Have your rotors turned and replace the flexible feed lines going to the calipers. Any little bit of dirt or rust in those lines will not let fluid flow back to the master cylinder and will keep the front calipers compressed.

SOURCE: brake sticking on new caliper

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

SOURCE: caliper is sticking

the ABS valve in the ABS hydraulic control unit is leaking pressure and causing brake to apply is the most likely thing wrong..

Front rotor brakes on 1978 panel truck .they lock up temporarily ,need replacing or cleaning ?


if they are locking up this sounds more like a hydraulic problem like the calipers pistons are sticking/seizing and need replacing. also if the caliper slide surfaces are worn/dirty can cause calipers to stick as well as the hydraulic brake hoses sometimes separate internally which can also cause the brakes to stick. the bottom line is have the front brakes checked out for condition and operation.

Back brakes coming on before front on snow and skidding


the way the car brakes are on todays cars are. the front brakes a supposed to grab a second before back brakes. so I would look to see if fluid is ok! and check out the front brakes, you could have a sticking caliper, thats stuck in and not applying the front brakes properly. have a good day !! also when you check the brakes make sure the caliper slide pins are ok. if not the caliper will hang up. if they are sticking replace caliper pins and grease them up good so caliper slides on them. my 2000 malibu had a similar problem and I found that the pins on caliper were bad, replaced them and all is fine.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L front passenger brake sticks


First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

Front brake is sticking


This is caused by a faulty caliper or a break line (the rubber line from metal line to caliper..
In majority of cases its the caliper..
