Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
How does the brake system booster work on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500, 6 cyl auto? Don't laugh, I'm a virgin.
I took my son's truck to a brake repair shop and they said I needed a new master cylinder and a new booster before they could do any more work on it. He has no problems stopping the vehicle. I took it somewhere else; it just needed new pads on the front discs.
Did you brake into the hydraulic system
at any point? If so them Moose had the answer. Did you crank the truck
in park and then push on the pedals so the brake assist booster can do
its job? Check the level of fluid at the brake resevoir. A low level
should be cause for a refill. Did you leave any brake bleeder valves
open? I assume it was the fron disc that were reaplced. If so hopefully
it hasn't blown a brake caliper . If so replacement or rebuild will be
the answer. You have definitely lost pressure so look for looks on the
inside of all wheels. Also try cranking your truck and then pump the
brakes to allow the brake assist to lend a hand and do its job.
