Anti-Lock Brake System (760) 741-7861


DESCRIPTION

Brake Caliper

The Anti-Lock Brake System allows the driver to stop in the shortest distance while maintaining steering control. During normal anti-lock operation a pulsation in brake pedal and a clicking sound will be sensed. System consists of a master cylinder/booster assembly, Electronic Control Unit Hydraulic Control Unit electric pump/motor, 4 wheel sensors, and warning lights.

OPERATION

The Electronic Control Unit receives and processes a wheel speed signal from each wheel sensor. When wheel lock-up is about to occur, the Electronic Control Unit activates solenoid valves to modulate hydraulic pressure to each wheel. A pump/motor assembly provides hydraulic pressure to the system. The traction control system controls wheel spin by modulating the engine torque by communicating to the PCM and by applying and releasing the appropriate brake to restore traction when one or both drive wheels lose traction and begin to spin during acceleration.

BRAKE REPAIR SYMPTOMS

Brake pads and brake rotors are wear items and should be inspected regularly and replaced when approximately 1/8" of friction material is left on the brake pad backing plate. Brake rotors should be replaced when at or near the discard thickness engraved on the brake rotor.

CLUTCH REPAIR SYMPTOMS

A complete clutch repair is diagnosing the cause of the problem and replacing all worn or damaged clutch components. Clutch component parts do wear and some self adjust to compensate for normal wear in clutch disc friction material.

TRANSMISSION REPAIR, SERVICE & SYMPTOMS

Neglect and overheating causes 90% of all transmission & transaxle failures per industry feedback and most of them are due to worn out transmission fluid. Regular transmission service can help avoid major transmission repairs

DIFFERENTIAL REPAIR, SERVICE

High operating temperatures reduce the gear lube's ability to lubricate, which can lead to axle and bearing failure leading to major differential rpairs. Differential service includes draining &fillin with new gear lube. to avoid expensive repairs. Most manufacturers recommend differential service every 30.000 miles.

CLUTCH SPECIALS REPAIR

San Diego Clutch Repair and Service. The clutch repair specials include all four pieces of the clutch, resurfacing of the flywheel and labor. Service the clutch on a regular basis to avoid clutch repairs.

MAINTENANCE REPAIR SERVICE

Maintenance Repair & Service. 30K-60K-90K-120K Maintenance repair & service are typical and are not specific to any vehicle. Always refer to the vehicle owners manual.
