what would cause the brake pad to not go down after backing on 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

brake went down when starting car, has occurred three or 4 times when backing up

Asked by for the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Are you talking about the brake pedal? You asked about it not going down, then say it goes down?
yes I am talking about the brake pedal, the one near the gas pedal. It goes down when I first start the car and shift into reverse, the I take my foot off the pedal to back up it is when I step on the brake pedal agin to stop car from backing up that it will not go down. Seems after a few seconds if I try it again it will go down. Today I did not let car warm up much and it did it for the first time going forward
possibly vacuum to the brake booster issue; Have vacuum supply, check valve tested. Would seem the vacuum is not recovering quickly enough.
ok thanks for your help
