Hi, why do my brakes, front and rear tend to lock my wheels into a slide when it is cold outside?
#153 of 154 1997 GRand Cherokee Brake Failure
Aug 01, 2012 (11:29 am)
I had some issues with my brakes and replaced my mastercylinder which worked for a month now. Then today my brakes seemed fine then at a stop sign I just lost brakes. Almost hit another car. I pulled over, no leakage I could find, MC had fluid, so I decided to try and make it home. While driving brakes were fine. Soon as I was not moving I felt them start to slip and then Jeep started rolling forward. I bled the brakes of course when I replaced the MC and no issues until now. It is over 100 degrees today and my engine seems to be really hot, but gauge says 240 so it's not too hot. NOt sure if heat would do this. Maybe MC was faulty? If anyone has had a similiar issue please let me know. I live in the country and cannot do ANYTHING without my vehicle.

My wifes Jeep had the same issue.
1. slides on the calipers were corroded along with the brake pads, especially on the rear brakes. cleaned up the slides and replace the rear pads
2. flushed the hydraulic lines and put new fluid into the baking system. Brake fluid was very dirty. American car makers do not normally recommend replacing the fluid, but our Mercedes does. I took Mercedes lead and solved the problem
