1990 Mazda B2200 Q&A
1990 Mazda B2200 Question: my truck has had a complete brake system done due to all the parts were ruined.
brake fluid that brake system was filled with power steering fluid when having a oil change. brkae system was contamied and had to replace all rubber basied compontes due to the fact it caused all rubber oarts to swell. Now I have next to no brakes at all. The dealer who did the brake job now says that the abs hydraulic valve has to be replaced before my brakes will work properly. This has been going on for 8 months now. Is this true about the abs hydraulic valve system . They want a addiitional $500.00 for the part - I have already paid them $1200.00 to fix my brake problem. What is your advice and does the abs system have anything to do with being able to stop my truck when I apply my brakes. I have taken my truck back to this company for at least once a month now because I have to pumb my brakes three or four times to stop my truck. This is how it has been acting since they installed all the new brake system.When I have stopped completly the brake peddle goes all the way to the floor board. I really need some advise - can you help me???????? - grumpy 7
It is true that when P/S fluid is put into a brake system in will dammage any seals that the fluid contacts. Also if the system is not compleatly flushed it may damage a new part that was replaced. The ABS valve most likey will need replaceing. If system was not flushed when original mwork was done you may be in for more grief. - milesauto
