You need to determine if it's the caliper hanging up or possibly a bad hose. Jack that wheel up, pump the pedal up hard, make sure that wheel is still grabbing, then crack the bleeder screw. If it still has pressure in it, and the wheel releases, you've probably got a hose going bad internally.

I'd go out and get a different caliper and hose and replace it. I had it happen on my Mercury and it cost me a total of 50 bucks to fix
