have changed front rotor and calibers on front and now brakes are sticking and getting real hot whats the problem on my 1996 ford taurus,,,,,help

I have replaced rotors and pads on my wife's '99 Taurus Wagon and seem to have a problem with the outer pad on the driver side. Once the car gets up to about 25 mph the pad starts to whine. At first I had the metallic pad in there with a metal shim, it makes a horrible sound. I replaced it with a ceramic pad with a nitrile rubber coated shim, the noise is less but is still there. I have taken the brake assembly off several times and checked the pads, slides, springs, everything seems to look good but i just can't get away from that darn whining. I have the same setup in my '98 Taurus and have no problems there at all ......... any suggestions?

Does anyone know how to disconnect the old parking brake release plastic housing from the dash? The new one looks like it is held in with a clip but you can hardly see it behind the dash much less get a pair of needle nose in there.

#20 of 22 Pulsating Brakes in 2000 Sable
Oct 26, 2010 (1:26 pm)
I have a 2000 Sable station wagon. When I apply the brakes, the 1st few times in the morning, the pedal pulsates a few time & then I hear an electric motor going. After a few times of doing this, it goes away. We've replaced the pads on the rear & put a new caliper on. The front pads were replaced in Feb. Does anyone have anyone idea what it is or what's causing it?

I have a 2008 Taurus.
A while back I noticed that the brakes were a little "soft"....it had been about 2 years since last brake job, so I assumed that was the issue.
I replaced the pads and rotors.....still had the same feel.
I had my mechanic check it out.....he clamped the brake lines going to the calipers and said it held pressure....but when any one was unclamped, the brakes went soft.
Note...NO leaking fluid.
Mechanic said that ruled out the master cylinder, and told me I needed all new calipers.
I replaced all of the calipers....NO CHANGE.
When the vehicle is not running, the pedal stays firm....once the vehicle starts, the pedal will depress easy....and stop the car. If I continue to press the pedal, it will continue to depress, and eventually stop near the floor....
The brakes have been properly bled until no air-bubbles.....note the fluid is a bit darker, a light brown in color.....
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated....trying to do this myself, but I may be in too deep.
