Default Dragging Brakes

I just changed the brake pads on my 92 Accord LX but I'm having a problem with them dragging. Everything is fine for the first few miles after I take them off and put them back on, but then the brake goes soft, I lose breaking power (I can't skid if I slam on the brake), and when I stop I can smell the brakes and the lug nuts are very hot to the touch. At first I had too much brake fluid in the reservoir (too much was pushed back in when I compressed the piston on the caliper), but now it is under the full line and the same thing happened after reinstalling the pads again.
Anyone have a suggestion? Help is appreciated.


I finally figured out that I have 2 different kinds of calipers on the car that take 2 different sizes of pads. I bought a second pair the right size and it worked.
