Question about 1999 Dodge Neon

2 Answers

Hubcaps I recently had a brake failure (hydraulic hoses seized and the brakes clamped down on the front drivers side wheel going 70 down the highway). Long story short, the hubcap melted off. Now that the brakes are fixed, I'm looking at after-market hubcaps. I have the hubcap on the one that melted off... but cannot manage to remove the three stock hubcaps. Any suggestions on how to get the hubcaps off? Thanks! Kjari

My right rear wheel on a 1999 dodge caravan locked up


There are a few things that can cause this,you will have to remove the wheel and brake drum to inspect it . Seized wheel bearing, grease or oil on brake linings,seized cable,if hydraulic seized wheel cylinder pistons. If the linings have oil or grease on them replace them on both sides for even braking.

Brake pad wear uneven


Hi, it looks like you have to get your steering tracking checked and also the brake cylinder on the nearside sounds as if its seized or not working properly.

Abs brake or brake trobles


Remove the corresponding line from the ABS pump and see if you have unrestricted flow from there down to the wheel well.
You could just blow in the hose again, but I don't recommend ingesting brake fluid, so use caution.
If you do have flow from the caliper to the ABS pump, then I'd have the ABS pump looked at by a mechanic. It's not something you'd want to dismantle on your own, there's a lot of small parts inside one.

Abs system brake


I would replace both rubber brake flex hoses,& then if
calipers pistons move to your liking, you need the engine
running to have the ABS Module & HCU Unit working
If you still have issues, the HCU Solenoid is rusted inside, for
whatever wheel brake you can't bleed or apply pressure to

Seized rear tire


On these JR bodies, and the earlier JA bodies, I have found that the rubber flexible brake hose to the wheels can collapse internally. This will cause the wheel to drag, and the brakes to smoke. If cracking-open the bleeder screw on that wheel frees it up, then you have found the solution. I have also seen the clamp on this hose rust, and actually "pinch-off" the brake line.

Service brakes are not releasing or releasing very slowly causing the front wheels to overheat. I have replaced both front calipers and pads. Still have this issue. While wheels were off I had an...


How about the rubber flex hoses

They collapse inside after 15 years or so
& sometimes the clamps around them rust
& squeeze them in.

The fluid may come out under pressure but not
return releasing the caliper properly

You need the engine running,a helper & not
pump the brakes when bleeding.

If the hoses are not real old ,bleed the system again

You need to remove all rust on sliding surfaces, also
& use anti-seize where things move & slide

My rigth side front brake is locking the wheel off while driving and the brake is applied


most common cause would be a bad disk brake caliper, or bad brake hose.

the way to find out witch one, is to jack up the front of the car and put it on jack stands. put the transmission in neutral. then turn the front wheels one at a time and wile turning the wheel have some one apply the brake the wheel should stop turning immediately and then wile applying pressure on the wheel have the person in the car release the brake pedal the brake should release immediately if not, then open the brake bleeder on the offending caliper if the brake releases then. you have a bad brake hose if the brake still does not release with the bleeder open then you have a bad brake caliper.

GOOD LUCK

Removal & Installation Front To Remove:
  1. Inspect the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir. Remove fluid from the reservoir until the level is lower then half way between the MAX and MIN levels.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Install 2 wheel nuts to secure the rotor on the hub.
  4. Remove the bottom brake caliper pin bolt.
  5. Pivot the brake caliper body upward and secure out of the way. Do NOT disconnect the hydraulic brake flexible hose from the caliper.
  6. Compress the piston back into the bore using a C-clamp. Figure of brake assembly with caliper raised showing brake pads in mounting bracket gmpc_l4.gif

  7. Remove the inboard and outboard brake pads from the brake caliper bracket.
To Install:
  1. Install the brake pad retainers and both brake pads into the caliper bracket.
  2. Pivot the brake caliper down over the brake pads and into the brake caliper bracket. Insert the lower brake caliper pin bolt and torque bolt to 70 ft-lb. (95 Nm).
  3. Reinstall the tire and wheel assembly.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Refill the master cylinder. Pump the brake pedal several times to seat the pads against the rotor.
  6. Check the master cylinder level and add fluid as necessary.

It also sounds like a more likely problem is a seized caliper on the left side. If a caliper seizes, the braking system transfers the pedal pressure to the other caliper thus, the working caliper locks up. Pull both front wheels and look carefully at the wear on the pads. Both wheels should have the same amount of wear. If one side is worn more than the other, the side with the least wear is seized and needs to be changed.
Never heard of a hydraulic repostioning valve, but maybe with ABS there is one. I do know of a proportioning valve which apportions brake pressure front to back and also blocks braking to front or back in the event of brake line failure. Maybe see which he is talking about, should be able to explain the difference. Hope this helps.
