Your ABS system may be acting up or has air in one of the lines. When you do the bleeding, be sure you use the correct procedure.

I have a dodge ram 250 van 1987, front brakes are locking up by themselves , not touching the pedal,, when moving until the van stops completely ,, not able to move because front wheel are locked or when...


Most often that condition is caused by the rubber hoses that connect the caliper to the "hard" brake lines at the chassis. The hose may appear good but internally it collapses and prevents pressure from releasing. After correcting the problem be sure to replace the front pads as likely they are burned. If the pedal pulsates replace the front rotors as well, or, if they are still in relatively good shape, have them re-surfaced.

After putting on new calipers on both sides of my dodge ram 2005 1500 and bled brakes I have no brakes. What is the problem they worked fine until I did the caliper and brake


Did you bleed rear brakes also? Should do all 4 whenever bleeding brakes starting w/ right rear, left rear, right front then left front. Sounds like air in lines.

I have 1987 dodge ram b250 van and i just changed the brakes,rotors,and calipers on the front but when i tried to bleed the air out of the lines i got nothing but the brake fluid resevoir is full of fluid....


Try connecting plastic tubing to drivers side bleeder valve. Place end of tube into a half full can of brake fluid. Press the brake repeatedly with the engine running so your power braking system is working. Watch the tubing until all bubbles have been pushed through the tubing. Repeat for the passenger side. The plastic tubing needs to be submerged in the fluid in the can to keep it from letting air back into the system through the bleeder valve.

Brakes on a 99 dodge 1500 van need to be bled did front and back but still no brakes wher do you find the abs unit to bleed


i dont think thats your problem. bleeding at the wheels is all you need to do. try looking for leaks in the brake lines, a common problem is the brake line going to rear brake hose it rots beside the gas tank, take a look see if its wet, hope this helps.

How do you fix sticking caliper pistons for a 1987 dodge mini ram van


If its the piston thats sticking you can purchase a kit for it but your probably better off buying the caliper. If the caliper is sticking and not sliding back and forth you need to buy a brake hardware kit for it. From my experience the brake hose usally collapses on the inside and causes it to stick you might want to check this out.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 conversion van rear brake hammering


Are the brake shoes on right, there are two size shoes, One shoe has a longer brake lining then the other. The short brake lining is towards the front of the van and the longer brake lining is towards the rear. The rear brakes also may need to be adjusted, you can do that by going in revers in a empty parking lot and push the brakes as hard as you can to stop the van. Don't give your self a whip lash, just push down gradually and as far to the floor you can about 7 to 10 times. The self adjusters should adjust the brake on both sides, try this first before you take the brakes apart again. It may just need a adjustment and after that check the brake fluid in the master cylinder. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help

Can't find where/how to bleed back brakes 2000 dodge grand caravan


The problem isn't at your brake calipers. Your rotors have a slight warp to them causing your vibration when you stop.
