Question about 2002 Dodge Durango
Driving my son to Scouts, down a hill, brakes went to the floor and I ended up in the rear end of a large truck. Was told to buy a master cylindar and did, but on attempting to bleed the brakes, brake fluid was squirting out of a hole in a part no one seems to know what it is, so I can't get it replaced. Single-income family of 9...and we need to rely on my brother-in-law who's "fixed some cars before". Don't want to buy anymore unnecessary parts and I do like it when my car stops when it's supposed to.
The part is a metal rectangle with a long straight tube coming out of the top out of a threaded piece and there are a few of these in a line. Any ideas? I have a photo of it.
I sure appreciate any help with this.
I finally had a look at that picture... looking at that fitting it looks like it's not even tightened down... which would give you a pretty good leak from the brakes... i would suggest having the shop tighten that down and bleed the air from your brakes... is there even the slightest chance your brakes were tampered with as i've never seen one come undone like that.... or did you have brake work done recently ?

ANTI LOCK BRAKE SYSTEMS HAVE A MAIN CONTROL MODULE THAT SOUNDS LIKE WHAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING. IF IT HAS FAILED, YOU CAN EXPERIENCE WHAT YOU DESCRIBE, UNFORTUNATEKY IT IS AN EXPENSIVE PART TO REPLACE AND THERE SOMETIMES ARE SPECIAL PROCEDURES FOR BLEEDING THE BRAKES. this is not a solution , but thought iwould give you some input on what that part you described might be.
