Power Brake Units -> Delco Brake Booster -> Description -> Operation -> Single Diaphragm Type -> Tandem (Dual) Diaphragm Type
Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.4 V6 GAS

In order to properly service power brake systems, a thorough understanding of the various power assist systems is necessary. These systems provide a mechanical assist, acting to increase the force applied to the master cylinder piston by the driver while decreasing the effort necessary to obtain acceptable stopping performance.

Hydraulic Brake Systems -> Description -> Hydraulic Control Valves -> Master Cylinder
Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.4 V6 GAS

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