The brake proportioning valve may be sticking, but this is very uncommon. Did you lubricate the slider pins on the caliber or replace them if they are rusted or corroded? Check all contact points and clean them off throughly. Apply brake lube to all contact points.

What causes intermittent air movement sounds and burning smell on 2005 dodge grand caravan?

it is most likely the brake calipers sticking, as I recently had this problem on my 2007 dodge grand caravan. They did not do it all the time, but would stick out for a brief period of time after braking, thus causing the burning smell, and then shortly after retract far enough so that there was no longer cantact, and therefore, the burning smell then went away.

Why do the rear disc brakes stay locked up after you let off the pedal on a 1999 Chevy blazer s-10?

usually either the calipers have dirt in them and need to be replaced or the rubber lines leading to them have collapsed inside and need to be replaced.. really kills the gas mileage uh!! chevy has had problems with rear discs on these vehicles,70%of braking is on the front,30% on the rear. therefore the pistons get little use and stick. there are stainless sliders the calipers move on,you need to clean and lubricate them,this should stop the brakes from dragging. I have a 1999 Blazer and my rear brakes were grinding so I replaced the pads and rotors but had the same sticking problem. They dont offer a rebuild kit for my calipers so I had to replace the calipers also.
