Got another question for all you Ranger/B4000 doctors
This truck is new to me so I'm still trying to figure it out (it's a 1999 Mazda B4000 with 100K on it -- got it a week ago). It snowed this morning, but quickly melted when the sun came out. It's about 45 degrees this afternoon. While going out for lunch I noticed, while traveling through a parking lot at slow speeds, that when I put on my brakes a few times they (the rear brakes) grabbed a little and even caused the tires to skid briefly a few times -- kind of like I was hitting the brakes a little. After awhile of moving around they seemed to warm up and applying the brakes was normal again.
But, later on, the truck did the same thing. I noticed, while holding the brake on while waiting in a drive-thru line, the brakes kind of did not want to release from the hold they were in when I let off the brake pedal. They did, but only after there was a muted "thunk" in the rear of the truck.
Everything was fine yesterday but it was warmer, too. What do you think is going on?
