 · Air (bubbles) is usually caused by a loose tube or damaged casting that allows air to enter the suction side of the system along with allowing oil to leak out. b. Water in the oil can be caused by a bad transmission oil cooler. 2. Check all oil lines, hoses and connections for leaks and damage. Look for oil on the ground under the machine. 3.

AIR BRAKE SYSTEM TROUBLESHOOTING

-Excessive leakage elsewhere in the air brake supply system.-Inadequate reservoir volume

Air brakes use compressed air to make the brakes work. Air brakes are a good and safe way of stopping large and heavy vehicles, but the brakes must be well maintained and used properly. Air brakes are really three different braking systems: service brake, parking brake, and emergency brake. •= The service brake system applies and releases the.

Continuous air leak from air dryer purge valve

 · I have a constant air leak from the purge valve on the air dryer. Here's what I've found: Starting at zero psi, the system builds pressure fine and fairly quickly. The dryer cycles as it should per Meritor manual. After the system purges, there is a slow but steady air leak from the purge valve. Shut the truck off and it still leaks.

Advanced Troubleshooting Guide for Air Brake Compressors

Air compressors are designed to build air (run "loaded") up to 25% of the time. Higher duty cycles cause conditions that affect air brake charging system performance which may require additional maintenance. Factors that add to the duty cycle are: air suspension, additional air accessories, use of an undersized compressor, frequent stops.
