Hello! Welcome to justanswer!
Have you done brake hoses and brake calipers?
Yes I have new brake hoses and calipers. The brakes lock up after about 5 to 10 minutes of driving especially when the temperate is about 70 degrees. Sometime the start smoking if I drive to long.
Does it have ABS and do all four brakes start to drag?
I have ABS brakes
Do all 4 brakes lock up or just the front?
Just the front brakes
Its either the brake booster or the ABS unit is contaminated with real dirty fluid. I suspect the booster though. Flush the brakes with new fluid and replace the booster. In the unlikely event that does not work, the ABS unit would have to be the problem. All of this is only true if the front calipers and brackets are in perfect order.
Do you have any ideal what the cost would be to replace the brake booster?
Sorry for the delay...
The part is about $140 and the labor is 1.8 hours.
