You most likely have a problem w/ the brake fluid being contaminated. Have u ever had the brake fluid changed? Everytime u need brakes, u should bleed the brakes to remove the old fluid. This is something most people DO NOT do, and the old fluid ruins the calipers and brake cylinders. Look in the master cylinder at the fluid. Is it dark, or clear? When the fluid goes bad, it'll not be clear. Fluid also absorbs moisture which is terrible for the brake system. Make sure any bottles of brake fluid are closed tightly after opening. Moisture and contaminants will corrode the inside of the calipers and brake cylinders, and the pistons stick and bind, and will finally totally seize up. Flush the system starting at the bleeder that's the greatest distance away from the master cylinder, then next greatest distance, 3rd greatest, then closest. Bleed each wheel until fluid runs out clear, and then a few more times to be sure u flushed it all out. Check the master cylinder often, so u don't run it so low it draws in air, or u will have more bleeding to do to get the air out too. U might be able to dissassemble the caliper if it's very recently changed, clean it up, check for any crud and coat w/ clean fluid, reassemble. Good Luck, let me know how u make out. countrycurt0
