Presentation Description

When you are travelling on the road, your engine reaches very high temperatures. Water pumps work by pumping water through the engine from the radiator, which is then recycled back through the coolant system. A water pump gasket works as a seal between the engine and the water pump to prevent leaking and is fundamental to the cooling process. If your engine begins to leak coolant, it is vital that you get your gasket replaced promptly to prevent further damage to your engine. A visible sign of a coolant leak is a pool of water under your vehicle. Additionally, corrosion and wear with age and use can cause a gasket to fail, which can cause overheating and water leakage into the oil compartment.

Wheel Cylinder Replacement • If youve got a vehicle with a drum braking system wheel cylinders will form a pretty important part of what makes your car stop when you hit the brakes. The wheel cylinder exerts force onto the brake shoes pushing them into the drum and creating the friction to stop your car. When vehicles get older brake wheel cylinders tend to have a habit of starting to leak but the good news is theyre usually pretty cheap and easy to replace. • A wheel cylinder is a component of a hydraulic drum brake. It comprises a housing made from made from grey cast iron or in the case of newer model’s aluminium which is more lightweight. Other components of a wheel

Wheel Cylinders Function • A wheel cylinder is a component of a hydraulic drum brake. The wheel cylinder must force apart the brake shoes and press them against the brake drum. This generates friction and the wheel is decelerated. This happens every time the driver presses on the brake pedal. Pressing on the brake pedal generates a hydraulic pressure in the master brake cylinder which is transmitted to the wheel cylinder in the brake fluid via the brake lines. In the wheel cylinder the hydraulic pressure acts on the pistons which then exert mechanical pressure on the brake shoes.

Symptoms of Bad Brake Wheel Cylinder • Mushy brake pedal. One of the first symptoms commonly associated with bad wheel cylinders is a mushy brake pedal. Poor brake response. Another symptom of bad or failing brake wheel cylinder is poor brake response. Brake fluid leaks. Brake fluid leaks are another symptom of a problem with the brake wheel cylinders.

How many wheel cylinders does a car have • Most car hav 2 wheel cylinder the wheel cylinder consists of a cylinder that has two pistons one on each side. Each piston has a rubber seal and a shaft that connects the piston with a brake shoe. When brake pressure is applied the pistons are forced out pushing the shoes into contact with the drum.
