Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported 1991 GMC K1500 Pickup cars and light trucks from 1990+.

POWER BRAKE UNITS, GENERAL MOTORS -> General Service -> CHECKING COMPLAINTS
Vehicle: 1991 GMC K1500 Pickup Sierra 6.2 V8 DIESEL

Diagnose power brakes systems as if two separate systems exist. Check for faults in the regular brake system first. If no problem exists in the regular brake system, diagnosis the power brake circuit is necessary. For a quick check of proper power unit operation, press the brake pedal firmly and then start the engine. The pedal should fall away slightly and less pressure should be needed to maintain the pedal in any position. On vacuum suspended power units, air will rush into the air intake when the brakes are applied.

To perform another check, remove the stop light switch, ...

ANTI-LOCK BRAKES, GENERAL MOTORS -> Rear Wheel Anti-Lock Brake System -> DESCRIPTION
Vehicle: 1991 GMC K1500 Pickup Sierra XC 5.7 V8 GAS

The Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) system, Fig. , reduces the occurrence of rear wheel lockup during severe braking by regulating rear hydraulic line pressure. Pressure applied to the rear wheel brakes is regulated by a control valve assembly located under the master cylinder. The control valve consists of a dump valve which releases hydraulic pressure into an accumulator, and an isolation valve which holds rear brake pressure. Operation of the dump valve and isolation valve is controlled by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) which is mounted next to the master cylinder.

The ECU receives ...

MASTER CYLINDER

Some vehicles use a conventional tandem master cylinder with two hydraulic pistons operating in line. The primary piston controls the front brake system and the secondary piston controls the rear brake system.

Other models use a master cylinder that operates the same as the conventional master cylinder, but also incorporates a quick take-up feature in the rear chamber to reduce excessive pedal travel which may result from increased fluid displacement required to move the low drag caliper piston out against the rotor.

The quick take-up uses a spring-loaded ball...
