I had the same thing happen in my 1998 Plymouth Neon and after talking to some other users, I have come to the conclusion that it can be considered normal in Neon cars. It seems to happen to everyone owning a Neon.

04 alero front brakes get hot why?

This could be for a few reasons, but if they are getting hot without you applying them, I would suggest that they are sticking and causing the pads to rub on the discs, or if they are drum brakes, the shoes on the drums. If they are only getting hot as a result of using the brakes, I would suggest checking that the brakes are balanced properly, and that the front brakes are not doing all of the work/ or that the back brakes are working at all.

Your Honda CRV 2001 sometimes stalls out at a stop sign when the brakes are applied what could be wrong and potential fixes Thanks for any help?

Engine stalling when applying brakes is usually indicative of a leaky brake booster. The brake booster uses and stores engine vacuum while driving to assist your braking effort (power brakes). When the booster's air diaphragm is leaking air, applying brakes causes a substantial vacuum leak in the intake manifold, causing the engine to stall.
