UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF BRAKE MAINTENANCE

Posted by Jubayed Hossain Nabil on

Brakes are critical to ensuring our safety on the road. Vehicle owners should have a general understanding of its brake system and the brake maintenance it requires. This is part two of our overview brake system and what services brakes require.

 

 

Brake System Maintenance

Brake system maintenance allows your auto technician to evaluate the degree of brake pad wear and determine when replacement is necessary.

Brake Pads and Rotors

Brake pads and rotors are the point at which the braking system connects with the tires. Due to the stress of extreme friction, these components deteriorate more easily than others and need more frequent maintenance. It is important to inspect the condition and depth of the pads to make sure there is sufficient resistance.

Brake Fluid

A car’s brake system relies on a hydraulic fluid, commonly referred to as brake fluid. Flowing through the brake lines, brake fluid provides the power or force necessary to bring a vehicle to a stop. It is necessary to drain and replace brake fluid periodically because it absorbs moisture from the air and degrades over time. Changing brake fluid at recommended intervals will assure proper brake system functioning. Brake fluid changes are typically done every one or two years, however different vehicles will have different recommendations for best performance.

Since your vehicle’s brake system and brake fluid are so crucial to its safe operation, it is really important to have brake service maintenance done by a qualified professional automotive technician.

In addition having regular brake system maintenance performed, it is important to pay attention to any signs of brake problems and have them looked at right away.

Signs of trouble might include:

  • Strange Noises When Braking
  • Braking Causes the Vehicle to Pull to One Side
  • Brake Pedal Feels Odd or Spongy
  • Excessive Vibration When Braking
  • Jerking Sensation As Brakes are Applied

Along with these warning signs, the brake system service light on your car’s dashboard will illuminate if your on-board diagnostic system senses any problems. Take your vehicle in for a brake system inspection.

A lot of individuals who are interested in the automotive sector will be able to take additional action with the help of the information you supplied, therefore it is crucial to take note of it.

  • I’ll be going on a road trip with my friends next weekend, and since I’m the designated driver of the group, I need to make sure my car is in good condition before the trip. I appreciate you informing us that brake pads and rotors tend to deteriorate a lot more easily than other due to the stress of extreme friction, so it’s import to conduct maintenance for them frequently. I’ll be sure to remember this from now on while I look for auto services to take my car to for brake maintenance before our trip. https://www.stapleysgarage.com/brake_services.html

  • Recently, my sister started driving again, but she told me something’s off with her brakes. It really helped when you described how changing your car’s brake fluids helps keep it in good shape, so I’ll ask my sister about her car’s brake maintenance and share your article with her now.
