Loosen the bleeder. If it releases replace the hose. If it doesn't , replace the caliper.

Car pulls to the right at all speeds


Sticking brake, bad wheel alignment.

I have a 99 Dodge ram 1500 5.2L stick shift and the front end is making a pulsing grinding noise at 15-30 mph, it stops as soon as I apply the brakes or turn.


1) Could be a stone or something similar between the pads and disks on your front brakes. Wheel off check the disks are they pitted, rusted or scored. Look for stones or grit between pad and disk.

2) Could be a wheel bearing, jack up the car (Securely) see if there's any play in the wheels. Try to rock them side to side and top to bottom. If there's play (movement/judder) from the hub, your bearing needs replacing.

My land cruiser 1993 pull to the right when im doing acceleration...and have some vibration while cruising...done balancing front and rear....done alignment. Pls advice....


Check for a brake, bearing or axle problem on the right wheels. A warped rotor could drag on the brakes and produce vibration. A bad bearing may also drag and vibrate. The easy test is to jack up the right side and spin the wheels by hand with the transmission in neutral.

Another possibility is a differential problem. You may detect that in the right side spin test. If you don''t find anything, try jacking up the rear end of the vehicle and spinning each rear wheel while watching what the other does. If they don't feel or act the same, or if you hear nasty sounds in the rear end, that would be your problem. If you have 4WD or FWD, do this test on the front end.

Front brake pads wear down too quick


Get the brake calipers checked, the slides are probably seized/sticking causing drag.Check the rear hubcap for stones/debris/looseness.There is also a brake snow/debris guard which tends to rust.

Why does my 1996 nissan pathfinders pull to the right when I take my foot off the gas pedal when it is in two wheel drive but not in four wheel


My first thought would be that you have a brake that is sticking, or dragging, or not fully releasing (on the right, front side). In 2-WD it creates a drag on the right side that causes the vehicle to pull to the right.

In 4wd, the front wheels & all 4 wheels are effectively driven at the same speed, so it compensates for the dragging brake.

I'd start there, and also inspect the cv joints and front drive system to see if there is something out of kilter.

I'd consider front end alignment issues, but does not really sound like that is the issue.

Front brakes replaced and then heard a loud bang


A noise like that in brakes are not something to guess at, or play around with. Call the place that did the brake job, and explain to them what happened. My guess is that they will come to you, or advise you to very carefully bring it to them for a look. Might have been a stone wedged or something but don't take the chance, have it looked at, a.s.a.p. and don't drive it if you don't have to until then.
