    I have a 2001 Chevy S-10. My front brakes keep locking up on me. I have changed the Master cylinder and the wheel speed sensor which made the ABS light go out. After it sits for about an hour the brakes release and I can go again. I unplugged all the power to the ABS block because I was told that it may need an ABS block but if I unplug it and it still happens then that is not the problem. I did that. Still locked up on me. Any suggestions?

    Yup. These guys speak the truth! Collapsed brake hose acting like a check valve.

    Ginger if you want before you go to dropping money in your truck let us know what's going on I'm 100% sure we can all help many members here have helped me and saved me tons of coins another thing it's time to replace your brake lines.

    Consider replacing ALL your water hoses and thermostat and I bought my radiator from from seller on eBay I really like my radiator because the tanks are aluminum and it's much bigger than what came on my truck which I have been putting it though the test in this HOT Texas heat.
