                                                      lubricating oil on their connections.
                                                      6) Check vacuum hose to make sure it is tight
                                                      and secure.


1) With the engine off, depress the brake pedal
several times applying the same pedal force:
Make sure the travel distance should not
2) With the brake pedal depressed, start the
engine: Make sure the pedal should move
slightly toward the floor.
3) With the brake pedal depressed, stop the
engine and keep the pedal depressed for 30
seconds: Make sure the pedal height should
not change.
4) Check valve is built into vacuum hose. Dis-
connect vacuum hose to inspect function of
check valve.
Blow air into vacuum hose from its brake boost-
er side end: Air must flow out of engine side end
of hose. Next blow air into hose from engine
side: Air should not flow out of hose.
Replace both check valve and vacuum hose if
check valve is faulty. Engine side of vacuum
hose is indicated by marking "ENGINE" as
