Have you checked the braking system? Could be the emergency brake is hanging up. After your next drive, try sprinkling water on the rotors and or rear drums. See if you get steam or rapid evaporation.

Its not the front or rear brakes already checked that

How about a compression test? Are you experiencing any oil consumption?

Xompression is fine and no oil consumption
