If you open the brake fluid bleeder on that caliper you should have brake fluid dripping out. If not it could be the rubber flex hose has collapsed.If fluid drips out then the caliper is sticking and should be rebuilt or replaced.

Testimonial: "In five months I've replaced the caliper twice, and the new one is only 3-days old. When I installed the new caliper I checked bleeder. looked good."

After 20 years as an auto mechanic, I've repaired a lot of this kind of problem. It sounds to me like the rubber brake hose going to the caliper has colapsed inside. the fluid pressure gets through, but the fluid cannot return to the master cylinder so the caliper does not release it's grip on the rotor. The hose is cheap and fairly easy to replace.

Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

1992 Taurus LX. I drive 1-2 miles and left front wheel gets extremely hot. I have replaced front calipers, discs, rotors, and front brake lines plus bled system repeatedly. Only things left are Master...


I would say neither. You need to raise that wheel and see if the caliper is retracting enough to let the wheel spin free. If it is locked up, I could be a collapsed brake hose on that wheel. The rubber hoses can do that.
Also check if it is a wheel bearing problem. Is the center of the wheel hot? A bad bearing can heat up.

1999 Ford Taurus, steering wheel shakes when driving due to front passanger side tire movement/problem. The tires have been rotated and still problem from that area. What could it be?


Usually a steering wheel shake is a bad tire. Any chance you have 2 bad tires on the car? Only a front tire will make the steering wheel shake.

I have a 98 ford explorer that pulls quickly to the right when i let go of the wheel is this simply an alignment?


it may be just an alignment problem, but could also be a stuck brake caliper on the passenger side front if it pulls to the right when you let go of the sterring wheel. do you smell brakes hot around that passenger front wheel after you've driven it for say 20 miles or so? if you do smell the brakes hot, then you probably have a bad brake caliper on that passenger front. if no smell, then you're on track with the alignment. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fix ya.com

Right rear brake has slow brake fluid leak.It's a 99' Ford Taurus


leaking fluid will not cause a brake to lock up unless the wheel cylinder is leaking and caused the brake shoe to swell. If so, you need a new wheel cylinder.
