Have a 1994 Ford Escort wagon 1.9 L 4 cyl with 101,826 miles and just took it to local mechanic because the brakes were squealing a lot and after sitting overnight my first use of the brakes they would grab somewhat. And with some driving the noise would quit. The shop said pads and rotors ok, blew out brake dust and replaced a brake line. It's still doing the same thing. Appreciate any advice or input.

Is it the front or rear brakes that are grabbing? Any recent brake work done prior to the issue?

The front brakes were redone maybe 4-5k ago but the car wasn't used for several months this past year.

Does this have drums in the rear?

Finally got it diagnosed correctly. The parking brake was seized.

To those who responded, thanks for your time
