94 explorer brakes overheating

Hi there
The front brakes on my 94 Explorer keep overheating. When I first discovered the problem, they were smoking so badly on the driver's side that the guy at the parts place I pulled
in to came out wityh a fire extiguisher I thought I'd lost the bearings, but they were fine. I replaced the pads calipers AND brake lines... It is better now, but still heats up quite a bit. If it is a hot day it is even worse.... Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

I think there is also a residual pressure valve in the master cylinder. Perhaps it's not releasing as it should and effectively keeping your brakes applied. It's also remotely possible your brake booster got out of adjustment and is always lightly applying the brakes. -- Elbridge Gerry, of Massachusetts:

Is there a remedy for the problems you suggested? My Taurus sometime exhibits similar symptoms.

Remedy for the Master Cylinder issue is to just go buy a rebuilt one and replace it. For the booster adjustment, basically the rod from the brake pedal into the booster should have a tiny amount of "slack" when the brakes aren't applied. It would be a long shot if that was the problem but it's possible. It's pretty hard for them to get out of adjustment unless someone has monkeyed with it.
