1995 Pontiac Grand Prix Question: Sticky brake pedel

 

Question

Visitor, 3.1L V6, Des Moines, IA, November 22, 2010, 09:01

1995 Pontiac GP(SE) with 3100 engine. Brake pedel frequently (but not aways) "sticks" at the top of its travel position. By applying firm pressure the "sticking" releases the pedel and brakes can be applied normally. Doesn't seem to happen with car not moving (engine running).Does the car have a "proportioning valve" or does the ABS system take care of that aspect of the braking? Again, does not happn all the time but frequently enough to be disconcerting.

    ABS should take care of that did you recently have the brakes change? If so make sure there is air in the lines, possibly the brake booster could be sticking, or easier fix have you checked the brake cyclinder, looking for grease build up on the back brakes?
