PONTIAC TORRENT BRAKE FLUID PROBLEM

2006 Pontiac Torrent • 65,000 miles

My front breakes locked up and was smoking. I replaced the front breakes, rotors and caliper but it started smoking again, what could possible be wrong

One or both wheels? Next time one locks up, loosen the steel lines at the master cylinder. If it releases, suspect the brake fluid is contaminated with a petroleum product. If it doesn't release, open the bleeder screw. If that lets it release, suspect the rubber flex hose is blocked.
