brake problem

1993 gran marquis prroblem . the brakes are sticking on the front . it seems if you lightly apply brakes they slowly increase pressure until they will actually not release . if you press hard they will do this faster .. the brake light will come on after you apply brakes a couple of times .. if you let car sit for a while brakes will release . any ideas

Re: brake problem

Possible brake hoses collapsed inside. Get them to stick and open the bleeder. If fluid comes out and the brakes release, the hoses are more than likely blocked. Is there freeplay in the brake pedal?

Re: brake problem

i agree with the collapsed brake lines.. the part where the rubber hoses that connect to the caliper... i would start there and could also be the calipers depending on if the car sat for a time causing the pistons in the caliper to stick

Re: brake problem

i have bought the box body Crown Victorias and Grand Marquis cars for cheap from people... sometimes they idnt run and i only paid $250 each... lotsa times i had to change fuel pumps to make them run and these cars sat for 3-5 years... i had issue with them also because of the calipers seizing up... like i said, try hoses then get the calipers or do the calipers and hoses to eliminate the issue all together
