Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
If the front wheels drag when hot. drive the car, get it warm, lift up the car, try to turn the wheel, ck both wheels, now loosen one of the front caliper bleeders, do the wheels now turn? if so its a hydraulic problem. if it does not make a difference, then the caliper is bad.... IF letting the bleeders loose lets the wheel spin free,tighten the bleeder back up, now pump up the brake pedal till its stiff and now the wheel should be hard to turn again, now loosen the lines at the master cyl. do the wheels spin free or are the stiff still? IF they are still stiff, now loosen the front lines where the rubber line begins to go to the caliper. still stiff? now loosen the caliper, it should be free if it is then the front hoses are stopped up.........common.
