Hello I was just wondering if you could tell me what I wrong with my 1982 sigma. The front left wheel brake overheats whenever we go for a drive and stick on sometimes. Would it just be needing bleeding or something else. I would really appreciat the help.

Do you

Sound's like the caliper piston is sticking or the slider pin's are freezing up. You will have to see if the piston compresses freely and see if there is any rust on the slider pins stopping the caliper from sliding freely.
