You will need to replace the wheel cylinders. always replace both sides and the shoes will need to be replaced also on both sides due to brake fluid contamination. make sure you have the drums resurfaced also!! hope this helps you!

May have over heated, damaged the seals on the brake piston.

Would suggest a re-build on the piston, but also normally would suggest replacing the shoes again. However, with new (ok, I am old, they have been around) metallic type of brake surface may not need to replace.

My left break keeps locking up when i stop


Not likely, but if you take it off and to a shop they can check it for roundness with a gauge for a nominal cost. If one drum needs replacing, it is good practice to replace both at the same time.
When the drum is off, you may spot the problem with the brakes not retracting properly. Check for broken brake springs, some holder that has come loose, the emergency cable sticking on that side. Take both drums off and compare both sides of the brakes to look for problems. See if the self adjusters threads appear to be about even on both sides. The left side may need adjusting more inward if it looks to be spread further than the right side.

Smoking rear drums


Depends on what is smoking.
If you did not clean the protective oil off the drums then yes it will stop in time. If the wheel cylinders are leaking brake fluid then no.

Brake fluid leak on rear drum


If you have no evidence of leaking outside the drum, most likely your brake piston is leaking or the drive shaft seal is leaking. Pull off the drum and look for the piston which spreads the two brake pads normally situated at the top. Inspect for leaks. If the fluid is thin, it is most likely brake fluid. If it is heavier like oil and really stinks, it is gear oil from a leaking seal.

I have a ford f150 that i have redone the brakes but all i getting is a brake pedal and then goes to floor


Bleed your brakes, starting with Right rear, left rear, right front and ending with left front. You have air in the lines or a bad master cylinder. Bleeding is the cheaper of two options.

1995 buick lesabre. brakes are gone! fluid leaking from left rear brake.


If they are drum brakes then it is most likely the wheel cylinder. these are not expensive but you will need to replace the rear brake shoes and clean all the parts with brake clean. I recomend replacing the other cylinder while your at it.

Soft brake peddle on 1994 chevy 3/4ton truck is it the back adjuster?


You might have a leak in one of your brake lines i would look at all of the lines for a leak look at the brake drums for fluid driping out of the bottom if you dont find a leak it may be time for a brake job . a soft peddel means you have air in your system.From a leak or wore out pads or shoes or a leaking wheel cylender from wore out rear shoes . watch your master cylender to see if its low on fluid.

1994 gmc back left tire break leak


Most likely rellted to the rear wheel cylinder. You need to remove the tire, probably replace the brake shoes if they are wet with fluid, wipe down brake drum with carb or brake cleaner, install new wheel cylinder and put everything else back together. Wheel cylinder is available through most auto parts outlets. Probaby less than $15.

Sounds like you have a leak in the brake system. The fluid you are seeing is brake fluid.

You need to get this fixed asap.
