2012 Ford Taurus Q&A
2012 Ford Taurus Question: Rear brakes are dragging. How to fix?
Both sides are dragging. Doesn't seem to be the calipers. With it jacked up and the car in park there is some drag. I put it in neutral and a lot of drag. I noticed it the first time about two months ago after driving. Left rear disc was extremely hot. Drove home and it didn't get hot at all. In fact was cool to the touch when I got home. Continues to do that, occasionally drag and occasionally not. Could it be electronic? Thoughts? - iowarob
What did the brake PAD inspection tell you? Wearing evenly? - ziptie12
My guess is brake master cylinder pushrod adjustment is too tight or the rod or piston isn't fully retracting. Gear selection won't change it, neither will electronics. You had to press the pedal to put it into N which pressurized the system. Try again but this time loosen the master cylinder nuts a couple turns, if the problem stops you have a pushrod issue. - DonziGT230
How many miles on the car?.... Possibly a warranty issue.... See dealer!!! Don't start working on it... Have it checked out!! - pushrod
