Brakes Sticking? Problem with slow pedal return.

Hey guys,

My Wheels have been having alot of break dust on them. Way more than normal. The pedal drops a little when truck starts. I had the Brake Booster and Master cylinder replaced. The power steering pump is new also. Could the ABS be screwing up or calipers. I have to lift up on the pedal to get ight off. I thought a new brake booster, master cylinder, and steering pump would fix it. Im stumped, any ideas? Any simalr problems?

My guess is that there air in the lines. Sorry I couldn't be more help, but here's a bump for you.

Look for a crimp brake line. Check all of your lines!

There are a few return springs in the system. I think there is one on the pedal and for sure there is one in the master cylinder. I've seen some rebuilt master cylinders come in with pretty tight seals that don't allow the piston to properly return. Problems with the brake hydraulic system itself wouldn't cause the pedal to not return, so the lines wouldn't matter. On the hydraboost side of things air in the lines, or if the accumulator doesn't get bled out all the way that could cause what you're seeing. Brake dust on the 06's is pretty common especially on the fronts.

How long have you driven it this way? If the ABS was screwing up there'd be a light, it has pretty good internal diagnostics to detect faults.

if you were suspecting that the MC was sticking the best way to check it would be to remove the pin between the brake pedal and MC actuator rod. Push the pedal back down and pull it up and away. If you see that the piston/rod assembly doesn't return all the way to the top then you have some problem with the booster/master cylinder assembly that is causing it to stick. If you get that far and you see it is sticking then the next course of action would be to remove the master cylinder from the booster and try stroking it manually while it is disconnected. If it doesn't hang, then they problem is likely in the booster or in a misalignment between the MC and booster. If it still sticks, well then you need another new MC.

I've had problems with my 06 in a slow brake pedal return, almost like the return spring (if there is one) on the brake pedal isn't strong enuff.Really noticable when pulling a trailer, trailer brakes dont let off for up to 3 seconds, specially when the weather is cold. I get alot of brake dust on my front wheels also. Figured this is normal. I've seen it on other pickups also.

BTW, this is my first post, joined yesterday!!

From 03-05 they used one pad material, but starting in 06, to get better stopping distances, they changed pads to a different material that makes TONS of dust so that part is normal. If you are having problems with slow return or sticking components the first step should be to totally flush out the fluid in the brake system (should be done every 2 years MAX anyway) and if you can't remember the last time it was done its time to do it.
