Assuming all calipers, pins etc have been lubricated and checked properly, I wouldn't rule out the flex hoses at the calipers. They have been known to deteriorate internally and cause flow problems, which would restrict back flow on release of pedal.

There are a number of issues that can cause overheating disc brakes. Disc brakes, when released, separate from the disc by the action of the rotor moving between them (since no rotor is perfectly true, there is a small about of wobble and it pushes the pads away from the rotor surface). Things that can cause this to go wrong are:

  1. Caliper pistons that have rust rings that cause sticking. This most often will happen right after or shortly after replacing old, work out pads with new ones. Because the caliper piston was extended out farther with the worn pads, its surface may get rusty. This rust can cause sticking when the piston is pushed back into the bore with the new, thicker pads.
  2. Caliper slide bolts will rust and get sticky, not allowing the caliper to release properly and re-center itself on the rotor. What you often see here is that one pad (inner or outer) is totally worn out and the other seems normal.
  3. Rusty brake lines/caliper internals can cause restrictions in the flow of brake fluid and hold pressure after the brake pedal is released.
It is highly recommended that whenever you change your brake pads, you replace the caliper slide bolts use a new brake hardware kit when reinstalling. The additional cost is almost always saved in longer brake pad life, and fewer complications.

You're lacking some info about this issue. Who replaced the brake pads? It sounds like they may have been incorrectly installed. Another thing... You say "brake pads" but say nothing about the brake shoes. This leads me to believe that the front pads were changed and the rear brake shoes were not. If you do not know how to change them yourself, go to a reputable place to get them checked. Be specific about your problem and have them check the front rotors and brake pads and the rear brake shoes and the drums. It is quite possible that the rear drums need to be replaced or turned. Drums and rotors are fairly inexpensive so I would consider replacing them BOTH. With a little more info, I'm sure someone here could help more Good luck!

2000 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER BRAKE SMOKING. IVE CHANGED ROTOR,PADS,CALIPER AND BLED THE BRAKES. AFTER DRIVING FOR A WHILE THE BRAKES START SMOKING FROM NOT RELEASING.


possible the master cylinder is not allowing the brakes to release all the way. also did you check the slider bolts on the brakes to make sure there not binding? if there new or all the brakes are smoking i would lean towards the master cylinder

How to replace brake pads on 1988 plymouth voyager



The best way is to buy a caliper kit.. it will have the pads and new calipers. Just replacing the pads is kind of a band-aid fix.. The parts for the last brake job I did were $200. (95 Toyota PU) .. this included the rotor too... there will be a core charge for the calipers.. . sometimes you find more things wrong once you start inspecting everything.. If you are cheap, go to the wreckiing yard.. the 1989-90 Voyagers will work.. you have a "first generation" Voyager..

You will have to get the caliper off to replace the pads, odds are that if you went down to the metal.. the rotors are dust..

Plus, over time the rotors tend to warp.. this will cause premature pad wear even if you just replace the pads.. Brakes aren't something I scrimp on.. Jim

this sounds like the rubber flexy hose is breaking up and blocking the line, see if you get fliud flow if you release the hose at the caliper, if it is not gushing out when you press the pedal then loosen the body end and try again, if it then flows well change the flexy pipe (or both to be safe) then re bleed and road test

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while plymouth voyager 1998


Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

the master cylinder needs to be "bench-bled" before installation, if you are doing this and still having the problem, did you look into changing the rear brakes as well? check rear wheel cylinders for any small leaks
