Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
When you did the pad replacement, did you press the caliper pistons back in with the bleeder open or closed?
What brand pads and hardware was used?
Will it stop, or does it start to or continue to roll with the brakes applied?
With the engine off and the pedal pressed hard and held, does it bleed down?
Can you check the aftermarket pads to see if they are incorrect and possibly binding and flexing not being pressed flush up to the rotors.
Next we need to get the vehicle on a downhill in drive, stopped. Hold just enough brake to keep it from rolling and let it sit there. If it starts rolling then you have a pressure bypassing leak, if it stays put then you have air in the lines to blame.
Keep in touch after these tests.
I assumed you were experiencing something way different in comparison to the old pads. I did not realize it was a new vehicle to you and you were not accustomed to the brake pedal operation and feel.
Glad your pleased with the operation of the brake system. Since there was no rating, you can use those funds for a future question.
