Question about 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I have a 99 grand voyager and the drivers side front brake is squeling. I'm not sure how to do brakes, but was told I have disc brakes in the front and drum brakes on the rear. Should I replace the pads and what else? Thank you so much for all your help!

These brakes are a pretty easy fix. For the job pick up some cheap gloves, you'll need general hand tools, proper Brake Fluid (DOT 3?)some brake cleaner, a large C-clamp, new pads (front) and I'd replace the front rotors too. Place the van on jack stands, remove front tires, using some brake cleaner spray down the calipers, pay special attention to the boot around the piston to clean well (if heavy dirt is left on it, it can make for sticky caliper(s).) Place the C-Clamp ove the calliper to compressit (DO NOT TIGHTEN ON YET!) Loosen the bleeder screw on the back of the caliper and place a small tube on it, now slowly tighten on the C-clamp, this will cause the piston to gently push back in to the caliper, you'll note old fluid coming from the bleed screw. Once fully driven back (don't over tighten!) remove the C-clamp and caliper and clean up with spray. Remove and replace the rotor, install new pads (lubricate as needed) and reinstall the caliper. Repeat to other side; once done bleed brake system and replace with new brake fluid. Be carefull with brake fluid and with brake cleaner, nasty stuff!

In general this is how it goes.

I hope this may have helped!

Best regards,
Tom

My 99 Plymouth grand voyager has a recurring brakes problem.What could be wrong?


Fixed--- I don't think so !!

3 Mechanics-that is sad

How about the power brake booster?
Was that checked & the vacuum check valve okey?

You wouldn't be happy if that solved the issue & you
got the valve off the wall on a trip thru the parts store
& installed yourself

What about ABS Issues?

What happens if you command the valves open
with a scan tool,bleed system & test drive with scanner
and valves still open or disconnect the motor to it & drive
around a few days.

I remember a load leveler valve under the back on
the drivers side on some caravans?

The fluid has to go somewhere,if not back into the reservoir,
then the abs unit maybe.

Better check the not leaking part yourself, unless you don't
loose any fluid

You bleed them there okey for 3 days,why,that is the key,
then what?

Do the back brakes have a drum pad as well as brake pads


depends on the system you have, Most newer cars have disc brakes on the front, and the rear brakes vary , some have drum brakes and some disc on the rear as well as the front , both versions use a PAD, drum brakes usually refer to them as brake shoes, and disc's refer to them as disc pads

Front left hub and wheel get extremely hot. no pulling


Please get the disc brakes checked, it may be jammed causing friction on disc causing the heat. For a try, you can take car on empty road and do some short sudden acceleration and hard braking. This way jammed disc brake may free up and solve your problem.

The front/driver's side of my van is leaking brake fluid very fast.


sounds like a broken brake line or a brake master cylinder problem. the master cylinder has a resevoir ontop were you add brake fluid. Does your brake pedal feel spongy? if so sounds like your master cylinder needs to be replaced.

On a 1990 Plymouth Grand Voyager what is the block that the brake lines go into on the drivers side rear?


It has to do with the load leveler, which is nothing but trouble trying to get the back brakes to work right. If you are having a problem getting good brakes to the back, it's not a bad idea to by-pass this block.

Brake fluid


on your 99 Plymouth u should not have to add fluid unless it's time to replace brakes. But on the driver side under the hood u will find a yellow cap that will say dot 3 fluid only. make sure you are using the proper fluid, you can find that at your local auto parts store. Do not fill this all the way to the top.
