How to Flush Brakes 98 Dodge Durango

Brakes are one of the most important safety systems in a car. Flushing your brakes can help to ensure that you stop quickly if necessary, and helps remove any built-up brake dust that can cause problems down the road. This article will show you how to flush your brakes using a 98 Dodge Durango.

Brake Flush Procedures

When you need to stop quickly, your brake system is essential. To ensure that your brakes work properly, it is important to flush them every time you change the brake pads or rotors. This process flushes away any debris that may have accumulated on the brakes and ensures that they are ready to operate at their best.

To flush your brakes:

1. Remove the wheel and tire.
2. Open the brake fluid reservoir cover (usually located on the drivers side).
3. Remove the cap from the Master Cylinder and add brake fluid until the level is visible in the reservoir (you should add enough fluid so that a full glass can be filled to the top of the marking). Replace the cap and make sure it is secure.
4. Close the reservoir cover.
5. Reconnect all hoses and cables (if they were disconnected).
6. Reinstall wheel and tire.

Tools Required

In order to flush the brakes on a Dodge Durango, you will need the following tools: a plunger and a bucket.

1. Locate the brake fluid reservoir. The reservoir is typically located behind the front left wheel on Dodge Durango models from 1999-2004. On 2005-present models, it is located behind the front right wheel.
2. Using the plunger, empty the brake fluid reservoir.
3. Pour about 1 cup of water into the bucket.
4. Place the bucket under the brake pedal and push and pull on the pedal until water starts coming out of the brake lines. Be careful not to splash water onto your hands or face.
