If you can bleed off pressure the master cylinder must be plugged up, if the problem was in the caliper it would not help to bleed.

1988 Chevy scottsdale front brakes locked up brake fluid full help


If your brake hose collapsed internally that will cause brakes to lock to be sure its the hose and not the calipers open the bleed screw and see if the rotor release. If they stay locked then maybe calipers seized try to pry brake pads apart with caliper mounted and brake bleeder open if they return easy then change your brake hose.

Can you tell me where the cylinder bleed back orifice is on a 97 land rover?


There are rubber hoses going to the brakes. Replace those hoses. they break down on the inside and won't release prussure. This causes a lock up.

If you have no e brake that tells me your problem is something to do w/rear brakes. Pull your re brakes back apart and make sure everything is seated properly. Sounds like you didn't adjust rear shoes out far enough. Double check rear adjustment THEN bleed again - rt rear -> lft rear ->rt frt -> lft frt.

The rubber brake hose may be cracked on the inside causing the pressure to remain on the caliper piston. Replace the hose and bleed the brakes to restore proper pressure to the caliper.

When bleeding you start at the rt rear to left rear to rt front to left front always checking to make sure master stays with fluid, also start by removing one bleeder at a time and make sure the hole is clean and free of dirt brake clean should flow through, do this to all 4, then have someone pump pedal 3 times and hold then open bleeder when you close bleeder tell them pump again three times, do this all around until you have a good pedal, also check for leaks after bleeding, may have bad rusted line or bad master but bleed each wheel good first.dont worry about pedal going to floor everytime, just make sure fluid flows out of all bleeders when bleeding. hope this helps.

The brakes were just replaced and they are locked up


If the calipers are locking up then the master cylinder may not be working correctly. Check the main vacuum line to the Master Cylinder and see if releasing the bleed valves on the calipers will release the brakes. If you release the calipers by bleeding while the engine is off and then they lockup when the vehicle is started then you have a master cylinder problem.

Front brakes lock up


your brake calipers are stuck! replace the brake calpiers and won't hurt to replace the hoses at the same time.
