91 Acura , Integra GS. Probably the most popular model on this group,
thanks mainly to Tegger.
The car has no visible rust and less than 100 k miles but I am
seriously thinking of putting it to rest.
The other day, after about 5 miles on the highway , I smelled the
typical odor of brakes over heating. The 2 front disk assemblies
could not be touched. Very hot
I removed one front wheel and found that the pads are touching but
the disk was easy to turn.
a) If the pistons don't go back due to rust, why does the problem
appears on the 2 front wheels at the same time, coincidence?
b) Admitting the possibility that air would expand when hot and move
the pistons closer to the disks.I have tried to open the bleeder but I
was afraid to brake the nipple. It was frozen.
c) A common element to the 2 sides is the ABS, the master cylinder and
the hand brake if it operates the front wheels.
Except for the Air Condition the car runs well but also needs tires
and in Quebec one must buy 8 ( Winter and Summer tires) .
I am prepared to spend no more than about $300 .
During my 80 years of existence and more than a dozen cars, this one
was by far the most reliable one.
Thanks for the help
