My 2002 dodge caravan sport is in need of pads thought I had time, but the break to the floor board doesn't stop vehicle. My break fluid was low and I could hear sounds of air every time I break. Now I...


I believe you have drum brakes on the rear of your Caravan, & it sounds like you have a wheel cylinder leaking, it will have to be replaced. This is what it looks like. Parts & labor to do a rear brake job should run around $220.00....Shop around and get a few estimates. Good luck, i hope this helps.

does the truck have rear drum brakes on the rear? if so then the fluid is leaking out of the rear wheel cylinders. or the master cylinder is leaking fluid into the brake booster.

I have a 94 chevy cavalier z24 and recently only one of my breaks was getting break fluid and the other 3 do not what could be the problem


Are they disk or drum brakes? Any leak is not good, need to replace either the caliper (front disk), cylinder if drum (rear).

How to bleed brakes on a 1992 Chevy Caprice. Specifically the rear drums


start from the fartherest place from brake master cylinder, that will be the rear passenger side wheel. it takes two people to bleed brakes. you will find the bleeder valve screws at the top of inside of the rear drums on both rear wheels, have someone pump the brakes up, will take at least 4 pumps of brake pedal, at 4th pump keep pressure on pedal while you break loose the bleeder valve on the rear wheel, fluid will come out and brake pedal will go down to floor, keep pressure on brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder screw back [note] you'll only have to back the bleeder valve out about a half turn until you see the fluid come out. after you've done the rear brakes add brake fluid to the master cylinder as it will be low. then go to the front passeger side and you will find the bleeder screw on the brake caliper. repeat the same proceedure as back. remember that pressure on the pedal is a must until you've tightened those bleeder valve screws back or else it will **** air into the brake system. suggest that you bleed all 4 wheels not just the back. after you've bled the front make sure you add more brake fluid back to the master cylinder, it will be low again. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I should have said what kind of leak I have brake fluid leaking from the rear passinger tire


you mean from "near" your rear passenger tire. Tires don't have brake fluid in them...!
Take a look at the inner part where the wheel mounts to the axle. There is a brake line there, so look to see if it looks like the brake fluid is coming from it, (and that you verify the brake fluid resevoir under the hood is low) or that it might be from the brake drum area. If it's from the brake drum, you probably have a "wheel cylinder" leaking, and need to remove the wheel and drum to verify this.

1994 gmc back left tire break leak


Most likely rellted to the rear wheel cylinder. You need to remove the tire, probably replace the brake shoes if they are wet with fluid, wipe down brake drum with carb or brake cleaner, install new wheel cylinder and put everything else back together. Wheel cylinder is available through most auto parts outlets. Probaby less than $15.

I have a 1992 Chevy 1500 4x4 the right rear wheel has locked up. I took the brake drum off and it looked like the brake shoes are not releaseing. What would cause that?


frozen or engaged parking brake cable or possible bad brake hose but that would cause both to lock is the other wheel cylinder leaking? that would releave pressure from the wheel . a fluid leak (axle seal or cylinder) can cause the locking feeling because it slips then catches when the fluid wears off hope this helps

Sounds like you have a leak in the brake system. The fluid you are seeing is brake fluid.

You need to get this fixed asap.

Fast fule leak at injectors


Well it sounds like the leak is at the right rear of the engine as you face it if so right back by the fire wall is where the fuel lines couple together if you take the lines apart there should be a o-ring on eack line check that out and see if that is where the leak is
