1991 dodge dakota front brake sticks when driven 15 or 20 miles and pulls hard to the left


check the caliper it may be hanging up also check the rubber brake hose sometimes they collapse or swell causing drag either way you probably need 2 calipers and new lines(hoses) along with pads.

Front brake caliper on brivers side omn a 99 caravan keep locking up and smoking. i went through 3 calipers


Chances are the calipers are not at fault.You probably live in a northern state that puts salt on the roads in the winter time. Take a close look at the brake shoes. and where they mount. Often the manufacturer will put a thin metal plate over a caste iron iron caliper/brake pad mount. This is to give the brake pads a smooth surface to slide on. Take the the thin metal plates off of the bracket and file off the rust under neath the plates. The rust is expanding and pushing against the back of the thin plates causing the brake pads to bind and stick. This is then overheating the caliper and ruining it. Take a file and remove all the rust on the mounting brackets especially under the the brake pad slide plates. Once the brake pads move freely again the problem should go away.

I have a dodge ram 250 van 1987, front brakes are locking up by themselves , not touching the pedal,, when moving until the van stops completely ,, not able to move because front wheel are locked or when...


Most often that condition is caused by the rubber hoses that connect the caliper to the "hard" brake lines at the chassis. The hose may appear good but internally it collapses and prevents pressure from releasing. After correcting the problem be sure to replace the front pads as likely they are burned. If the pedal pulsates replace the front rotors as well, or, if they are still in relatively good shape, have them re-surfaced.

Front brakes sticking after a couple of miles


There are 2 causes, 1.caliper slides are in need of servicing/lube.2, caliper(s) piston(s) need to be serviced/cleaned. Recommend replacement of both calipers, if either doesn't work.

99 ram 3500 front brakes sticking, Replaced the front flex lines. Calipers don't seem to be sticking as I can push them back with a C clamp. I drove the truck after I replaced the hoses and it seemed fine....


First, make sure the pads aren't "frozen" to the caliper carrier. This is important, they must be free to slide. If the pads come out really hard, that may be your problem.
Most calipers have a small stainless steel clip that the pads seat into, and if rust gets behind these clips, it binds. I file them out and apply grease to keep rust out.

2006 dodge ram 2500 4x4 diesel replace brake pads front and back


Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.

Help with changing fron brakes on a 2006 dodge ram truck


After you have removed the caliper from the caliper mounting bracket, remove the pads and guides.  Make sure you have fully depressed the caliper's piston fully then you can start by putting the little guides back in then reloading the new pads back in the caliper.  Be sure to use some caliper grease on the caliper mounting bolts (the bolts that hold the caliper in place).  If you don't use grease on these mounting bolts, your caliper won't slide right and you can have uneven wear on your pads.  This could easily cause overheating.  Once you place the caliper back in the mounting bracket and tighten the caliper mounting bolts back down tight you are all done.  Put your wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts and you're done!
MAKE SURE WHEN YOU FIRST START THE TRUCK FOR A TEST DRIVE AFTER INSTALLING THE BRAKES, YOU NEED TO PUMP THE BRAKES BACK UP!!!!  IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL START DRIVING AND HAVE NO BRAKES!!!  PUMP YOUR BRAKES ABOUT 10-15 TIMES FULLY OR UNTIL THE BRAKE PETAL SEEMS FIRM.  ALLOW THE BRAKE PETAL TO COME ALL THE WAY BACK UP BEFORE PUMPING THEM AGAIN.

Right front wheel/disc brake? heat up


most likely a brake line causing problem. it is either the rubber hose or caliper sticking. the rubber hose will collapse and cause pressure to stay on the caliper
