I have a brake problem that I have been unable to solve. My brake caliper locked up on me one day about two months ago. It was clamping the rotor at the time, so the pads were smoking upon pulling over. So, I replaced the caliper and put some new pads on, and while I was at it, I replaced the master cylinder.
Yesterday it happened again. The heat coming from the brakes was so hot my engine began to overheat. Does this sound like a proportioning valve problem, master cylinder, or something else. I am beginning to suspect the banjo bolt that connects the rubber brake line to the caliper. I am not sure I put it back together right. Does anyone know the proper proceedure for this? I simply tried to line the hole in the bolt up with the direction the fluid would flow into the caliper.
