I drove truck about 20 miles, parked it and let it run while in the store for bout 10 minutes when I came out to leave it felt like I was holding the brake on while driving it got worse as I increased throttle. I stopped and checked all fuses and they all seemed to be ok. Then I loosened one of the brake lines on the master cylinder and retightened this seemed to work to get me home a few blocks away. What would cause the brakes to do this?
