problem #1

May 112006

Kodiak 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,631 miles
Brake warning light for service brakes came on. Soft brake pedal. Further investigation revealed loss of brake fluid and brake fluid sprayed all over left front wheel, chassis, and frame. Outside brake line from the brake pressure modulator had a hole leaking brake fluid. Cause of worn brake line was from the power steering hose coming from the hydraulic pump to the inlet side of the steering gear box. The power steering hose was rubbing against the brake line. Power steering hose was replaced and brake line repaired. Defective brake line is available for inspection.
