2007 brakes not releasing

My daughter has a 2007 mustang convertible V6. I replaced the rear calipers rotors and pads. I also replaced the power booster, front calipers rotors and pads. The problem she is having is after driving for a while the brakes do not release and all four wheels get very hot. the only thing I haven't replaced is the master cylinder. We brought it to a repair shop and they don't know what is wrong. Any help would be appreciated

What was the original issue with the brakes? Why change all for rotors and calipers? I ask because I'm leaning towards the master cylinder being the culprit, but a little more info would be nice before I tell you to jump in and spend more money. How do the brakes feel cold? nice solid peddle?, mushy?. Do you have to be careful when you step on them, do they lock up? Do you have ABS?

Answer a few of these and I think you'll start seeing your problem. If not me, and others I'm sure, would be willing to help.

When the car is cold. the brakes work correctly, but the longer you drive it the worse it gets. It does have ABS. I started by replacing the front rotors and pads. My daughter told me too late about the brakes making noise. Then about a month latter the rear calipers and rotors because they did not function, frozen. I replaced the booster because it had a vacuum leak. After I replaced the booster, that's when the brakes started not releasing. It appeared to be just the front that would not release. I talked to several people and the majority said the front calipers. After I did the front calipers I also checked to make sure the master cylinder was installed correctly.

Thanks for the message. I will try what you suggested. However I have to wait for my daughter to bring the car to my house. As soon as she does I will let you know. Thank you for all your input.

Did you make sure to line up the little notch on the back of the pads? I had the same issue after a pad change, i did not buy the little circle tool to turn the caliper to the right spot and let the notch in.

Here is my original post:
