    would a master cylinder effect only one side? Same problem and I already replaced all lines, flex tube, pads & caliper.

Ok you will need to jack up and remove the tire and wheel assembly. Remove the brake caliper fasteners (bolts) and you will see slide pins. see if the move freely with a little effort. If they don't replaced caliper. Its causing you brake shoes on that side to drag on the rotor.

It means the brake caliper is hanging up dragging the pads on the rotor causing heat. replace caliper and bleed brakes. also check the flexible hose that connects to that caliper. could be collapsed inside not allowing fluid to return. if in doubt replace it too at the same time with caliper and bleed brakes.

I spent alot of money on this last year. Start with the Master cylinder. If the fluid does not "return" the brakes stay depressed causing them to overheat. I got one for the junk yard for $10 after replacing everything else including the ABS which needs a ODBIII programmer to bleed them. Start with the Master Cylinder!.

Passenger front brake releases very slowley and gets very hot

Replace the brake hose going to it. They deteriorate from the inside and clog up. I recommend you replace all of them as when one goes the rest will shortly follow.

Brake petal goes all the way to the floor no leaks antwhere front passenger pad stuck closed on rotor front passenger rotor pad bolts very hot after driving

the bolts are getting really hot because the friction of the pads running on the rotor the whole time whilst driving.
the pedal problem could be a few things but the most likely is either that the brake fluid needs replacing because it's got water in it,
there's air in the lines or the brakes master cylinder seals need replacing due to age.

I have a 98 ford explorer that pulls quickly to the right when i let go of the wheel is this simply an alignment?

it may be just an alignment problem, but could also be a stuck brake caliper on the passenger side front if it pulls to the right when you let go of the sterring wheel. do you smell brakes hot around that passenger front wheel after you've driven it for say 20 miles or so? if you do smell the brakes hot, then you probably have a bad brake caliper on that passenger front. if no smell, then you're on track with the alignment. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fix

Front Brakes

You may have this problem due to contaminated (and overheated) brake fluid. Most people don't usually flush out the brake system, which should be done whenever u do a brake job. Since yours are overheating also, that has to be diminishing the life of the fluid. Brake fluid will also absorb moisture (which is one reason u see instructions to use brake fluid from 'a sealed container.') So, be sure to thoroughly flush the system when u replace components this time, the contaminated fluid has been causing the calipers to 'drag' which wears out the brake pads prematurely.
