Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

Squeaky brakes Everything dealing with the front brakes have been changed at least 2 times. I know a thin layer of rust will build up after it sets for a awhile. But, I work at night and in the morning going home they sound like the whole truck is coming apart. After 2 or 3 stops they calm down to just a very loud squawl. A professonial mechnic is doing the work and has never seen or heard anything like it. I had him install the very best of everything.

You might try pulling them off and cleaning all the parts with Brakeclean, and pull your pads and put brake lube between every moving part/surface of the brakes, except for between the pads and rotor which you should clean very thourouly with brakeclean.

2005 toyota corolla squeaky front brakes when braking at 10mph. changed brakes, rotors, controll arm, pad. What else noise is till there?


anti rattle plates are damaged, remove pads clean rear surface apply thin layer of silicon to pad allowing it to dry then reinstall as per std, this will stop the squeak, or replace anti rattles, silicon is cheaper will last the life of pad, but all new pads will have to be treated the in the same manner .

Removing the front rotors on my k3500 chevy truck


if you took the tire, brake caliper and everything off and you are replacing the rotors then spray some wd-40 or pb blaster around the lug nut bolts and the center and let it set and work into it. if you cant wiggle it off then take a regular hammer and smack the back of the rotor. sometimes the rust and brake dust will build up and cause it to stick.

Front brake caliper on brivers side omn a 99 caravan keep locking up and smoking. i went through 3 calipers


Chances are the calipers are not at fault.You probably live in a northern state that puts salt on the roads in the winter time. Take a close look at the brake shoes. and where they mount. Often the manufacturer will put a thin metal plate over a caste iron iron caliper/brake pad mount. This is to give the brake pads a smooth surface to slide on. Take the the thin metal plates off of the bracket and file off the rust under neath the plates. The rust is expanding and pushing against the back of the thin plates causing the brake pads to bind and stick. This is then overheating the caliper and ruining it. Take a file and remove all the rust on the mounting brackets especially under the the brake pad slide plates. Once the brake pads move freely again the problem should go away.

Front passenger brakes make a squeaky noise when driving. Brakes have been replaced recently.


When a rotor is brand new they are coated with oil.....to keep from rusting...if you don't clean them before installing them it can lead to brake fade,glazing and or squeaking...you may have a caliper seizing up keep the brakes lightly applied good luck

2000 GMC Safari anti-lock brakes


There was actually a recall for this. Go to your local GMdealer and have them check your VIN for a recall. If not under recall get out of there its easy to repair yourself don't let'em fool you.Remove the front pads caliper and rotors. Locate the abs sensor mounted to the wheelbearing assembly by a small socket head cap screw (Allen wrench). Removethe bolt and softly gently/wiggle the abs sensor around until it pops upout of the hole. some will break, which is why it wouldbe nice if the recall applies to your vehicle that way if they break gm replaces. Once you get both sides removed, clean themounting surface of all rust or build up with w-d 40 and small steel toothbrush then wipe off excess with clean rag and mild soap and warm water, dry completely make sure no spray residue exist on parts, Next apply a thin layer of lubricant grease to preventfuture rusting and reassemble.The rust build up under the sensor is causing the angle to change resultingin inaccurate wheel speed readings in the abs module your abs module will interprets this asa wheel is either slipping or skidding and applies your abs. This should make you happy with no more irritations. Please rate me. If you need further assistance you can always ask me. Good luck with this.

Front brakes are not releasing


okay did you pressure test your brakes??? jack up front have some one press pedal try to turn wheel then when pedal is released tire should turn if not wait 1-2 minutes then try to turn the wheel with no body pressing the pedal and if it does turn then I would be replacing flex hose!!! fact: if caliper is seized it will not turn !these flex hoses build rust under the steel fastener bracket that is moulded around the hose then slowly over times closes it off as rust builds and slowly closes it off to a pin hole passage i have changed thousands of these over the years! yours will probably be the same! brake fluid has no problem making it to the caliper and bleeder it is when you release the brake the applied pressure is gone and now it take a couple of minute or seconds to slowly return!!!!! I know this will help!!!!
