IT could be that your both front brake hoses are collapsed. You can't tell by looking at them. You will need an assistant to step on the brake and then release it while you open the bleeder and see if there is pressure in the system. If so it is either your hoses or the master cylinder

Why does the brakes drag on occasion?


Have changed the brake hoses? A weak or soft hose will collapse when you release the brakes. This will slow the caliper releasing.

check your pressure hose connected to the caliper,also check whether your brakes master cylinder is not faulty,abs sending unit ,or if you have changed the brake pads in front see whether the back metal side of the pad is fair face and not any curve or uneven surface,because had happened to me .

When using brakes it dives to the right


your problem is on the left side of the car. your brake caliper is not working properly on the left side. What I would do is replace the brake caliper and the rubber hose that attaches to the caliper. The reason I would replace the hose is because over the years they break down internally and the rubber inside gets soggy and prevents the caliper from releasing properly. Hope this helps leave a comment.

Occasionally after driving and stopping my right front brake caliper is slow to release,a few times it actually stayed applied and become extreamely hot. When this happen I opened the bleeder screw...


Replace the rubber brake hose on that side....they are prone to rotting on the inside and letting fluid pass through it ,but not letting it back out,causing caliper to stay hung up and making you believe caliper is sticking,and opening the bleeder lets off pressure for a little while...I have seen many unneeded calipers be replaced,and then problem is still there.Now I will almost always replace both hoses when doing a front caliper change....they get old too...Good luck..Lee

91 Buick Park Avenue front left caliper slow to release. Replaced caliper and have same problem. After running a few miles and jacking up front end the whell cannot be turned by hand on left side. Right...


The caliper is probably rusty inside, and is stucked. Take it apart and clean it. You may need new rubber seal as well. This will save you money over buying a new one.
