The first thing to replace is the front rubber (flex) line that goes to the caliper from the steel brake line. They can go bad on the inside and not allow the caliper to retract when you take your foot off the brakes. If the rear brake is sticking it isn't retracting properly also, but try the front fix first and see what happens.

Why do front brakes lock up after driving for a while?


either the brake calipers are sticking, the soft lines to calipers are stopped up, brake master cylinder is stopped up. as you drive and hit your brakes the pressure doesnt have time to bleed back.

What is causing left front caliper to continually fail. Is it related to anti lock brake system?


The hose could be collapsed internally holding residual pressure and keping the pads applied. Also make sure that the caliper is sliding free side to side.

Just completed new back pads. Screwed in rear pistons with the tool and adjusted the parking brake. went for a test ride and rear passenger rim and rotor hot and smoking?


you may have to pull that side off and see if the caliper piston moves back in place freely,if not then you will have to replace that caliper and bleed the system.some times when you move the piston back when installing new brakes the piston seal rolls and causes the piston to stick/seize when the pedal is applied.

I have a 86 lincoln mark vii and i have a problem with the right front brake the caliper doesnt want to relase after the brake pedal is released and heats up and smokes piston still moves back and forth...


replace the brake hose they get what is called a fissure inside hose and it will act like a check valve you hit brake pedal and when you let off brake pedal the fissure inside hose will hold pressure on caliper i see it all the time next time it locks up open the bleeder screw on caliper and the wheel will free up because you release the pressure that can,t go thru hose

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the front passenger side brake locks when driven for a while.


I just got a 1999 lincoln myself. And the front brakes locked up on it. Try to take off and it spit and sputter's. And floats around when try to stop. I replaced both brake calipers, pads, and one of the rotars. It had grooves wore in it. And changed the rubber hose going to the caliper. That is what the problem actually was. I noticed that the other side had already been changed beforre. But I wasn't sure. The caliper was rusted up where it got hot from rubbing. And it is posible for them to stick. Autozone $38 ea for calipers rebuilt. 40 for the pads. 20 for the rotar. And 35 for the hose. Now it drives like a dream.

Just got new brakes new rotors on my front wheels The problem is that the drivers side brake is sticking. I took it back and they told me it needed a new 'caliper'. They put it in and it's still sticking?...


This may be caused by an internally collapsed brake hose allowing fluid to go to the caliper but not allowing fluid to return back to the master cylinder.

Your brake hose is probably resricted slightly colaspsed on the inside replace the brake hose (wouldn't be a bad idea to replace both frt hoses) and did you lube your caliper slides pins

Driver side front brake rubs and overheats. brake


It sounds like the caliper slides themselves are sticking, remove your caliper and check that the caliper slides are lubricated and that the caliper slides easily on them

Just put new brake caliper on front driver side


Gravity bleed caliper, just open valve and have a coffee break and close it. Did you buy a loaded caliper with new pads on it? Check the rear wheel cylinders they may be the cause of your mushy pedal. They are cheap too.

Brake sticking on new caliper


If install done correctly, proper lube etc, and still sticking, I'd change flex line to caliper.
