Stuck brakes!! Crap!
So my brakes are stuck, maybe my drivers front and rear, other brakes also are really warm... I hauled a load of heifers (7, 1000# each) and then took off the trailer to take my wife to town. When I stopped I smelled a horrible burning smell. Smoke was coming from the drivers rear and my front was so hot it sizzled when I spit on it... The dealer I bought this from put pads in all around, have no idea if he greased the pins or did anything right, probably didn't even clean anything... I know there is a hydroboost issue that can happen, so I swapped out my old PS fluid for new Mobil 1 ATF...not sure how the contaminates mess with the brakes? Can anyone explain this? I know there is a TSB about it.... Also what is the common issue with these 6.4 super duty brakes? Caliper or guide pins? I have never had to change a caliper before... I am guessing this is why my mileage started sucking month ago and at the same time my stupid coolant deltas got bigger, jumped from 3-4 to 9-10, truck drives straight as an arrow, tires look good...could this be a valve or something? Hopefully i get a chance to take my wheels off tomorrow afternoon and take a look...I'm guessing the dealer that did the brakes probably did a quicky job, I guess it's my own fault for not checking their work and making sure there was new grease in the pins...any help is greatly appreciated!! I am a 6.4 brake novice...
