1993 dodge dakota air in brake lines not getting to wheel cylinder


That is not possible, if you open the bleeder valves
& flush it thru & bleed in proper manner

Have to either bleed or remove & bypass the old rusted
hcu unit on left inside frame rail also.

If you remove it- unplug the module under dash
behind glove box

I replaced the rear brake line for my 1993 chevy silverado,and also bleed all four brake lines, but now the brakes are not working correctly and it has a whizzing sound when engine is on.


make sure you bleed the brakes in the proper sequence RF,LR,LF,RR. do this a few times and check the fluid. most times the truck has to be driven for the ABS to activate and the pedal to get firm. BE CAREFUL.

Brake pedal often goes almost to floor-not spongy at all-doesn't seep if pressure constantly applied.


Hi,
Probably air in the brake system. Bleed your brakes thoroughly. Start with right rear, then left rear, then right front then left front. Maintain proper fluid level in master cylinder while bleeding. Brake pedal hieght comes from the rear brakes, as those are the longest brake lines in the system. Mike

you may have air trapped in the ABS EHCU. Did you use this procedure?

Bleeding the EHCU

Bleeding the EHCU requires the use of the TECH-1 scanner or its equivalent and the appropriate cartridge. Additionally, 3 tools, J-39177 or equivalent, are required. Bleeding cannot be performed without this equipment.
The EHCU must be bled after replacement or if air is trapped within the unit. It must be bled after bleeding the master cylinder and before bleeding the individual wheel circuits.
The Internal Bleed Valves on either side of the unit must be opened 1 / 4 - 1 / 2 turn before bleeding begins. These valves open internal passages within the unit. Actual bleeding is performed at the two bleeders on the front of the EHCU module. The bleeders must not be opened when the system is not pressurized. The ignition switch must be OFF or false trouble codes may be set.
  1. Open the internal bleed valve 1 / 4 - 1 / 2 turn each.
  2. Install one tool J-39177 on the left bleed stem of the EHCU. Install one tool on the right bleed stem and install the third tool on the combination valve.
  3. Inspect the fluid level in the master cylinder, filling if needed.
  4. Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it down.
  5. Open the left bleeder on the front of the unit. Allow fluid to flow until no air is seen or until the brake pedal bottoms.
  6. Close the left bleeder, then slowly release the pedal. Wait 15 seconds.
  7. Repeat Steps 4, 5 and 6, including the 15 second wait, until no air is seen in the fluid.
  8. Tighten the left internal bleed valve to 5 ft. lbs. (7 Nm).
  9. Repeat Steps 3-7 at the right bleeder on the front of the unit.
  10. When bleeding of the right port is complete, tighten the right internal bleed valve to 5 ft. lbs. (7 Nm).
  11. Remove the 3 special tools.
  12. Check the master cylinder fluid level, refilling as necessary.
  13. Bleed the individual brake circuits at each wheel.
  14. Switch the ignition ON . Use the hand scanner to perform 3 function tests on the system.
  15. Carefully test drive the vehicle at moderate speeds; check for proper pedal feel and brake operation. If any problem is noted in feel or function, repeat the entire bleeding procedure.

How to bleed brakes


Clean the outside of the master cylinder reservoir so as to keep dirt out of all fluid.
Use a new, previously unopened bottle of the correct fluid (DOT 3, perhaps).
Open the seservoir, starting with the right rear, attach a suitable tube to the bleed screw, place the other end of the tube in a stable one quart jar below the level of the hub. Loosen the bleed screw (added tube attached) one half turn and allow gravity to move fluid from reservoir through the system watching two things: ceasation of bubbles in fluid exiting the bleed tube and that the reservoir never be allowed to run dry. Close the bleed screw, remove the bleed tube.
Repeat for left rear, right front and left front.
Check that firm high brake pedal is obtained prior to test driving.
Be ceratin that the brakes function before moving the vehicle.
Be careful with brake fluid, it will damage many surfaces and finishes. It does absorb moisture so keep it dry (no rain exposure). Dispose of old/unused fluid properly.

Start from right rear, then, left rear, right front, left front. Fill master cylinder. Have helper sit in car, have helper hold brake pedal down. open bleed screw. fluid and air comes out. close screw. release brake pedal. Continue until no air comes out. Move to next wheel. Keep an eye on master cylinder fluid level after each wheel.
