What are the symptoms of a failed braking pump?


Braking pump is also known as the brake booster pump. During a braking process, It drives movement of the diaphragm by means of vacuum operation, causing the push rod on the diaphragm to act via a linkage device, thus increasing the force exerted by the driver on the brake pedal.
