Excess up & down movement of the arm caused by a worn or seized bearing of the arm pivot will cause the arm to go out of true & thus out of line with rotor

Driver front caliber is sticking on my 2001 gmc sierra 1500


My guess would be maybe air in your brake line could be creating the issue. Bleeding both front brake lines probably wouldn't hurt. Not sure if this will solve the issue but worth a try.

Shakey steering wheel while braking


Hi, the problem is most likely due to warped rotors on your front disc brakes. I had a similar problem on my 1999 Grand Am. If that's the case you should replace the rotors and check the calibers and pads to ensure they are not in bad shape. If the rotors are unevenly wearing they should be replaced and if your caliber pistons or boot looks damaged then the calibers may need replacing. Ensure that the front pads have the proper lubricant where they slide in the caliber otherwise they can bind and cause your rotors to warp again because of excessive heat. Hope that helps you out.

1994 Chevy Cavalier front right brake is locking up every time you step on brake . I already changed that caliber and it is still doing it


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN A CALIBER LOCKS UP: IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE CALIBER BEING BAD. THE CAUSE IS THE RUBBER BRAKE LINE GOING TO THE CALIBER IS BAD INSIDE OF THE RUBBER HOSE. ONCE YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL YOU PUSH FLUID INTO THE CALIBER ONCE YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL THE FLUID DOES NOT ALL RETURN TO THE MASTER CYL. THE HOSE IS OLD AND THE RUBBER IS BUSTED INSIDE OF THE HOSE AND THE FLUID IS STAYING INSIDE OF HOSE AND HOLDING PRESSURE ON THE CALIBER. I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME AND NEEDLESS TO SAY IT COST ME AROUND $500.00 TO HAVE IT FIXED AFTER I REPLACED CALIBER, ROTOR AND BRAKES.

I need the firing order diagram 4 a 1975 ford granada ghia i believe it has the 302 cid v8.Also should'nt the dist.rotor point 2 the number 1 tower at tdc on the compression stroke?


Yes it should but the crankshaft turns 2 times for every one turn of the camshaft. Turn the engine over 1 more complete turn and the rotor should line up.
On a 302, for 1975, the firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Pistons 1-2-3-4 are on the passenger side front to back and 5-6-7-8 are on the driver's side front to back. #1 piston should be the first plug on the driver's side of the rear clip on the distributor cap, or about 1 o'clock. The distributor turns counter clockwise. Hope this helps.

Dodge 1500 ram van, 5.2 Eng. left, front brake locking on rotor. have replaced:hose or line, calibers, shoes, rotor, & bearings. No help


Possible warped rotor. Have you tested for this?
If too far gone, they sell 'em reconditioned.
If not too far gone, you can have rotor "turned" on special lathe (recut) to flat and parallel so it won't bind.
If perhaps rotor has been turned too much, caliper may not permit pistons to retract. Try installing a shim thicker than the rotor and see if it retracts.

Front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2


I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab brake replacement


jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be aware the back brakes are diffrent.........

let me know when you are ready for the back brakes.
do not blead the front ones if ou intend to do the back brakes afterwarwords......

if you are only doing the front brakes you must blead the the passanger side first......... if you do not have the bolts holding your caliber on than you will have a pin the you will take a hammer to and knock it out that will release them....
