The flexible hoses that go to the caliper have a reputation for collapsing internally which I think may be your problem. This is invisible but obstructs the flow of brake fluid from returning from the caliper when the brakes are released. Have a look at these and consider replacing and let me know how it works out.

good luck and please let me know if you have any further questions

How do I check and/or find a brake proportional valve oem replacement part for a 1999 Lincoln Continental


proportional valves are designed to give the right amount of hydraulic pressure to the back brake to prevent them locking up with a resultant loss of control of the vehicle
replacement of calipers would only be need once to fix jammed or leaking pistons but the pads may have to be replaced more often.
if it only the front brakes that is the problem ,I suspect that the fault will be in the compensating ports of the master cylinder that is not releasing the fluid back into the reservoir and the resultant heat build up from the pads still in contact with the discs is building up brake pressure and so keeping the pads on the discs to the point where lock up is evident
failed proportioning valves will result in no brake action to the rear wheels or rear wheel lock up
If parts are not available from the manufacturer spares department, they should be still be available from reputable brake shops as car manufacturers do not make brake parts as such but rely on brake manufacturers to supply items to specifications
the unit will be repairable by an accredited shop and failing that would be available from the wreckers.

Lincoln Continental Brake problems Brake on drivers side front lock up traction control light on ABS light on this has been a problem since we got car


Not a problem if you have the ABS System properly
diagnosed

I know what your saying, but common sense says there
are people capable of resolving the issue,you just have
to find that skilled person & one who likes fords

If what you saying is correct & the left front was dragging,
you could not use the car as the hubs would over heat &
you would have resolved the problem long ago.

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.

Having trouble replacing rear brake pads on a 1994 Lincoln Conntinental. Purchased a special tool to conpress the wheel cylinder. Left hand threads? Tried right handed and no luck. Please help!


The tool only turns in the parking brake adjuster
(clockwise)
You still have to push the piston in.

Open the bleeder valve
You have to flush the system on ALL
vehicles every 2 years anyway.

sounds like the flexable line close to the wheel is bad.
it has plastic inside it and when they get old the plastic breaks apart and plugs the line.

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.

92 Lincon rear brakes locked up


You will probably need to replace the brake lines. You should do this soon as the constant pressure will cause the rotor to heat warp. You should replace both brake lines to prevent future problems.
