I went to auto part store and asked for the master cylinder for my caravan. This is a four wheel disk brake system. At the store they sold me the master cylinder for my caravan so I expected it to be the correct part. I was surprised to find out when installing this new part that the fitting on the end of ech brake line that attaches to the master cylinder wer a littlie smaller then the threaded female opening on the new cylinder. they would not thread in and hold tight or even be tighted all the way so I figured they gave me the cylinder for the caravan with rear drum brakes. So when I took the new cylinder back and check to see if the new cylinder was for the caravan with four wheel disk brakes I was surprised to find out the new cylinder was the one for the caravan with four wheel disk brakes. So I exchanged the new cylinder that is for the caravan with four wheel disk brakes and got the cylinder that is for the caravan with rear drum brakes. When I installed the new cylinder that is for the caravan with rear drum brakes it fit and the end of the brake lines threaded together perfect and I bled the air from the system. All seemed well until I started getting air into the system and looseing brake pedal. this is why I replaced the cylinder to begin with. Cause when I removed the master cylinder that was on my caravan when i bought it, there was brake fluid visible. So I figured this new cylinder would fix my problem. But it is doing the same thing and I havent removed the new cylinder to see if there is brake fluid visible again. I wanted to get some answers first before I attempt any more troubleshooting of my brakes. Now what I want to know is if its ok to have the master cylinder thats for the caravan with rear drums on my caravan that has four wheel disk brakes. Or do I need to cutt the end of both the lines that attach to the master cylinder and put on the larger fittings and flair the brake lines so they will fit the cylinder that is for the caravan with four wheel disk brakes. Because cutting and flaring the brake lines with larger fitting is the only way the four wheel disk brake master cylinder will install correctly onto my caravan. Once I get the answer on what I need to do I can finally not have to bleed my brakes every day. thank you

My 1998 Durango seems to be stuck in 3rd gear. Will not go into overdrive. Will only reach top speed of 65 and struggles. Fluid and filter changed with no resolve. One band adjusted but not the other. Could 4-wheel drive still be engaged without knowing. Do I need a new transmission? Help, I love my durango!
My car went for 115 K maintenance. When I was driving on highway, I noticed smoke from exhaust, rear windshield oily, and strange noises from the hood. When I parked the car oil was dripping from the engine. Therefore, need to know the diagnosis and its frequency (if reported by others). Thank you.

My altenater is fine what could be wrong?
What could it means no oil is leaking
The oil has always been full when it does it and no signs of a leak. Would this be caused by a faulty oil pressure sensor. If so how do you replace it. What else might cause this issue?
