I do not thing that they ever would get hot enough to warp. If they are not running true one side will be thicker than the other , so mic. a few spots and then put a dial indicator or on it and check for run out tight each lug nut the dame foot pounds

You most likely have a problem w/ the brake fluid being contaminated. Have u ever had the brake fluid changed? Everytime u need brakes, u should bleed the brakes to remove the old fluid. This is something most people DO NOT do, and the old fluid ruins the calipers and brake cylinders. Look in the master cylinder at the fluid. Is it dark, or clear? When the fluid goes bad, it'll not be clear. Fluid also absorbs moisture which is terrible for the brake system. Make sure any bottles of brake fluid are closed tightly after opening. Moisture and contaminants will corrode the inside of the calipers and brake cylinders, and the pistons stick and bind, and will finally totally seize up. Flush the system starting at the bleeder that's the greatest distance away from the master cylinder, then next greatest distance, 3rd greatest, then closest. Bleed each wheel until fluid runs out clear, and then a few more times to be sure u flushed it all out. Check the master cylinder often, so u don't run it so low it draws in air, or u will have more bleeding to do to get the air out too. U might be able to dissassemble the caliper if it's very recently changed, clean it up, check for any crud and coat w/ clean fluid, reassemble. Good Luck, let me know how u make out. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Rotors keep warping. Parking brake=caliper sticking?

well first of all just because they can be turned dosent always mean that you should do it, now a days rotors are alot cheaper to just replace them, however whatch where you buy them. in most cases you get what you paid for, Like cheap rotor prices=less life, same for the pads and how hard the driver uses the pedal. and as for the "classic rotor warp" thats not always the case with these newer cars having more movable joints than ever befor, it could be, bad hub bearing,bad lower ball joint...etc....good luck

SOURCE: I have a 2004 ford

you don't lube the piston only the studs that hold your caliper it have to slide freely on them some times rust, dirt or using the wrong tools for them cause them to drag or jam i hope thats your problem otherwise i recommend to have it checked by a specialist as you may have issues with the antilock valve body or the splitter !

1997 ford f150 2wd, anti lock rear. I replaced brake pads on both frt. Now one side is dragging. Wheel bearings seem to be ok - no slack. Would my rotor be warped, causing the heat up? Also - all I seem to...

the brake drag could be caused by a brake caliper sticking and not releasing, which means replace both calipers and bleed system, as usually when one goes bad the other is not far behind. another thing is if a brake flex hose has collapsed internally it won`t allow the caliper to be released completely. the name for the bearing is called inner wheel bearing. as far as the rotors if they haven`t been changed or turned and have heated up enough that you could smell brake material then change them in pairs.

Why does the brakes drag on occasion?

Have changed the brake hoses? A weak or soft hose will collapse when you release the brakes. This will slow the caliper releasing.

How do i replace the front calipers on my 2001 4runner,done lots of pad and rotor replacement but never any front calipers?thx.

Pretend like you're changing the rotors but don't take the rotors off. Instead, take the hydraulic line off the caliper using a line wrench. Have the new caliper ready and quickly hook the line up and tighten. Put the new caliper back on. The caliper comes with the piston collapsed, so very little bleeding is needed. Crack the bleeder open and see if it will gravity bleed. If nothing comes out, have someone push the pedal down while you loosen and then tighten the bleeder. Have them hold it down until you tighten to avoid drawing air into the caliper on the backstroke. Watch the reservoir carefully as the piston comes out--keep it full so you don't draw air into the lines. Repeat the pushing of the pedal and opening and closing the bleeder until no air comes out. Then continue pumping the pedal until the piston has closed the gap between the pads and rotor. Go to the other side and repeat. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My girlfriend put powersteering flud in the brakes and now the calipers stick. i know cause i replaced pads and found the uneven ware and the car shakes after 10miles. the calipers look good i was...

when you take the lines off the calipers, put a small screwdriver between the front brake rotors and the back pad and gently pry the piston back into the caliper. use a larger screwdriver once it starts to compress. All of the fluid should come out the back of the caliper. Catch it in a pan. Once both calipers are collapsed, hook the brake lines on the calipers and gravity bleed the lines thru the caliper bleeders. make sure to keep the reservoir full while bleeding. After bleeding, you will need to pump the brake pedal to bring the pads back to the rotors. refill the reservoir after doing that.

On the temp gage, open the radiotor cap, if you have one. run the engine until it is hot and the thermostat opens--you should be able to see coolant flowing inside the radiator. Fill the radiator and keep it full if it goes down any. I think it should bleed itself like this, but look around for any bleed ports either on top of where the hoses connect to the engine or else they might be along the hoses. There is no mention of coolant bleed ports in the manual.

If this doesn't fix it, get back to me.

Why would passenger front brake get hot?

it means the brake caliper is hanging up dragging the pads on the rotor causing heat. replace caliper and bleed brakes. also check the flexible hose that connects to that caliper. could be collapsed inside not allowing fluid to return. if in doubt replace it too at the same time with caliper and bleed brakes.

Replace disc pads procudure

They are actually pretty simple, but check or replace the rotors before you install new pads. The front discs have 2 bolts per caliper as do the rears. There are hardware clips that are different on the front and rear.

You unbolt the caliper and tie it up with a rope or coat hanger so the caliper does not hang by the brake hose. Service the rotors and then when you are ready to replace the caliper, you take off the master cylinder cover. Then you use a "C" clamp to drive the caliper piston flush into the caliper. Doing this will force Brake fluid back into the Master cylinder. This is why the Master cylinder cap must be off. Attach the brake pads with a chemical to eliminate rattles and then slide the loaded caliper over the rotor. Attach the 2 bolts on the caliper and then you are ready to bleed the system.

Repeat this on each wheel and then bleed all 4 wheels. There will be very little air in the system using this method. The back brakes have the E-Brakes inside the rotors. If you pull off the rear rotors you will have to loosen the E-brakes by turning the Starwheel inside the rotor to allow for more clearance. Adjust the same Starwheels by tightening until independent wheel drags substantially, then loosen up 5 or more clicks on the Starwheel.

The calipers will take care of themselves and center themselves through use. Thats about all I can say about this process. I hope this helps you.

Warped jeep rotors

Three items that can cause that are seized caliper slide pins, frozen (partially) caliper piston or an internally failing brake hose (rubber one from body to caliper) Problem with any of these will keep caliper partially applied and will overheat and warp the rotor. Also, I recommend torquing wheel lugs when assembling...use star pattern.
