BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 1996 GMC Jimmy AUTOMOBILES

Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported 1996 GMC Jimmy cars and light trucks from 1990+.

Power Brake Units -> Delco-Moraine Brake Boosters -> General Service
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Certain general service procedures apply, regardless of whether the brakes are vacuum or hydraulically assisted. Only top quality, clean brake fluid should be used. More seals and valves are used with power brake systems than with ordinary brakes, so an inferior brake fluid will do much more damage. For the same reason, be sure all dirt is kept out of the system. Additionally, on models with hydraulic assist brakes, care must be taken not to mix the fluids of the booster hydraulic system and brake hydraulic system as the fluids are not compatible.

If the power unit fails, the bra...

If the braking surface diameter is within specifications, drums should be cleaned and inspected for cracks, scores, deep grooves, taper, out-of-roundness and heat spotting. If drums are cracked or heat spotted, they must be ...

Hydraulic Brake Systems -> Description -> Hydraulic Control Valves -> Master Cylinder
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Master Cylinder

Some vehicles use a conventional tandem master cylinder with two hydraulic pistons operating inline. 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 check valv...
