Engine brakes are used regularly and their moving parts wear over time. It’s not unusual to see a 20% to 25% decline of engine retarding with normal wear over 300,000 miles. As a driver, you may not notice the declining efficiency of the engine brake as the loss is gradual. With the decline of your engine brake efficiency come more regular use and wear and tear of your service brakes.
A single brake re-line will cost you many times more than an engine brake tune-up kit. Your dealer may recommend that you take the advantage of tuning up your engine brake at 250,000 - 300,000 miles or as the fuel injectors or valves are set. Because engine brake removal is a part of the process in the maintenance of the fuel injectors and valve setting, it is an ideal time to perform engine brake maintenance with a Pacbrake engine brake tune-up kit. Make safety a priority while saving time and money with Pacbrake premium quality tune-up kit parts at a fraction of the OEM cost. Ask your local dealer about engine brake maintenance today.
