This is more common on the later cars that have the washer fluid reservior moutned over the brake linkage. It may be that you have corrosion on the pivots of the linkage and it is keeping the pedal from returning properly. Clean and lubricate the linkage, especially the pivots. It can be disassembled, but I don't recommend it unless you've done it before or want a big project getting it back together (its just a pain to access, not actually complex). HTH.

: On my '73 2002, I noticed that once the engine temperature has reached the "normal" operating level that my brake pedal does not spring back, and it usually does not come back until accelerate or pull the pedal back with my foot.
: Anyone have any suggestions on a "fix"? Thank you for your input.
