to push old brake shoe into housing that way you wont have to bleed your brake system. Replace new shoes and reinstall caliper. Start vehicle and pump up brakes before traveling make sure to test brakes first to make sure no fluid was lost.

Pull to the left, Brakes


Sounds like it was pulling before the brake job...if so the only thing you didn't replace was the rotors, I assume you turned them? and did you see hard spots on the rotor? discolored area that didn't cut the same......switch the rotors left to right and see if the problem moves or just replace them if they've been cut twice.
