Question about 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I have installed new brakes and rotors on my 2000 Grand Voyager SE The brakes have been bleed but I still do not have good brakes, we think that eaither there is air in the lines or a vaccume leak in the lines. But we do not know where all the air brake vaccume lines are located. If you have any idea what the problem might be please contact me. Thank You John

Hi John, when you say vacuum lines, do you mean line? as there is only one which is connected to the brake servo, this sounds like you have air in the system, the best way to bleed the brakes, is to start from the furthest away from the master cylinder, where you fill the brake fluid up, get a friend to pump the brake peddle then after about 4 pumps get them to push hard down on the peddle, then you open the bleed nipple let the fluid and air out, then close it quickly, then get friend to lift off slowly , then pump the peddle again and repeat till you do all the bleed nipples, just a tip, you will need a large glass jar, and a piece of hose (preferably transparent) to fit over the bleed nipple, half fill the jar with fluid, then put the hose from the bleed nipple in it, that way the air does not **** back into the line if you are a bit slow to do the nipple up again.....hope this helps please rate thanks

Clutch master cylinder gone do i also have to change slave cylinder due to bleeding problems 1999 Grand voyager


No need to change the slave cylinder, but bleed both and if you have low or no brakes then bleed the brakes too.

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?

2000 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER BRAKE SMOKING. IVE CHANGED ROTOR,PADS,CALIPER AND BLED THE BRAKES. AFTER DRIVING FOR A WHILE THE BRAKES START SMOKING FROM NOT RELEASING.


possible the master cylinder is not allowing the brakes to release all the way. also did you check the slider bolts on the brakes to make sure there not binding? if there new or all the brakes are smoking i would lean towards the master cylinder

Just replaced rotor and caliper on passenger side and it works fine but the driver side piston in the caliper is sticking. Also would like to know if I need to bleed both sides even though only 1 side was...


yes you need to bleed both sides starting with the one farthest from the master cylinder and you should try and clean all of the parts with a wire brush that the caliper slides on so that it dont get hung up you can also put a very light coat of grease on these parts to ease opperation of calipers most people who do brakes dont ever clean these parts and thats why their brakes either wear unevenly or dont work properly

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...


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

How do i replace front drivers side brake caliper?


Jack the van up, remove the tire. Then you will see the caliper. There will be 2 bolts that hold it on to the rotor. Remove the bolts and pry it off with a screw driver or what ever works. Then disconnect the break line from the caliper. After you get the new one use a c-clamp to press the piston down into the caliper and install the brake pads. Bolt the caliper back into place and install the line. Loosen up the bleed valve on the caliper 1/2 turn and have someone pump the breaks until no air bubbles come out. Once you have a smooth stream of brake fluid coming out the valve have that person pump once more and hold the pedal all the way to the floor. Then tighten the valve.

How do i get the rotor off the wheel for a 2001 grand am


Once you get the brake caliper off, you can remove the brake rotor. If the brake rotor still on the wheel hub give a good hit with a 5 pound hammer to break it free from the wheel hub which is most likely rusted on. When you place the new rotor on, put some anti seize on the hub where the rotor set's in too, so you can remove it easier the next time you have too. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted be glad to help.

Can't find where/how to bleed back brakes 2000 dodge grand caravan


The problem isn't at your brake calipers. Your rotors have a slight warp to them causing your vibration when you stop.
