Expert:  tims auto repair replied 1 year ago.
you sure it is all 4?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes it feels like all four get stuck, it seemed all wheels were smoking and the brake pedal gets rock solid until they release on there own.

ok..the common thing that will cause this is the rubber brake hoses that connect to the calipers,,they may have debries in the lines or the will just colapse on the inside and work like a check valve not letting the fluid to return back to the resivoir quickly,...i would think you will need to replace the rubber brake hosesthanksIf you are satisfied with my answer, Please Rate my answer by clicking the rating button so I can get credit for my work.
