Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
Did you have this problem before you replaced the M/C? Inspect your brake system for leaks, especially the rubber hoses. Make sure all fittings are tight. Sometimes the caliper's seal around the piston will allow air to **** in, but won't leak fluid. Many cars from the 80's onward had pistons made out of plastic which causes a sticking and leaking problem. Many times rebuilt, loaded with pads, calipers cost just a little more than what a reseal kit costs. They have to be cutting corners somewhere.
If your vehicle has ABS, sometimes you have to hook a scanner up to bleed the brakes correctly. If you don't have ABS, you probably have a proportioning valve and these can cause trouble, especially on a high mileage vehicle.
