Does it leak when you press the foot brake with the park brake released?

Sounds like you might have gotten a faulty valve right out of the box

have you any more advice as to what the cause of air leak could be
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 1 year ago

I would need to access the air schematic for your VIN. I am out of ideas but possibly another expert might have a diagram for your air system. What is the last 8 of your VIN?

I am going to opt out to open this up for other experts to see if they can offer any schematics or further suggestions.

asked for the VIN No. 2WLPDCXH8TK943902 , The advice he has given has been of no help , the parts out of box being faulty is not justified ,due to air leak has not varied from previous installed vehicle parts ,to new brand new parts installed . he has opt out of further advice , so im to assume that you will be attending to this air leak advising Jeremy , the treadle foot valve is operating correctly .the air back feed is coming from the back of spring park brake push pull valve ,
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 1 year ago

Which line is it leaking out of? You are getting a back feed to the valve and it needs to be determined if it is from the primary or secondary system. If you can, cap on line at a time as well as the fitting until you can push the button in and the air stops. I would start with the trailer valve first. This will rule out the trailer circuit backfeeding from the hand valve as well as the trailer valve itself. Let me know the result. It will just be a process of elimination at this point.

The air starts leaking once you release the black spring brake push pull valve which makes the air leak associated to the primary air supply.
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 1 year ago

CLICK HERE go to this manual and refer to section 42.

You are getting a back feed from another valve. It can be the spring valve in the back or a relay valve. You will have to go line by line on the vales to see which is back feeding. If the yellow and red valves are not feeding back, then it has to be coming from another location in the system. It will require hands on where the internet won't be much help in this one.

are you a able to get the air brake system schematics and email them through for 1996 western star , the VIN No.has been supplied to you if that is of a help to yourself to get the information , as you need to be aware this brake system on vehicle is a, BLACK spring brake push pull valve , only consisting with a RED trailer supply push pull valve .
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 1 year ago

I did that already and see it didn't attach right. I will try again.

CLICK HERE Go to section 42. That has your diagram.

I see you viewed this and this is still showing as a open question due to no positive (3 stars or more) rating.

Did you still need assistance with this?

Good day Jeremy , the file you tried to send has failed , so im unable to download it from mediafire,air leak is still same, hopefully with air brake schematics to VIN CHASSIS No is able to be forwarded from yourself , a better diagnosis maybe obtained , thank you
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 1 year ago

That is because 10 days have gone by and the file deletes after 7. Why didn;t you download it the last 2 times I posted it up? I am charged $5 per pull. I have to pass the cost on to you. I will try and get a Premium Service offer added for this.

In order to send again, I will be charged so I have to pass that on since I have not gotten a rating yet from the previous times I sent it.

When does the air leak exactly, when you push in or when you pull out. Many people get this confused, I really need to know when push it in or when you pull the valve out, when does it leak, thanks.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Goodday , supertech52 sorry about lateness of reply but have other committments that take me away and unable to relpy promptly sometimes , im not aware if you are able to sight previous conversations regarding air leak at black spring brake push pull valve , air leak only starts after you release spring brake push pull valve , black spring brake valve has been replaced , double check valve has been replaced and R14 valve been replaced ,no air leaks from any 30/30 springbrake chambers nor any back feeding
Technician: supertech52, Heavy Duty Truck Technician replied 1 year ago

No problem, I too have been busy. I am able to read through the previous conversations.

  1. That tells me- that ( leaking) is when you push the button in?
  2. Just to clarify one more time, the valve that leaks, is the valve that releases the brakes?
  3. How many lines are on the valve? You have a supply and a delivery, and then an exhaust port.
  4. And does the air leak out the exhaust port?

Sincerely,

supertech52
