hi check all your brake linnings for contamination especially brake fluid on the linnings if this is ok you have a build up of pressure if its possible for you drive till the brakes start to lock up get out go to each wheel see if any of them is getting hot if so the problem is on that wheel jack it up to see if the wheel is locking if its red hot it will be sticking then try the rest of the wheels one at a time jack them up see if its one wheel or all if its one wheel release the bleed nut on that wheel see if it releases if it does it must be fitted with a pressure regulator to that wheel replace it . now if its all wheels its more likely to be the brake master cylinder or if fitted pressure regulator that supplies all the wheels a long shot i cannot see but better to mention it the brake pedal is not sticking and holding down yates210456

Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

hi from the uk have had this problem on a customers car b4 who had replaced frot calipers and pads and pedal went to floor on inspection of caliper i found that the steel spring clip that fits into two holes in the front face of caliper and must also locate behind the caliper carrierbehind two lugs was fitted incorrectly it had been fitted behind the outer pad resulting in when brake pedal off ?the caliper being floating type as it is known because it is fixed by two screw pins/bolts and moves on these pins/bolts as pads wear ? what happens is the spring fitted wrongly ? actually pushes against the outer pad and as a result the caliper piston is pushed back into its cylinder slightly as it moves on the locating pins/bolts resulting in pedal going to floor on 1st application but if pumped ? some brake pedal force is felt but is lost again when pedal released ? so try this ? remove the steel clips from both front calipers that retain caliper to carriers then press brake/pump pedal ? if as suggested above works? your pedal should pump up and remain ok when you release and still be firm when re applied ? all above is what i found on ford ford but many other models use similar calipers and spring locating recheck how this spring should locate hope this helps ? good luck
