Replace all the rubber brake hoses and flush the entire system. Rubber hoses break down internally so you can't see them go bad. Brake absorbs moisture right out of the air, this moisture can turn to steam when the brakes are used that pressure applies the brakes, hen when the steam cools back to moisture the rakes release only to do it all over again.
