Re: Brakes Dragging

Burned, I agree he needs to check rears, but it sounds to me like his front caliper(s) (one or both sides) have decided to start sticking and are not fully releasing, creating the drag and heating up the rotors/fluid. Check this first, easy to do. If so, you will need new calipers, and you will need to bleed the break system, so it will be good to know what, if anything also needs doing at the rear. You will need to check the rotors. too much heat and you may warp them. Now will probably be a good time to do the pads of course too.
