Hello there
for start you should check your brake pads.If they are low it will be good to replace them.
Also check your rotors if they are not worn out .The reason would be if you would replace your br.pads they will not last you to long with bad rotors.
In your case if the brakes are sticking find out which side.I will recomend to bleed the system a see.
Of course the best would be to rebuild the calibers.The brakes are sticking most likely because
the pistons in calibers have some dirt or little rust on them or your dust protectors are broken or have some cuts.
You can also try to lube the pistons in calibers with(if you have )little needle and with someone help (remove one brake pads at a time only),pump the pistons out a little at a time and spray some clean brake fluid behind the dust covers..

My niece has a 1998 Mazda Protege with brake issues. When you step on the brake pedal if feels as the anti-lock brakes are kicking in. The brakes pedal pulses. Any ideas?

What you have sounds like warped rotors. They will cause a pulse or vibration in the brake pedal. This can be caused by:

1. Rotors worn too thin.
2. Riding the brakes and/or constant hard braking
3. Sticking calipers (usually also have a pull to left or right)
4. Worn or out of adjustment rear brakes causing excessive load on front brakes.

Brakes used to stick somehow. by stick i mean that after you come to a complete stop and then u let off on the brake and start to accelerate it doesnt move for a second or two and then you hear a pop noise...

If they are shoe brkes then you can buy a kit to repair the brake cylinder. If they are disc then you need to clean and maybe replace the calipers

your rear hub seals are leaking, which leak grease/hub fluid in to the drums which will make them stick.

Brake problems

Hello.Find out what side is applying.You can check this by lifting the front of the vehicle,then having someone apply the brakes.When the pedal is released,both wheels should instantly release.If one wheel wont turn after the brakes are relesased,that is the problem side.If the caliper is not frozen,then it will probably be the rubber brake hose that connects the caliper to the steal brake line.

Did you try changing front brake flex pipes, sometimes depending on age of vehicle the pipes can collapse from the inside when brakes are pressed on the pressure is forced down but there is no force to release pressure when let off sometimes causing the calipers to stick on. Assuming that both calipers are new and not second hand I would try replacing flex pipes.
