Q: My brakes are sticking

asked by on

I've replaced my calipers,flex hoses, wheel cylinders and bled brakes, I'm lost, brakes are on top please help

My car has 250000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

It’s quite possible that perhaps you have a warped brake rotor that’s causing this to occur; or the wheel bearings are loose inside the hub; which can cause the rotor to ’wobble’ and create an issue with the brake pads sticking. The problem could also be a problem with the brake booster, the brake master cylinder or honestly a number of individual brake system components. To know for certain, you might want to have a professional brake mechanic complete a brake system inspection for you; to help pinpoint the source of your braking issue.
