Auto 06 - Stop! Write This Quiz, Pt 1 - Quiz

The first of two quizzes on brakes and brake systems.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Why are front brakes changed more often than rear brakes?
    • A. 

      Disc brakes aren’t as durable as drum brakes

    • B. 

      It’s not true - rear brakes are changed more frequently

    • C. 

      Front brakes have to work harder than rear brakes

    • D. 

      Brakes don’t need to be changed

  • 2. 
    How many pistons are found in a master cylinder?
    • A. 

      One - the slave cylinder distributes the pressure

    • B. 

      Two - one for each system

    • C. 

      Three - in case the first two fail, there is a back up

    • D. 

      Four - one for each wheel

  • 3. 
    Which type of disc brake has a piston on each side of the rotor?
    • A. 

      Fixed caliper

    • B. 

      Floating caliper

    • C. 

      Sliding caliper

    • D. 

      All disc brakes have pistons on each side of the rotor

  • 4. 
    How is rotor wear accommodated for on disc brakes?
    • A. 

      Return springs

    • B. 

      Square-cut O-ring

    • C. 

      Hydraulic pressure

    • D. 

      Centripetal force

  • 5. 
    The friction material on disc brakes are called what?
    • A. 

      Pads

    • B. 

      Shoes

    • C. 

      Stoppers

    • D. 

      Asbestos

  • 6. 
    The two main types of drum brakes are called Duo-Servo and...
    • A. 

      Single-Servo

    • B. 

      Shoe-type

    • C. 

      Non-Servo

    • D. 

      Haploid

  • 7. 
    What is the function of the metering valve?
    • A. 

      Measures how much brake fluid needs to be added to master cylinder

    • B. 

      Measures amount of hydraulic pressure is applied to front and rear brakes

    • C. 

      Measures amount of hydraulic fluid lost to evaporation

    • D. 

      Delays front brake application until rear brakes are applied

  • 8. 
    What does the proportioning valve do?
    • A. 

      Automatically mixes water into brake fluid for correct dilution

    • B. 

      Equalizes amount of hydraulic pressure is applied to front and rear brakes

    • C. 

      Produces ‘feedback pressure’ to brake pedal.

    • D. 

      Limits hydraulic pressure to rear brakes to prevent wheel lock-up

  • 9. 
    Pressure differential switch does what?
    • A. 

      Detects loss of pressure (leak) in a circuit and turns on warning light.

    • B. 

      Electronically controls hydraulic pressure to front and rear brakes.

    • C. 

      Electronically delays the application of the rear brakes

    • D. 

      Electronically delays the application of the front brakes

  • 10. 
    Why are drum brakes easier to use as parking brakes than disc brakes?
    • A. 

      They provide better friction for difficult parking situations

    • B. 

      The hydraulics are less likely to fail than on disc brakes

    • C. 

      It is easier to activate drum brakes using mechanical means

    • D. 

      The front brakes are used more in parking brake situations
