Stop Your Car With Reliable Brake Repair Service
The most basic way to understand the way your brakes work is to know that the system operates on friction. Pressure from your foot is transferred down a line of hydraulic fluids to amplify the force of your foot and apply pressure to the pads of the brake and stop your wheels from spinning. As we all know, friction equals heat, and heat causes wear and tear over time. The best way to ensure that your brakes do not wear past the point of usefulness is to pay close attention to a few things.
Brake Pressure: If you notice your brake pedal falling too low when you apply pressure or is requiring excessive force to push down you may have an issue with contaminated brake fluid. Usually, this kind of issue is easily fixed by bleeding the brake lines, replacing the fluid or calibrating the vacuum level in the brake booster.
Noisy Brakes: If your brakes are making any kind of noise, you can assume that something is wrong. Whether it is a sharp whine, low groan or strange “clunk” sound, you had better consider getting brake repair.
Pulling or Grabbing: When you release the brake pedal, your brakes should immediately respond by letting go and allowing the wheels to spin freely. If your brakes continue to hold after you release the pedal it is most likely caused by failing brake pads or a damaged brake disc and you need to get brake repair soon.
