SOURCE: 1988 Dodge Dakota brake line size question

they should be 3/16" but if you want to be sure, take a quarter inch wrench and put the open end over the line if it is sloppy on the line it is 3/16" , if it fits nicely, it is 1/4" . that is the only two sizes they could of used.

SOURCE: how is the master cylinder replaced on a 93 dodge

use a flare wrench and remove the two brake lines
then remove the the two nuts that hold it to the fire wall
then remove.
then remove the master cylinder reservoir because your
going to have to put it on the new one
drain out any brake fluid from it
in stall the reservoir on the new master cylinder
now you'll have to prime the new master cylinder
put the master cylinder in a vise and put brake fluid into it
now place your fingers over the two holes that the brake line go into
use a large phillips screw driver and push the piston in and out about 10 times
but do it slowly. make shore to keep your fingers over the brake line holes .
now install it back in
remember to bleed your brake system when your done

SOURCE: Have a 1991 dodge dakota, have replaced everything , still cant get brakes to work.

How about the rubber flex hoses restricted

In the rear you have an abs hcu you can throw way
& bypass,then unplug the controller up under the dash
on the passenger side

Also the rear brake cables won't work for rust,they have to go also

I had a 1992 Dakota for 18 years

Leave the wire off the proportioning valve as the vehicle is wired wrong & if your bleeding it ,it will melt down the wires in the ignition switch (been there) Vehicle is not the same as the factory wiring diagrams

1988 dodge dakota brake problems


It's the master cylinder, Theresa. It will need replacing, because the internal seals are not holding against pressure.
It is not a job for just anybody, but somebody with some experience in bleeding the master cylinder and then bleeding the individual wheel brakes could do it. It's a procedure for getting all air out of the system after replacing parts.

Rear wheels lock up on my dodge dakota


What year Dakota? Drum Brakes?

Lock up when?

If you use the parking brake,then the cables
have to be replaced because of rust.

With proper brake maintenance once a year, there is no
reason to say they lock up while driving

I have a 2004 dodge dakota my brakes work but when i press them they make a sound like they are releasing air


there is no problem the master cylinder is connected to a vacuum device called a brake booster when you press brakes it sucks air out of it it is the big black round thing connected to master cylinder which is the metal thing under brake fluid holder

I have replaced the brake master cylinder and bled the brakes. I still have spongy feel to them and it also feels as if the push rod is off, but it isn't at least not at the master cylinder.


you will have to bench bleed the new master brake cylinder. you can buy a kit the contains fittings and hoses to do this on the car. When you install a new master brake cylinder without bench bleeding it first air will remain trapped inside and no amount of wheel cylinder bleeding will remove it.

Brake fluid leaking from the bottom of the driver side on a dodge dakota 97


master cylinder maybe or the brake lines going to the back of the truck, but most likely the master cylinder, check to see if you see any brake fluid on the front of the brake booster or any paint peeling off the brake booster
