Brake Issue!

Hey guys! Im posting this here too hoping to get some help soon. Im having issues with my driversive front brake. Sometimes that caliper will stick or something. I can smell brake and the heat is a lot. This only happens sometimes too. I just replaced the pads and greased the sliders. Could something be wrong with the caliper, even if its only happening sometimes? What about the master cylinder? Hoping maybe someone has heard of this issue or something. Thanks guys!

Dave, did you replace the clips and sliders and whatnot on the pads? Clean out the grooves that the pads sit in really well? The pads need to be able to slide as well as the caliper backing off.

So it was definitely my caliper that was acting up. Monday this week it finally fully froze on me. Changed the caliper and changed the fluid out. Going to replace the other side caliper and discs when i get some funds.
