Im trying to find out what happens when there is fluid in the brake lines.

What is happening...

When Im making a full stop, the car will jerk slightly right before I stop. It only does this when I brake slowly, not at a hard stop. It will only do it once, then I stop.

I don't have any problems on the freeway when braking. I had my rotors checked and they are not warped.

I think it might be air, but could I have sticking calipers? I have no other brake problems.

sounds like a sticky caliper piston/caliper guide to me.

Stop the car on a slight incline, pump the brakes a few times, put it in neutral and see if the car will roll at all.

No movement = sticky brakes.

It could also be a worn tie rod end or ball joint, possibly a bum steering rack, possibly a loose or worn strut mount/bushing.
