Hydraulic Brake Systems -> Description -> Hydraulic Control Valves -> Master Cylinder
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3 V6 GAS

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 check val...

Disc Brakes -> Delco Dual Piston Sliding Caliper -> Precautions -> Brake Disc Service -> Brake Lines & Linings -> Brake Roughness -> General
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3 V6 GAS

Brake Lines & Linings

Remove one of the front wheels and inspect the brake disc, caliper and linings.

Do not allow any oil or grease on the linings. It is recommended that linings be replaced in sets when worn or damaged.

If the caliper is cracked or fluid leakage through the casting is evident, it must be replaced as a unit.

Brake Roughness

The most common cause of brake chatter on disc brakes is a variation in thickness of the disc. If roughness or vibration is encountered during highway operation or if pedal pumping is experienced at low speeds, the disc may have excessive thickness v...

BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 2004 Chevrolet Blazer AUTOMOBILES

Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported 2004 Chevrolet Blazer cars and light trucks from 1990+.

Anti-Lock Brakes -> Kelsey-Hayes -> Description
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3 V6 GAS

When wheel slip is detected during a brake application, the ABS enters anti-lock mode. During anti-lock braking, hydraulic pressure in the individual wheel circuits is controlled to prevent any wheel from slipping. A separate hydraulic line and specific solenoid valves are provided for each wheel. The ABS can decrease, hold, or increase hydraulic pressure to each wheel brake. The ABS cannot, however, increase hydraulic pressure above the amount which is transmitted by the master cylinder during braking.

During anti-lock braking, a series of rapid pulsations is felt in the brake pedal...

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3 V6 GAS

Height Sensing Proportioning Valve

The height sensing proportioning valve must be adjusted whenever the valve and/or linkage is disassembled or removed for service.

  • Raise and support vehicle, leave wheels on and allow axle to hang freely.
  • Remove lever retaining nut and disconnect lever from valve shaft, Fig. .
  • Rotate valve shaft to permit installation of correct adjustment gauge, Fig. , ensure D shaped hol...
