WHAT IS A BRAKE VACUUM PUMP?

The brake vacuum pump is a crucial part of your vehicle’s complex braking system. In general, this mechanism helps create a controlled and reliable function of the brakes by supplementing your primary braking system. The vacuum booster pump performance regulates the flow of air within your brakes. This allows you to stop more quickly and effectively, and prevent excessive pressure buildup

 

When a brake vacuum pump stops working properly, it is likely that your braking performance will deteriorate considerably. A broken or faulty brake vacuum pump can cause serious problems with your brakes. This means that you may not be able to stop as quickly as you want to. Having such an unreliable braking system can be very dangerous for you, your passengers, and anyone else on the road. So, if you have noticed even a slight decrease in braking performance, it’s definitely worth getting checked out by a professional. Read on to learn what you need to know about getting your brake vacuum pump replaced through TLC’s replacement service.

WHAT IS THE MAIN CAUSE OF VACUUM PUMP FAILURE?

Actually, the most common cause of brake vacuum pump failure is just normal wear and tear. The more often you use your brakes, the faster your pump will wear out. 

 

This normal wear and tear can also be aggravated by rough brake usage. If you tend to stomp on your brakes instead of stepping on them gradually, your vacuum pump will wear out even more quickly.

WHEN SHOULD YOU REPLACE YOUR VACUUM PUMP?

As scary as unseen brake problems can be, there are actually some very clear signs that your brake vacuum pump needs to be serviced. If you observe any of these red flags, it may be time to replace your vacuum pump.

 

A hissing sound –  If you notice a hiss of air when you press on your brakes, this could signify a leak in the air pressure line of the vacuum pump.

 

Delayed brake response –  If you press on your brakes and find that they take a while to respond, your vacuum pump could be damaged.

 

Slipping brake pedal –  If your brake pedal slips to the floor of the vehicle when the car is running (but the vehicle is stationary), this could be a sign of  a malfunctioning brake vacuum pump.

 

Difficult braking –  If you find that it’s becoming more difficult to depress the brake pedal, especially when braking frequently (such as in heavy traffic), you may need to replace your brake vacuum pump.

HOW IMPORTANT IS BRAKE VACUUM PUMP REPLACEMENT?

BETTER PERFORMANCE

When your brake vacuum pump is in optimal function, it will help enhance the function of the rest of your braking system—and take some pressure off of your hardworking engine.

IMPROVED SAFETY

Because your brake vacuum pump helps your brakes work more effectively, you’ll experience a safer drive, feeling confident that you’ll be able to stop when needed.

MONEY SAVED

Prompt repair and replacement of your brake vacuum pump can help you save money on repairs, since the part will have less time to trigger related damage in other areas of your vehicle.

HOW TO PREVENT BRAKE VACUUM PUMP FAILURE

Unfortunately, because your car’s brake booster vacuum pump is part of such a complex system, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to completely avoid replacing it. However, you can prolong the life of this part with the following pro tips:

Don’t wait until there are signs of a problem to get your brakes checked. Instead, reference your car’s operation manual for recommendations on scheduled inspections.

When you’re driving, do your best to remain alert, and keep a safe distance between other vehicles and hazards, so that you’ll have plenty of time to stop if something unexpected happens. The kinder you can be to your brakes, the more likely you’ll be able to prolong their life and ideal function.

Through a partnership with a trustworthy mechanic, such as those working at TLC, you’ll be able to spot problems before they come serious. At the first sign of a faulty brake booster vacuum, be sure to contact your trusted mechanic to get the problem taken care of before the part completely fails.
