    it was the master cylinder leaking in the brake booster, but thanks for your help.

    Mechanics can not find the problem, replaced calipers, rotors, and now abs valves while the abs sensors where done six months ago.

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.

2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 New Rotors, Calipers, Pads, and rubber lines, why do all four brakes not release completely and they get hot?


I would think it is something going on with the master cylinder or booster. Even the ABS could be affecting it.

I have a 2000 chevy silverado, the front left brakes keep getting stuck and i just change caliper for the second time so i know its not that.


It may be a bad rubber brake line that connects to that caliper, preventing brake fluid from exiting the caliper. Older rubber brake lines can collapse internally and prevent fluid passing through. If the rubber feels spongy, it needs replacing.

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.


This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

Replaced rear rotors and pads on 1999 4wd silverado, they now get burning hot , greased pins ok, whats wrong ??


make sure the pads move very freely inside the caliper bridge rust can build up and bind pads causing excess friction. never hurts to double check the parts purchased are the correct application.

Instructions for replacing brake pads on 2005 dodge ram 1500 4wd


Remove Tire
On the back ot the caliper ( holds Brake pads) there are two bolt or Screws ( usually allen heads) loosen those screws and remove them. pull off the caliper. check your rotor check for grooves and you might want to take them to get turned ( cleans the surface by taking a thin layer of metal off.

Using a C clamp or Disk brake pad tool carefully and slowly compress the piston back into the caliper....Slowly. Pace ne break pads in caliper and slide it back on to the rotor... replacing the bolts tighten them up...replace tire and you should be good to go. Remember to pump you breaks to get the pads to adjust will be soft at first. there should be no need to bleed the brakes.

Soft pedal brakes 1977 silverado


You will may want to check your calipers to make sure the pistion or pistons depending on your truck are pushing the brake pad against the rotor> While you are down there you might want to check out the rotor and brake pads as well. To check the rotors make sure there isn't any hot spots due to over heating your brakes as well as an out of round rotor. To check the pads just have a quick look at them to see if there is any scoring or uneven pad wear. remember that uneven pad wear can also be caused by the calipers
