SOURCE: Front Brake Pads locked up on Rotor

Have the brake pads been so very work they are down to the metal? This could cause the caliper piston to extend too far and not be able to retract properly.
Calipers Fail mostly from a cut in the rubber boot around the pistion dirt and debris get in there and rust the piston and it cannot retract properly Do they retract after they cool Down? if so the brake fluid has "boiled" if brake fluid is not changed about every 24,000 miles condensation builds up and lowers the boiling point of the brake fluid causing this problem.
Tell me does it happen after a long drive or siting a long time in heavy bumper to bumper traffic in hot summer weather? I recommend a complete brake fluid flush an change the calipers with NEW ones ot rebuilt and use dielectric grease on all points of metal to metal contact between the caliper an the mount bracket and thee ends of thee pada n the slide points they ride on and the pins that go through thecaliper and thread into the mount only dielectric not regular grease it will cause sticking and a worse problem than you have now.

SOURCE: Right front wheel/disc brake? heat up

most likely a brake line causing problem. it is either the rubber hose or caliper sticking. the rubber hose will collapse and cause pressure to stay on the caliper

If you smell burning - the caliper might not be opening properly.. Break might be sticking..

Intermittant screeching noise by rear passenger side


Your description makes me worry. If you have a strange, unknown screeching noise coming from the right rear wheel and now there is a burning smell. Please stop using it and have it looked at as soon as possible. There are a few things that could be the cause of these symptoms. Wheel bearing failure, seized brake caliper or frozen caliper sliders, damaged brake line, seized E-brake cable, or improperly installed brake-pads. In any case, if you continue to drive this car, with these symptoms. You may cause a break-down (requiring a tow), or cause a fire. Let me know if I can answer any other questions or how the repair goes, good luck.

Mazda5 rear right brake gets hot, sometimes smells burning.


Try simple/free things first: put car on jack stands,turn wheels to see if you hear pads/shoes dragging after brake pedal on/off,pads should free-float after brake pedal release and if not releasing (by the way,was any brake fluid spilled accidentally on the pads??),more than likely bad caliper;sure the pads are correct ones (thickness) for your car rotors/calipers???. Hope this helps. Alberto

We have a Mitshubishi Executive -year 2007. gotten second hand. It was fine for over a year and then a phenomenon occured and happens at irregular intervals--shaking of the wheel. VIbrations are felt in...


Computer testing is not going to find most mechanical failures. The computer systems in your vehicle controll electrical circuits.
It sounds to me like you may have some suspension bushings that are worn out. If it feels like the front (i.e. the sterring wheel is shaking, then check all the front suspension parts for looseness and wear. If it feels like the rear, make sure that the strut arms for the rear suspension do not have worn out bushings. Check all of the struts and/or shocks.
I had one of these one time that would be cruising down the highway with no problems, then you hit a rough spot in the pavement or a small pothole and the thing would start shaking so violently that it was threatening to go off the road. It turned out to be worn out bushings in the rear suspension.

The van smells and the lug nuts are gettign burning hot after it is driven for only 10 minutes.


my best guess would be a brake pad or caliper that is sticking on the "on" position. This will cause the brake to generate a high amount of heat and it will heat up the lugnuts. the smell should smell like burning brakes because that is what is happening. the smell itself is hard to describe . if it gets extremely hot you will see smoke coming from the brake that is not working correctly. if it is one brake doing it the steering should also "pull" to the side of the problem. right wheel brake dragging will cause the vehicle to "pull" or verr to the right side.

Scraping noise while turning left


Could be your wheel bearing or your axle.Well jack the left side of the car and shake the wheel little bit and see if there is any play on the wheel and also turn the wheel with your hands and hear if there is any strange scrapping.

Squeking wheel off and on while driving


get your car to a service centre immediately, squeaking usually indicates worn brake pads, most brake pads now have things called shims, that let out an almighty strange squealing sound that goes on and off as the wheel turns, as you get faster, it gets quicker, it might be front brakes or rear brakes, but make sure you get them all checked, i have had on more than one occasion, front left brake pads ok, front right low, or rear and vice-versa

Funny noise/squeal from LH wheel area on turning RH bends


Check your brakes for excessive wear or uneven wear. There are metal objects attached to the brake pads, that when worn they touch the rotors creating a metal squealing sound. This serves as a warning to prevent additional damage to your braking system, replace if pads are worn. If this isn't the case, if 4WD have your shafts, hubs bearings checked, if 2WD have your wheel bearings checked. Hopefully this helps

Creaky sound upon tapping brake, and brown right rear tire


Looks like you need to change the brake pads sooner than later, the brown residue is the brake dust and the burning smell might be the dust hitting the the tyre.
