    BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 1997 Pontiac Firebird AUTOMOBILES

    Power Brake Units -> General Service
    Vehicle: 1997 Pontiac Firebird 3.8 V6 GAS

    Two basic types of power assist mechanisms are used: vacuum assist diaphragm assemblies, which use engine vacuum or, in some cases vacuum pressure developed by an external vacuum pump. The second type is a hydraulic pressure assist mechanism, which use pressure developed by an external pump (usually the power steering pump). Both systems act to increase the force exerted on the master cylinder piston by the operator. This in turn increases the hydraulic pressure delivered to the wheel cylinders, while decreasing driver effort necessary to obtain acceptable stopping performance.
