That is correct. Fill up master cylinder with brake fluid leave cap off and gravity all brakes make sure master cylinder stays full. After you have good fluid dripping from all wheels. Have a helper pump pedal and hold it as you bleed each wheel. You should have a great brake pedal after that.

Start from the farthest, right rear, left rear, right front, then left front, take some time in bleeding your left front since it has more air induced during line replacement. good luck!

Need to change the front drivers side brake line


I assume you have found a visual leak in the line or connection...Be sure to thoroughly soak both end connections with PB Blaster before tryting to loosen. You should purchase the replacement line fitting from your parts store to compare they are the same...(May be a dealer only part) This line connects to the brake caliper, and the frame. Unfortunately, you will need to bleed all brake lines after the switch out...Be sure to start with the right rear, then left rear, then right front...and finally the left front. You will need to refill the brake reservoir after the fluid bleed. Hope this helps.

My brakes are going to the floor


Hi, the likely cause is a leak that has used all the fluid in the reservoir and drawn air into the system. You will need to find the leak, repair it, and then bleed the whole system of air. Likely places for the leak are at the back of the master cylinder or at any of the 4 wheels. It is possible to draw air without a leak if your front brakes are extremely worn. If this is the case, replace the front brake pads and bleed only the front wheels. Please let me know if you have questions or need instructions, and thanks for using FixYa.

All of a sudden i have spongy brakes on my 92 f 250. changed master cyl and booster. and rubber brake hoses. still spongy and nothing is leaking.brakes went from being good to spongy in one...


Check the rear wheel cylinders? Was anything leaking at the master cylinder? Does it have ABS?
Check the front caliper slides are free. Check the front caliper pistons for leaks as well. This is all assuming you bled the brakes(all 4 wheels) properly after all that replacement! You're getting air from somewhere for sure or if it has ABS, the pump may have a problem.

I replaced my front brake router and brake pads today. when i bleed the front left brake, a line which im assuming is a brake line near the rear left tire burst and is leaking brake fluid. when u tried...


First, there is NO Pumping of the brake pedal
involved in bleeding brakes

I think your smart enough to know you
need to replace both rear brake hoses,
before you proceed with the bleeding

My brakes will not get hard. The pedal goes to the floor. I just changed rear caliper and rotor on the drivers side.


DId you bleed the system after you changed the caliper? If the Master cylinder lost it's fluid while you were changing the caliper, then there is air in the system and you need to bleed the entire system. start with the REAR RIGHT, then the REAR LEFT and then the FRONT RIGHT and last the FRONT LEFT. make sure the master cylinder NEVER runs low on fluid and DO NOT re-use any fluid that you get out of the calipers.

Have rusty, coroded brake lines. need to replace. they are leaking. do i have to get brake lines specifically for the model or is there lines that can be fabricated from like a roll of line?


A brake specialist should be able to make up new lines from a roll and fit them for you which should be cheaper than trying to order the original parts frpm Dodge which are now probably no longer available.
Another option could be to source the lines from an auto salvage / wrecking yard that specialises in Dodge vehicles. .

Leaking front drivers side brake line


Have some one step on brake while you watch for the leak. The fittings for the extention may not be the same as the OE line causing a leak.

Leaking brake line(drivers side)


The hose is only maybe 15- 20 bucks depending on if its a 2wd or 4wd. I don't know what a brake shop will charge. They will just have to bleed all brakes and replace 1 line. a 4 wheel brake bleed is usually around 40 - 50 bucks, plus the labor to change the hose. This happens when stupid retarded brake guys change the pads and let your calipers hang by the hose. Thats the most common reason. However if one side is cracking bad and leaking, then it would be best to replace both sides and check the rear distribution block hose.
