Roar from front right wheel


does the roar change with left or right turns? most likely a wheel bearing, Dodge has poor front ends. or..is the brake dragging? the rotor would be hot after driving, discolored, smoking.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram and I have a deceleration jump/vibration at around 50-40 mph. When the brake is lightly applied it happens, when heavy brake applied it stops. I'm thinking front whell bearings


The front rotors are warped, the reason you feel it when lightly braking is because the pads are just brushing the high spots as they come by. Heaving braking will lock them in tighter and you will not notice it. They have to take the rotors off to turn them so they can check the wheel bearings at the same time and replace or pack them. Just have the rotors turned if they are not worn under the federal limits. If they are worn too bad you will have to replace them.

I have a 1999 dodge ram 3500 Diesel 4x4 and I go threw front pads and rotors. It sings when I'm driving down the road that the brakes are on could it be the master cylinder


YES IT COULD BE, BEST TO JACK VEHICLE UP AND SPIN WHEELS TO SEE IF THEY ARE BINDING.
IF SO CHECK CALIPERS WHERE PADS FIT SEE IF SEIZED ON SLIDERS.
ALSO CHECK FLUID LEVEL IF TO HIGH THE FLUID CAN NOT RETURN WHEN NOT PRESSED + SEE IF ITS BLACK FLUID NOT CLEAR, SIGNS OF CYLINDER FAILIURE

I have a 98 dodge durango 4wheel drive 5.2 v8.. breaks are getting hot and wearing out the rear pads. rear have drum front have disk. all 4wheels are getting hot. new everything all the way around.pads,...


check the abs fuse to see if it as blown they system may just be putting more pressure on different parts at differnt times because it is not getting proper control, also if the breaks are new you might consider using a dab of break cement on the back side of the pads and shoes to allow for proper release from the drums/rotors.

Front wheel makes a terrible grinding noise. Disk gets real hot after only a few blocks driving.


sounds like a brake problem, jack it up, pull off the tire and inspect the pads, if the rotors are getting that hot that quick it has the be a problem in the pads, the caliper, or you have a warped rotor....a quick inspection of the area will narrow things down pretty quick for you....best of luck!!

99 ram 3500 front brakes sticking, Replaced the front flex lines. Calipers don't seem to be sticking as I can push them back with a C clamp. I drove the truck after I replaced the hoses and it seemed fine....


First, make sure the pads aren't "frozen" to the caliper carrier. This is important, they must be free to slide. If the pads come out really hard, that may be your problem.
Most calipers have a small stainless steel clip that the pads seat into, and if rust gets behind these clips, it binds. I file them out and apply grease to keep rust out.

Excessive dragging of new disc brakes


It's normal for new pads and rotors to have a "wear-in" period but only for say 50-100 miles of average driving... Disc brake DO get pretty hot, especially after prolonged or hard braking... (going down long hills or a lot of hard stops)... also front brakes actually supply 60% of stopping force... If they aren't to hot to touch the wheel or smoking you are probably OK... One thing to make sure of is that the pedal has "free play"... usually a fraction of an inch before the brake push rod actually pushes the master cylinder piston. Without this free play the brakes WILL drag all the time and wear prematurely... but unless you replaced the master cylinder or the locknut on the push rod adjuster has come loose it's rare to have that problem... The only other cause of this would be a malfunctioning ABS unit and you would feel a definite pulsation... Hope this helps...;-)
