Customer Question
Excessive heat on front...

Excessive heat on front wheel lug nuts at high speed on my 2001 buick.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '01 Buick?

Lesabre

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your LeSabre yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had my front wheel brake pads replaced twice in the last two weeks

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The last time i had the brake pads change was today. the mechanic said it was normal for the lug nuts to get hot.
