Sounds like you are not getting brake fluid to the brakes and this could be caused by plugged brake hoses or your brake master cylinder not functioning properly. I have already had to replace my power brake booster and my master cylinder.

Make sure that your rubber hoses that go to the calipers are in good shape and haven collapsed internally.

Have a 1994 dodge caravan, I need to know on the front brakes where or how the brake pad separator goes.


A brake pad separator is a tool that you use to seat the caliper piston, I use a c clamp for that, on the front.
If the part is a thin metal piece, put it on the backside of brake pad. I can't see anything from here.

How to change rear brake pads in 2008 dodge caravan?


In this tutorial, we learn how to check the brake pads on a 2008 Dodge Caravan, check the thickness of the brake pads on the car to see if they are thick enough. The rear pad is surrounded by a gold piece called the "shoe" and the rotor. The front pad has to be inspected by laying on your back and looking for the pad to see how thick it is. If the thickness is not enough, you need to replace it as soon as possible. Make sure the brake pads are up to t

Brake petal goes all the way to the floor no leaks antwhere front passenger pad stuck closed on rotor front passenger rotor pad bolts very hot after driving


the bolts are getting really hot because the friction of the pads running on the rotor the whole time whilst driving.
the pedal problem could be a few things but the most likely is either that the brake fluid needs replacing because it's got water in it,
there's air in the lines or the brakes master cylinder seals need replacing due to age.

Changed the front brakes on my 2005 Grand Caravan and now there's clicking and serious vibration at speeds above 40mph. Also, I need to bleed the brakes, b/c the brake pedal doesn't respond normally, and I...


sounds like the pads were either installed wrong or your forgot the have the rotors ground down. grinding down the rotors would have taken out any extra vibration. if the rotors arent ground flat, the pads will cause vibration as they seat against the uneven surface of the rotors. the clicking indicates that the brake calipher was not secured and is hitting the wheel when the brakes are applied. PLEASE Get a Manual from chiltons or haynes for your car they will help you change your pads and rotors more efficently.
