    Yes, check your rubber brake lines, they may be old and clogged and not releasing the fluid. And file a complaint with the State govt consumer division about the shop that 'guessed wrong'.

    rubber brake line was replaced, and mechanic tested car, same exact thing, drove around te block, and right front brake locked-up again. The mechanic is stuck, I am broke, and my wife is without her car... I am desperate to resolve this.
