If your brakes are making a high pitch noise or grinding
sounds, it may be telling you its time for repairs.
when your car is pulling from one side to another while
braking it could be anything from a sticking caliper, worn
disc hardware, bad brake hose, miss adjusted brakes or even
low tire pressure or other safety components.
If you feel a shaking/vibration coming from the steering
wheel, brake pedal or the entire vehicle when the brakes
are applied, may indicate a warped surface on your brake
rotors or drums and may need to be serviced.
When your brake indicator light comes on it is an
indication of a problem and it could be a serious one. This
could lead to brake failure.
This condition could be signs of something simple or
serious. A brake pedal that almost touches the floor before
the brakes work could just indicate a need for an
adjustment or could be the sign of failing components.
Hard pedals often indicate damaged brake linings, power
brake trouble or other problems.
This could be anything from low brake fluid to a bad
component which could be a minor to a serious problem, but
in most case it will only cause your Anti lock brake system
to stop working and your regular brakes to work which will
allow to be able to go into a skidding stop on emergency
If your brakes grab with the slightest touch you may have
something loose in your brake system. Then again, it could
indicate something in the linings of your brakes such as
grease or oil contamination.
regular brake inspections should be part of your vehicle's
ongoing maintenance, helping to ensure its safety and
reliability. In fact, we recommend that you have them
inspected at least once a year or if you experience any of
you notice these symptoms (or any others), it’s a good idea
to have your brakes checked. If our inspection
reveals they do require repair, have someone explain
exactly what's required, what’s optional and provide you
with a written estimate before any work is done.
