Customer Question

We have a 2003 Saturn Vue. The brakes were locked up so we changed the Brake master cylinder, the front drive side caliper, which was the tightest locked up, and bleed. took for a test drive and the front drivers side was smoking and locked up, along with the other tires being quite hot to the touch.
