Brakes problem
1997 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

I replaced my
rear brake pads and replaced a rotor. The side where the rotor was replaced, when driving down the road, I hear a humming and smell heat. I get back and take the tire off, I step on the brake peddle, the pads grab, but will not release. I did not know how to bleed the lines of brake fluid. I want to know why the pads wont release. Can you help me?

When your rear wheel is stuck, open the bleeder screw. If your wheel does not immediately release your caliper is no good. If it does release your brake hose is collapsed inside and will need to be replaced. Let us know what it is. Thanks
