Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

1 Answer

I HAVE A PART WHERE THE BRAKE LINES CONNECT TO FROM THE MASTER CYLIDER. FROM THERE IT EITHER GOES TO THE FRONT OR THE BACK BRAKES. I AM WONDERING WHAT THIS PART IS AND IF THIS WILL AFFECT THE WAY THE TRUCK STOPS. I AM THINKING IT IS SOME KIND OF RELAY FOR THE BRAKING SYSTEM BUT I DONT KNOW WHAT IT DOES OR WHAT IT IS CALLED.

If it is fitted with abs it will be the abs unit this controls the amount of fluid sent to each brake to stop the truck from skidding or locking up

Brake lines to master cylinder


What model master cylinder have you installed?

Replaced rusted brake lines but did not replace valve in rear lines will this cause brake fade in 1995 bonneville


BY brake fade away I take it that you mean the pedal goes to the floor after you taken your foot off the brakes. . The valve you left out is a compensator valve that proportions the pressure between front and back to stop rear brake lock up and side skidding. I think the problem is in the master cyl in that the nonreturn valve under the second piston is not working and hold residiual pressure in the rear lines (Assuming they are drum brakes). If not you will need to bleed the m/cyl by cracking the lines at it one ata time and emptying the cylinder of trapped air allowing a full charge of fluid every time you pump the brakes.

Why do my front brakes not release have replaced rear brakes and cylinders front calipers and pads bled over and over calipers hang up release some times after sitting dont know whats next to solve problem


perportioning valve under the master cylinder may be stuck it is usually directly under the master cylinder(follow the lines down to it) this sends more fluid to the front than the back and will stick.if bad.. replace it..good luck..

I had to replace the brake lines in the rear of my car. The brake peddle still goes to the floor. do I need to bled the brakes some more?


Yes, try bleeding the brakes again, you may have to bleed the front brakes too. when the master cylinder goes dry from a broken line sometime air gets into the front lines also. otherwise the master cylinder could be bad when the pedal goes past it normal travel sometime it tears the seals inside and you be unable to build pressure in the master cylinder

I put 2 front brakes shoes on my 1995 Nissan Maxima,what is the correct way to bleed my brakes?Is their any order that i need to follow?


Did you open the bleeder screws at all. If not you may not need to bleed the brakes just pump the pedal to bring the caliper pistons out and your pedal should feel fine. If you just want to blled anyways open all your bleeder srews and as the fluid level in your brake master cylider goes down refill with new dot 3 brake fluid (do not alow the master cylider to drain completely). Close bleeders when you get clean fluid through. Start at passenger rear corner and have a buddy press the brake pedal down. open bleeder, close bleeder after squirt of fluid then have buddy release pedal. Do this a couple of time per corner. Go from pass rear to drivers rear then pass. front ending with driver front. You just flushed your brake fluid. Hope this helps.

No brakes


Either you master cylider went out, or your brake pads int the front are gone (you'll hear loud screeching, metal to metal) or, if this sound is not present, you may have blown a brake line next to one of the front tires, or the metal line that runs to the rear has a hole in it. This is caused by rocks hitting it while driving, or accidentally running over curbs etc.

Prices for complete repair services vary at different locations, however, to have all four brakes replaced (front and back), and have the master cylinder, brake lines checked, your looking at a couple hundred (or less) in parts and labor, depending on what needs replaced.

It's best to have a licened (certified) mechanic take a look at it for a true diagnosis.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

My brakes go to the floor what could it be I changed the master cylider its a 2002 ford escape


Did you bench bleed the replacement master cylinder?If you did and there is NO air in the braking system then look for improperly adjusted rear brakes[if drum],or a siezed caliper slide[s] if disc brake equipped.

I have a 1991 GMC Sonoma 2Wd with a 4.3 V6. I'm having trouble with the rear brakes still spinning. I just replaced all the brake parts in the back, wheel cylinders, drums, springs, etc. I replaced a line...
