Brake Hose
FRONT BRAKE HOSE

  1. Raise the end of the vehicle which contains the hose to be repaired, then support the vehicle safely using jackstands. Make sure to block the wheels still on the ground to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
  2. If necessary, remove the wheel for easier access to the hose.
  3. Place a drain pan under the hose connections. First, disconnect the hose where it connects to the body bracket and steel tube.
  4. Unbolt the hose bracket from the strut assembly.
  5. Remove the bolt to disengage the banjo connection at the caliper.
To install:
  1. Position the new hose, noting that the body bracket and the body end of the hose are keyed to prevent installation of the hose in the wrong direction. First, attach the hose to the banjo connector on the caliper.
  2. Bolt the hose bracket, located in the center of the hose, to the strut, allowing the bracket to position the hose so it will not be twisted.
  3. Attach the hose to the body bracket and steel brake tube.
  4. Tighten the banjo fitting on the caliper to 19-29 ft. lbs. (26-39 Nm), the front hose-to-intermediate bracket to 75-115 inch lbs. (8-13 Nm), and the hose to brake tube to 115-170 inch lbs. (13-19 Nm).
  5. Bleed the system thoroughly, referring to the procedure presented later in this section.
  6. Install the wheel, if necessary.
  7. Lower the vehicle and remove the wheel block(s).

REAR BRAKE HOSE (TRAILING ARM-TO-FLOOR PAN)
  1. Raise the end of the vehicle which contains the hose to be repaired, then support the vehicle safely using jackstands. Make sure to block the wheels still on the ground to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
  2. If necessary, remove the wheel for easier access to the hose.
  3. Place a drain pan under the hose connections. Disconnect the double nut (using a primary wrench and a back-up wrench) at the tube mounted on the floor pan.
  4. Disconnect the hose at the retaining clip.
  5. Disconnect the hose at the trailing arm tube.
To install:
  1. Install the new tube to the trailing arm connection first.
  2. Tighten the connection to 115-170 inch lbs. (13-19 Nm).
  3. Making sure the hose is not twisted, connect it to the tube on the floor pan.
  4. Again, tighten the connection to 115-170 inch lbs. (13-19 Nm).
  5. Bleed the system thoroughly, referring to the procedure later in this section.
  6. Install the wheel, if necessary.
  7. Lower the vehicle and remove the wheel block(s).

Hope helps (remember rated this).

I have a 1988 dodge shadow 2.2L and it will start and rev to about or above 2000 rpms and when it tries to idle down it just dies. I replaced the iac and it ran fine until I powerwashed the engine bay out...


Sometimes the coolant sensor will cause this condition. It may be in advanced mode so when it's cool it wont idle properly. Also, try spraying the wires with a little silicone spray, the wires may have been affected by the powerwash. Good luck!

What transmissions are compatible with a 1988 Dodge shadow for a transmission swap?


Depends on the swap you are looking to do. Nearly all of the transmissions that were standard in shadow will fit perfectly in the mounts (you may have to re-center the engine, tweak here and there).

The Shadow Transmissions were:
Manual:
A520, A555, A523, A568?(on a lot of 2.2 2.5 turbo cars)

Auto:
A413

Some folks over @ turbododge have had success with some of the more modern mopar transmissions (out of Neons, and the Stratus) it depends on how much fabrication work you are willing to do for mounting.

I'd recommend the A568. It's a tough son of a gun that you can find relatively easily and the mounts should line up alright. Please do a mockup depending on what kind of engine you're putting in. You can find a lot of folks on turbododge and cardomain who have managed to put a 2.4DOHC in their shadows (of varying years) and they tend to use the A568.

PLEASE use new mounts, even a stock 2.2 tbi can quite a bit of kick to it if it's not properly restrained.

Hope that helps!
