THE BRAKES WORK GREAT UNTIL I ALMOST COME TO A COMPLETE STOP THEN THE BRAKE PEDEL PUSHES BACK UP AND MAKES A GROANING NOSE AND I HAVE TO PUSH EXTREMELY HARD ON THE PEDAL TO GET IT MOVE BACK DOWN TO STOP. HOW THIS ONLY DOES THIS WHEN IM GOING VERY SLOW AND NEED TO STOP AND IT DOESNT DO IT AL THE TIME, BUT I CAN PLAY WITH IT IN MY DRIVE WAY AND CAN MAKE MY PEDEL HANG UP ALMOST EVERYTIME.A CHEVY MECHANIC TOLD ME TO CHANGE THE MASTER CYLINDER BUT THAT WAS FUTILE. IM THINKING SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE ABS. THANKS FOR THE HELP

Check the ABS sensors. Chances are they are dirty, have oil on them and the sensor thinks the stator has stopped. As a result, it turns on the abs.

Let me know what you find.
