    I replaced a rear brake line and bled the front brakes but the backplate on the diff side of the rear wheel doesnt have a bleed screw like every other vehicle i've owned, there must be something I'm missing

SOURCE: Dodge Ram 2500 engine ping

Your ignition timing may have advanced too far. Or it is now where it should be and is making more cylinder pressure during combustion causing the gasoline to ignite to early causing detonation or ping.

Make sure the ignition timing is correct. If it is try better fuel meaning the octane rating.

If you can go up to the next octane level. For example if you are using 87 go to 89 and see if it goes away. 3 of my wife's last cars a 1986 Honda Prelude, 2000 Neon, and a 2003 Neon had some ping under medium to hard acceleration. She switched to 89 octane and the ping went away completely in each vehicle. Each of the vehicle had a good deal of miles on them.

The 2003 Neon has 75000 miles on it now and runs great on 89 octane. About a year ago I tried 87 Octane in her car and the ping came right back.

SOURCE: replace rear leaf springs in a dodge ram 2500 '96

Hi,
If you are planning to do this via shade tree like mysef, I have used a hydraulic floor jack on one end of the leaf spring touse the weight of the truck to depress the spring enough to pull the spring bolt out. It's a bit tricky... be very cautious if you do this.

SOURCE: small leak from rear diff.

if the leak is from the rear portion of the diff, often it can be cured by removing the cover, cleaning the mating surfaces, resealing and reinstalling. if the cover seems to have excessive corrosion inside, replace it. they are relatively inexpensive and available at almost any parts store, but original dodge ones from the dealer fit the best.

if the leak is from the front portion of the diff (front seal), this requires a some work beyond the scope of most home mechanics, but is not usually a very expensive job. good luck!

Where are back bleeder screws on chevy truck?


If you mean for the rear brakes, and you have drum brakes on the rear, the bleed valves are on the back side of the wheels. Look for where the brake line goes to the wheel brake cylinders, and on top of the small brake cylinder is the bleed valve.

Bleeding brake system in a 1999 dodge 2500 4x4 with cummin


Hi there:
When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or replacement, air may get into the lines and cause spongy pedal action (because air can be compressed and brake fluid cannot). To correct this condition, it is necessary to bleed the hydraulic system so to be sure all air is purged.

Bleeding must start where the lines were disconnected. If lines were disconnected at the master cylinder, for example, bleeding must be done at that point before proceeding downstream.

Manual Bleeding:
Manual bleeding requires two people and a degree of patience and cooperation.
Follow the preparatory steps, above.
Attach a length of rubber hose over the bleeder screw and place the other end of the hose in a glass jar, submerged in brake fluid.
Have your assistant press down on the brake pedal, then open the bleeder screw 1 / 2 - 3 / 4 turn.
The brake pedal will go to the floor.
Close the bleeder screw-preferably before the pedal reaches the floor. Tell your assistant to allow the brake pedal to return slowly.
Repeat these steps to purge all air from the system.
When bubbles cease to appear at the end of the bleeder hose, close the bleeder screw and remove the hose. Check that the pedal is firm or at least firmer than it was when you started. If not, continue the procedure.
Check the master cylinder fluid level and add fluid accordingly. Do this after bleeding each wheel.
Repeat the bleeding operation at the remaining three wheels, ending with the one closet to the master cylinder.
Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.

NOTE
If there is excessive air in the system, it is possible that the stroke of the brake pedal will be insufficient to purge the lines. In this case a pressure bleeder or vacuum bleeder is the easiest solution.
Vacuum Bleeding:
Vacuum bleeding can be carried out by one person. Since a good vacuum bleeder will normally move more fluid than a brake pedal stroke, this procedure is preferred. These tools are inexpensive and readily available at auto parts outlets.
Follow the preparatory steps, above.
Attach the vacuum bleeder according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
Pump up the unit until maximum vacuum is reached. Loosen the bleeder screw slightly until bubbles and fluid issue forth. Close the screw before the vacuum is equalized.
Repeat the procedure until fluid without bubbles issues from the bleeder screw.
Keep a close check on master cylinder fluid level during this procedure as vacuum bleeders move considerable amounts of fluid.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

99 Dodge Ram 1500 2x4 rear brakes not working, shoes are like new only 60,000 miles on truck. front brakes appear to be the only ones working.


Try bleeding the lines. Put a 2 foot long vacuum hose on the bleeder screw, and submerse the other end in a bottle of brake fluid. Loosen the bleeder screw, and pump brakes until there are no more bubbles coming out of the hose. Tighten screw. Make sure the reservoir is full at all times. Adjust brakes if necessary.
