Question:

On my 2002 ford wind star the front driver side brake and rear passenger brake are getting really hot?

You can smell the brakes the other breaks are cold

Answer:

Vehicles typically have a dual diagonal braking system. So if something is stuck or dragging the left front or right rear brake, it can heat up and boil the brake fluid which can make both brakes drag and heat up. It could be a stuck parking brake, missing spring if you have drum brakes in the rear, or stuck caliper. Usually there is a sensor that senses if the 2 diagonal brake systems are not balanced, which should turn on a Brake warning light on the dash, unless the sensor or light are not working properly.

The slider pins are probable caught, subsequently why they are getting warm and not liberating. because of the fact the brakes basically push from the piston side, if the caliper pins arent lubed, it is going to easily push on that side. sometimes they pass and get caught and dont launch, sounds like it right here. Dont use WD-40. Use silicone grease. It wont dry up and mixes with although else has been put in there till now. Take a rat tail report and sparkling the interior the place the slider pins pass and rinse with brake kleen. Blow out and re-grease. be valuable to get all the rust off. try this each time you alter your brakes.
