Asked by Jul 15, 2017 at 03:21 PM about the 1992 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr LE Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I press the brake pedal the
car "hops"

6 Answers

The front of the car hops?

JerKS maybe is a better word

If it jerks left or right, brake caliper sticks... Jerks up and down brake rotors warped.

What would cause calipers to lock up?

Have new information....lots of play in the wheel and when car is parked can move tire side to side with my hands

Caliper--- getting to hot, breaking to hard, old, tire moving side to side --- sounds like ball joints. Or tie rod ends.
