Your jake brakes are probably sticking. Probably a broken spring for the slave piston. See if it does it on low or medium and that'll at least tell you where to look. Low is the middle head. Medium is the first and third head and high is all three. Hope this helps.

Yes, that's true. the last time I was in there I noticed that the spring wasn't broke on#1 but that spring was stuck to that little piston. don't know if its still like that ill open it up and check that out.
