Dear customer, did you have the abs pump checked?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
abs no problem with it
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 8 days ago.

Dear customer, the abs are in charge of the braking system, if you have problems with this and you have done all the checks you mentioned, the next step would be to check this pump.

pump ok

Dear customer, did you check the abs pump?

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 8 days ago.

Dear customer, as I told you before, in my opinion you should have the ABS pump checked, as the whole line was changed and checked, the brake cylinder was changed, but you do not mention checks to the ABS pump even though the problem was due to overpressure, which seems to me unacceptable, as when this kind of problem occurs this is the first thing that should be checked, if you wish you can give me more details, about the checks made by the mechanics or if any error code was obtained.
