Truck Brake Repair Tips & Suggestions
If your trucks have a hydraulic brake booster, there are a few signs you can look out for determining if they are failing. It is very important to always pay attention to prevent a potential safety issue. The first thing to look out for is reduced braking power. If there is an issue with the booster, or the pressure system becomes compromised, you will clearly feel a reduction of braking. Other issues can cause similar symptoms, so it is important to have a diagnostic check right away. The second thing to watch out for is a hard brake pedal. If the brake booster fails, it can cause the power assistance for the brakes to be disabled, if that happens the brake pedal will be hard to press. Thirdly watch out for leaking fluids, if any of the hoses or seal wear out or rupture, they may leak fluid. Any leaks in the hydraulic brake system will need to be addressed right away. Early detection could save you from a dangerous situation as well as protect against a costly truck brake repair.
If your trucks have air brakes, the process to check for issues is a little different. Air brakes use compressed air in order to stop the vehicle. Air brakes are actually three different braking systems, the service brake, parking brake, and emergency brake. Just remember the acronym LAB (Leaks, Alarms, Buttons) when testing the brakes. Call us today for detailed instructions on how to perform the air brake test.
