2000 Dodge Caravan sport brakes won't release in the front


Check the cap to see if rubber seal is swollen if so some one has put other fluids in other than dot3 brake fluid,thus causing all rubber parts in the system to swell causing brakes to not release this is the most likely cause.Repair is to replace all related rubber brake parts,hoses,calipers,master,wheel cyl etc etc flush the steel lines also.

Flush Brake Fluids and Power Steering Fluids Economically


Many vehicle maintenance schedules require flushing of BRAKE FLUIDS, as well as HYDRAULIC POWER STEERING FLUIDS. An inexpensive way to do this yourself is to go out, and buy 2 TURKEY BASTERS. Mark each separately, one P/S and one Brake Fluid. DO NOT INTERCHANGE. As per maintenance schedule, siphon brake fluids from MASTER CYLINDER, ( recycle properly ) and replenish with fresh , clean fluids, Do the same with the power steering fluid in the pump. Of course you won't be removing all of the fluids, but a sufficient amount will be replaced. You can do it 2x after running if so inclined.

Bleeding brakes on my 2001 montero sport mitsubishi


I have very bad news brake system + atf = complete brake system replacement. the rubber o-rings and seals that are used in brake systems that are compatible with brake fluid are absolutely not compatible with any other fluid in a vehicle. if you haven\'t used your brakes at all since the atf was put in then suck it out remove and clean brake master reservoir. but if you\'ve driven it and used the brakes it\'s all got to go except the steel brake lines which can be flushed out once you remove the rest of components. and I mean all of them calipers, hoses, master cylinder, abs hydraulic unit it\'s all junk now.

I recently took my 2006 toyota tacoma to the tacoma dealership where i regularly have my oil changed. They recomended to me that I get my power steering flushed, brake fluid flushed, recharge the K&N...


their job is to sell work.however its a good idea to have the brake fluid flushed and the fuel system cleaned.the power steering fluid you don`t have to have flushed,you can if you choose to.you don`t have to have it done at a dealership and it will not void any warranty,if you have extended.

My ex wife put power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder and drove the car across town..... what should i do


Immediately **** out the contents of the master cylinder, replace with fresh brake fluid, and flush the system.

Flushing can be done by doing a good old fashioned manual bleeding consisting of one person opening and closing the bleeder screws and one person working the brake pedal or many shops will have a brake flush machine that will make quick work of the job.

The P/S fluid in the brake system will cause the seal to bloat and eventually fail. We see several cars every year that this happens to. If its caught early a system flush will take care of it. If ignored everything gets replaced (master cylinder, brake hoses, calipers, and wheel cylinder). We have had a few over the years that where ignored for so long that the brakes eventually locked up.

Fuel injector flush how hard is it to do it yourself? That and power steering and brake flsuh. 2005 Avalance V-8


depending on how bad the injectors are you can put some Lucas fuel treatment in your gas tank and it will clean them up for you. I use it every other fill up and have had no problems. My avalanche has 88,000 miles and I have never had injector problems. The power steering flush and brake flush you will need a vacuum pump.

Brakes: Locate the bleeder valve on each caliper and hook up your vacuum pump to it and pump it 4-5 times. Make sure your fluid reservoir is full. Put clean fluid in reservoir as needed. Repeat this again. ON bake brakes you will want to give it a few more pumps than the front because they are farther away from the master cylinder. You will need 2 of the small bottles of brake fluid or 1 large bottle. Sorry, I dont remember the oz. on each size.

Power steering: place a hose into the reservoir and pump all fluid out. Turn wheels all the way both ways and repeat twice. You will need several courts of power steering fluid.
