1988 Lincoln town car front brake calipers lock up have replaced both calipers. It drives perfect for awhile then they will lock up again.


When you replaced the calipers, did you also replace the caliper frame and slides? Start there. It is common in ford disk brakes to get "stuck" slide pins as they can rust inside the caliper causing the brakes to fail to release the rotor when you let off the pedal. Another cause is the flex line that connects the caliper to the metal lines at the body. As it ages, the inside of the rubber breaks down and collapses effectively becoming a check valve. Pedal force pushes fluid to the brake but separator spring pressure is not enough to make the fluid go back into the master cylinder effectively making the brakes lock up and bind. Try replacing slide pins if haven't already and replace the flex line.

Brakes not release


Sounds like your master cylinder relief port is getting plugged up. If it is feeling like a hydraulic lock ( feels like it hits something solid when you push on the pedal) I would venture to guess that the fluid is not getting a chance to flow back when the pedal is released. The easiest thing to do is replace the master cylinder and then bleed the brake system. Your wheel cylinders/calipers could also be corroded to the point of being stuck which may also exacerbate the problem...especially if you live in the northern part of the country and drive in road salt a lot. I would start with the master cylinder replacement and see if that fixes your problem,...then if it doesn't .....you will have to service the wheel cylinders/calipers after the master is replaced.

2005 silverado brakes sticking front only after driving little


I had the same problem and replaced both calipers with no change, I figured it was the master cylinder. When I pulled off the master cylinder I saw the vacume booster had about 2 cups of brake fluid in it which leaked from the front of the master cylinder. I replaced master cylinder and vacume booster and brakes work great now.

New brakes and rotors in rear 6 months ago. now losing fluid and brake light on


could be leak from master cylinder this should be evident by fluid running down between master and booster or leaking from piston seal on caliper, caliper will dip fluid onto wheel rim or road leaving a visual mess easy to see

Brakes dragging bad let sit then fine driving then 5 miles down the road it start again car will come to a complete stop wont move let it cool down its fine brakes are sticking


sounds like some one has put wrong fluid in master cylinder.replace all seals and bleed the system to get rid of wrong fluid.Also rebuild front calipers and rear wheel cylinders or calipers and replace front brake hoses and it will be good.Just done this on the same car.if you dont do all of it you will continue to have trouble.
Good luck

Brakes engaging without pressing the pedal


this is a simple job of adjusting the rod on the end of the servo that pushes the master cylinder .remove master cylinder and with help push the brake pedal down and then screw the end of the shaft in a mm or so .This will cure your problem.

Front brakes stick on


either your calipers are sticking and need replacing. OR the hoses have failed internally. and need replacing.. very rare but possible the master cylinder is not allowing the fluid to return usually caused bu a booster failing and causing some down travel in the master cylinder. I'd start by raising the front end up. appling hard brake pressure. turn the tire.. then loosen the brake bleeder to check for pressure. if the bleeder sprays fluid and the brakes release forget the calipers. if they are still tight then replace the calipers. pump them up again if they released.. and break the line free at the master cylinder. if they don't release then replace the hoses..

While driving down the road brakes want to stay engaged and not depress


It could be your master cylinder is pulling a vacuum on the lines. May be an indication of your mc failing or trapped or pocketed air in the lines. Not normal air in the lines, but, air that is trying to get out and as it does it pulls a vacuum. One other thing to look for is your brake calipers staying engaged to a certain degree, this could indicate failing calipers seal, fault brake line or wheel cylinder failure. Check out these things
