I have a 2001 f250 7.3 diesel. I'm having a problem with the brakes, it seems like the brakes are being applied a large percentage of the time its being driven.
The calipers are cool to the touch, the rotors are very hot after its driven even just a short distance. But sometimes they are not bad just warm but most of the time they are hot.
My ABS light is not on. I pulled the 60 amp fuse to take it out of the circuit, just to check if it was the abs module creating the problem.
Drove it for a day the rotors were warm (normal) had no brake drag, second day I drove it and I am back to the original problem of the brakes being extremely hot.
Before I had the problem I put on new rotors, new brake lining, new brakes hoses front and rear, & flushed new fluid through the system.
Also new fluid was flushed through the power steering and hydro vac system.
Does anyone have any idea what would be causing the brake drag & rotors to get extremely hot?? Could the master cylinder be part of the problem? I have been trying to figure out a solution for two months.
