Q: new brakes and wheels are getting hot

asked by on

why are the rotors getting hot

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

A: Overheating rotors are usually caused by ...

Hello.

Overheating rotors are usually caused by one of two things. It may be possible that the rotors are excessively worn, and are too thin to handle the heat generated when braking. This is more likely if the rotors have been reused when new pads were last installed. It may also be possible that the calipers are dragging and causing the rotors to overheat. This can be caused by bad calipers, or by an issue with the hydraulic system. I would recommend having the brakes thoroughly inspected by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, to determine if any of the components may be faulty and make a repair from there.
