Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
How do i bleed front brakes on 88 ranger? when starting vehicle, very loud grinding noise, maybe starter or flywheel?
Bleed right side first...open valve on caliper and have someone step gently down on brake. close bleeder. repeat till no air comes out. Repeat on drivers side. Keep master cyl full while doing this.
Grinding noise can come from bad starter drive gear, bad flywheel teeth or misaligned starter. You have to check this...I can't see that far!!! Best way to see flywheel teeth is to remove starter and turn engine by hand while looking into starter hole.
