Hey mechanically-minded people! If anyone has any suggestions to help solve this problem, it’s greatly appreciated.
We have a 2002 Chevy Blazer. Just recently the brakes started locking on us. Since we just had our brakes replaced a month ago, I took the truck back in today to talk to the mechanic about it.
He’s stumped. Of course the truck wasn’t cooperating to demonstrate the problem so they took a look at the brake pads and didn’t find anything other than hot spots.
His suggestions were:
[li]The master cylinder[/li][li]The anti-lock brake system [/li][li]The wolverines in the trunk. (Well, not really but two items doesn’t seem like much of a list.)[/li][/ul]
He feels that replacing the master cylinder would be the best place to start but at $200 I wanted to check here and see if there are any other avenues we should pursue before we open the wallet.
