Vehicle: 1998 Buick Century Limited 3.1 V6 GAS

System Operation

The function of the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) is to minimize wheel lock-up during heavy braking on most road surfaces. The system performs this function by monitoring wheel speed and controlling the brake fluid pressure to each front wheel and both rear wheels during braking. This allows the driver to retain directional stability and better steering capability.

Disc Brakes -> AC-Delco Single Piston Rear Disc Brake (Type 1) -> Troubleshooting -> Brake Roughness
Vehicle: 1998 Buick Century Limited 3.1 V6 GAS

Brake Roughness

To check for this condition, measure the disc at 12 points with a micrometer at a radius approximately one inch from edge of disc. If thickness measurements vary by more than .0005 inch,...

Drum Brakes -> Type 5 -> Precautions
Vehicle: 1998 Buick Century Custom 3.1 V6 GAS

When working on or around brake assemblies, care must be taken to prevent breathing asbestos dust, as many manufacturers incorporate asbestos fibers in the production of brake linings. During routine service operations the amount of asbestos dust from brake lining wear is at a low level due to a chemical breakdown during use, and a few precautions will minimize exposure.

  • Do not sand or grind brake linings unless suitable local exhaust ventilation equipment is used to prevent excessive asbestos exposure.
  • Wear a suitable respirator approved for asbestos dust use during all repair proced...
