Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD
I HAVE A 2005 SILVERADO CHEVY 1500 AND THE BRAKES KEEP GETTING HOT AND LOCKING UP, I HAVE REPLACED THE ROTORS, CALIPERS ,BRAKE PADS AND LINES. AND IT IS STILL DOING IT, ANY IDEA WHAT ELSE IT COULD BE?
It can be your pressure regulating combination valve!!! Follow the brake lines to a block on the frame under the master cylinder, remove and replace... Not as easy as it sounds.

Hope that only D O T 3 brake fluid was poured in master cylinder , any oil based fluid will cause seals to swell and cause brakes to lock up after braking and pedal release , look into master and fluid should be clear , if you see clouds , good indication of fluid contamination , only use fluid from sealed container

A couple things come to mind.......did you open the master cyl when you seated the calipers? if not then they are most likely under pressure...if this is the case simply open the master cyl and relive the pressure..........next ideal is that maybe you didnt lube the caliper slides and that is causing a problem and just for grins and giggles you could havea internaly riptured brake line that will mot allow the pressure to back off....just a thought

Have someone push & release pedal while at wheel with problem. See if it takes a while or slow to release. If yes, have wrench ready on bleeder screw, and try again, if it sticks/holds, crack bleeder screw, if it releases, I'd replace hose.
