Question about 1989 Dodge Ramcharger

2 Answers

89 4x4 dodge ramcharger will lock up front left brake

On two separate times, my front left brake stayed engaged on bumpy road.  My steering starts pulling and the rotor got extremely hot.  It's like the sliding caliper won't go back and stays breaked.  I had previously replaced the pads and then tried to replace the rotor because of a shimmy (warped left rotor) but the parts stores always gave me the wrong one.  The shimmy disappeared after the pads wore down and I'm ready to sell.

Had this problem on gm trucks. Replaced brake hose to caliper and fixed it. The inner core has failed and the outer core will fill and put pressure on the caliper.

Front wheel is bumpy at low speed. 4x4 stuck?


If the 4wd was engaged on dry pavement you would have a difficult time making a turn because the front tires would be turning at the same time.
If the bump or vibration is felt when you are driving down a straight road I would agree with the ball joint or other suspension theory.
I will note here that Jeep Cherokee came with two different kinds of 4wd, one version can be driven on dry roads when engaged.

Power steering pump installation


Matt,
If you hear a buzzing or zinging type of sound when you turn the wheels right or left, that means there is still some air in the pump or pump return lines. To stop the noise and protect the pump, block the rear wheels, place the transmission in park, and apply the parking brake. Jack up the front tires approximately two inches from the ground, making sure they are supported with something strong under the chassis so that it doesn't fall. Loosen the power steering cap just enough to where it will stay on, yet release any remaining air from the system, start the engine, very slowly rotate the front wheels to the right then to the left, this will release any air from the pump and the pump returning lines. When you don't hear any of the buzzing sounds, that means the air was released. Turn off he engine, remove the power steering cap, you will see the small air bubbles rising to the top. If you get any more buzzing sounds from the power steering system, repeat this process adding just enough fluid recommended. I know this sounds unusual, I have worked on Dodges for 43 years and my dad the main mechanic taught me this from his experience. This will also work on many other vehicles with power steering. Hope this helps with your power steering installation.

My abs light stays on all the time, front brakes are brand new


ABS is short for anti-lock braking system. This is a separate system from your hydraulic brakes.
The abs light means the system has a problem and it is disabled until you fix it. The regular brakes still work as you know.
Someone needs to scan the computer for ABS trouble codes and go from there.

CLIO CUO PULLING STEERING


could be the lower ball joint or the idler, idler usually when goes it will wobble while driving and pull to one side at a time, more so when braking. its attached to the steering, its most probably this, check it and if there is a lot of movement in it then replace it. if its un easy on bumpy roads it can also be the drop links these do go and need replacing from time to time as they control the anti roll bar, and bumpy roads damage them.
