Disconnect the front and rear brake lines, undo bolts holding the master cylinder to the brake booster. Bench bleed the new master and reconnect to booster and reconnect lines. Be very careful when undoing the lines from the master cyclinder as you do not want to damage them. Soak with WD-40 before loosening. Once everything is back in place you will need to bleed all calipers and/or wheel cylinders. Again soak the bleeder screws beforehand with WD-40 as they break off easily.

SOURCE: brake lines to master cylinder

Hi,

Most modern master brake cylinders uses the split hydraulic system. Technically, it would not matter whether the front or the rear brakes are attached to which port. However since most automotive systems of the 90s utilize front disk brakes and rear drum brakes, it was customary to install the rear closer to the vacuum booster making the front brakes connected to the front farthest away from the pedal .

Of course, if the system (for some reason) has a modified brake system that uses a Proportioning Valve Section, then the rear would be connected to that and the left and right front on the two regular ports.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 99 dodge dakota has gas smell in cab when heater or ac is on

sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!

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.

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.

1991 dakota intermittently stalls or will not start after being run for 30 minutes or more of running.


When it does this you need to check if you have voltage ( spark ) going to the end of the spark plug wire, but it sound to me like your pick up coil is going bad, pick up coil sit under the distributor cap under the distributor rotor same size as distributor assembly ( black ) cheap$$, good luck, hope this was very helpful.
