1991 GMC Sonoma Q&A
1991 GMC Sonoma Question: What is the possible cause for the front brake rotors to get hot & start to stick?
This just started up on me. I inspected the right rotor and brake pads on the pass. side and the rotor was wore bad on the back side. I put another rotor and brake pads on and I tested it afterwards and the fronts wheels start getting hot and start seizing, after driving around a few blocks. The brake fluid is level and full. If more info is needed let me know what is needed and I'll put that info here?! - wbelisle
The rotors wont stick but the brake calipers may drag if they are starting to seize. calipers get damaged if the brake fluid is not flushed periodically or if the caliper piston rubber boots get ripped or if the caliper guide pins are not lubricated and start to bind. Brakes can also drag if the brake master cylinder does not return fluid to the brake fluid reservoir. - patrick mannion
sounds like your brake calipers are freezing up replace them, - Visitor
