Front breaks hot.

Recommended Posts

I drove the ol Dodge some today, cause it hasn't gotten driven much lately. Maybe 20 mins on back roads.  I may have done a little "fun" driving but not much. I am not hard on it at all. Anyway I am pulling back into the driveway and I catch a wif of hot break. Both of the front breaks are hot enough I can feel heat coming from um.  I replaced rotors, pads, and calipers about 10,000 miles ago. It didn't pull left or right while stopping. I think I'll drive it around again tmw and see what it does. But what do ya think it might be? Master cylinder? Flexible break lines? Or just because it sat for a little while??

Just keep an eye on it.  Since you hadn't driven it in a while, the rotors probably had a nice skim of rust on them.  that takes a bit of time to wear off, and all that time is extra drag, making more heat.  But definitely keep an eye on it.

Typically binding calipers is from debris in the piston area binding up the pistons. Typically people bleed the brakes and it pushing the trash from the master cylinder into the calipers and settles to the bottom now after a small amount of time the piston sliding back and forth it will eventually bind up.

Well I reckon it was just a little rust build up.  Drove it yesterday and hauled the tractor and bushog today. No issues at all.  Glad it was nothing!
