Exclamation Testing a front caliper

I just picked up a 99' Taurus and I'm having a brake issue. I bleed the brakes and still have the front right brake grabbing for a second then letting go. Is this the caliper or the ABS? There is no leaks in the lines that I see. No fluid on the ground or on frame. Any other suggestions. Thx

Re: Testing a front caliper

You could try cleaning and lubing the slides on the caliper.

I checked the slides and they were fine. I changed the caliper and that did the trick. No problems now. Thanks everyone who read this. Pass what I learned onto others.
