brake problems, what the hell

i replaced all the brake parts on the front of my truck recently, calipers ,brackets ,rotors , pads , and hoses. drove 2 days and my pass. side caliper started sticking. so i replaced it with another new (reman) one. worked for a day and now stick again. to the point it locks up. if i crack the bleeder it releases. it happens on and off. if i had hair, i would be pullin it out. any ideas? 03 f250 ccsb 4x4, 7.3

yeah, that's what originally got me to change my brakes, they were all rusted. but theyre all new now. nice and greasy. and, when i release the pressure from the bleeder, they slide right back.

Might be a bad brake hose inner walls collapse and act like a one way valve.

He replaced the hoses.

OP, your master cylinder is indeed bad. The spool valve inside isn't shifting all the way to bleed off pressure.

The route you went to troubleshoot was correct. The MC usually doesn't go bad. I went through the same thing and then some more. Took a year and a half because the root issue wouldn't repeat itself everyday. You can get new MC's at autozone for $70. I rarely buy anything but oil there but they at least have new ones. When you bench bleed it, make sure the plunger pushes back hard and quick. There was another member I helped out, same situation, and the MC was slow. The bore wasn't machined right and had a new bad one out of the box.

You wouldn't think so, but it does.
