Why does only one front brake get really hot?

(1990 Chevrolet S10 Blazer)
in Longmont, CO on June 16, 2010
I recently replaced caliper and pads also bled the brakes twice but I am still having my passenger front brake/rim heat up beyond touch i have to wait for them to cool down before working on them?

Could be a bad brake line, the one that attaches to the calaper, inspect it, if it's cracked or damaged, it may not let the pressure back out, and the brake stays ingaged

I had the same problem, it was the hose, looked fine but collapsed inside. Thanks

Finally had to take it the local repair shop...found out the brake lines collapsed....had to replace both brake lines! So, just leaving this message for others to see in case they have the same problem....check those brake lines! So you were right here!

put new bolts and sleeves in the caliper and greese them with a quality high temp greese
