sounds likeyou have air in the line. what you can do is bleed your brakes and while you are down there add some moly lube to the pad ends. if it still doesnt work you might have to look at the master cylinder.

On the front brake caliper, the bleeder screw is on the top of the caliper- that goes for the right or left side. It has a small black rubber cap on it to protect it from rust.

Replace the rubber brake hose on that side....they are prone to rotting on the inside and letting fluid pass through it ,but not letting it back out,causing caliper to stay hung up and making you believe caliper is sticking,and opening the bleeder lets off pressure for a little while...I have seen many unneeded calipers be replaced,and then problem is still there.Now I will almost always replace both hoses when doing a front caliper change....they get old too...Good luck..Lee
