brake caliper

Asked by Nov 03, 2014 at 05:24 PM about the 1997 Nissan Maxima GLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the front brakes as well as the front Calipers as I was told  Because whenever I drive the brake is harder than it is usually and I also have to push the accesellator to raise the speed of my car. When I do so I also smell tires like burning smell. Please advise ....What else should be done....
Thanks

You probably have a collapsed break line on one caliper , find out witch wheel is getting hot and change the line for that one caliper . the line runs from the frame to the caliper its metal on both ends and ruber in the middle . you can't tell its bad just by looking at it the rubber seperates inside it and the flow .
