I recently purchased a 2001 Dakota Sport with 55,ooo miles. after having the truck 2 weeks I had what I thought was a caliper lock up on the passenger side. I replaced it for with a new one.Now after 1 week I am experiencing the same thing on the drivers side.Heavy vibration and pulling to the left.After I stop their is a lot of smoke coming from the wheel with a very strong brake oder.I have had numerious cars and trucks in the past but I have never had both calipers go at the same time.

The surge is from the engine - not gas slosh... I've had it too.. The RPM jumps momentarily and the truck lurches forward a bit. U gotta step on the brakes a little harder to keep from jumping ahead. It's not gas tank slosh...

Yeah, but this guy is saying that smoke is coming from the disc brake/rotor assembly...no engine surge could cause that...

Check your brake fluid. Both of mine just locked up and it was because the brake reservoir had trash or something in it. It is a self contained system. If yours has something in it let us know. They are not covering mine under warranty, it should be. I have never had the brakes lock up on any of my vehicle’s. I have had mine two year, brought it new. Just had to have the intermediate stearing bearing replaced,under warranty.

I had the brake issue also caused by a slide pin seizing up. I pulled the caliper, cleaned the hell outta it and regreased it with some Dow high temp grease, replaced the unevenly worn pads, reassembled it and have had no problems since.
