Saturn vue caliper problems. Both old and new caliper on left front of my 2004 saturn vue are sticking when temp outside is hotter then 80 degrees. Does not happen on cooler days and rt side caliper is fine. Put new pads rotors and brake lines on. Abs and master checked ok. Help! Any thoughts, its costing me a fortune !
thanks

Next time it locks up, open the bleeder screw. If it doesn't release, the new caliper has a problem. Next, crack open the steel line at the master cylinder. If it releases there, suspect the brake fluid is contaminated with petroleum product.
