Check for kinks in the brake line for the affected caliper... brakes only work when u apply them... driving 50 miles and won't matter it depends on how many times u press the peddle.. when u push the brake peddle brake fluid is moved from the master cylinder to the calipers , at high pressaure... when u release the peddle the calipers come back with almost no pressaure so if there is a restriction in the line the pressaure will be stuck at the caliper
