GEO PRIZM BRAKE FLUID PROBLEM

Latley the frount end has been over heating and locking up. The rims git hot and the car stops. What could be the reason for this? Manuel 1.6

Disc brakes are dragging. When it happens again, start by loosening the steel lines at the master cylinder. If they release, suspect contaminated brake fluid. If they do not release, open the bleeder screws on the calipers. If that makes them release, look for a constricted flexible hose or sticking calipers.
