Brake Inspection and Service
Brakes are your most important car system. The safety of you and your family depends on properly maintained brakes. That’s why we offer free brake inspections and perform those inspections with every service. Our ASE-Certified technicians are experts in brake inspection and service.
Your Brake System
When you press on your brake pedal, it actuates a master cylinder in your engine compartment to send pressurized brake fluid to each wheel. At each wheel a brake caliper reacts to the brake-fluid pressure to force brake pads against a brake rotor. It’s the friction between the brake pad and the rotor that stops your car. Each of these components -- the master cylinder, brake fluid, calipers, pads and rotors -- are critical to safe brake operation.
Brake System Maintenance
Brake pads normally need replacing every 40,000 miles. When your dash light is on, you need to get the brake system serviced, and it’s probably time for new brake pads. Continuing to drive with the light on will cause the brake pad backing plates to scrape against the rotors. This will gouge the rotors resulting in higher costs to make repairs. Brake fluid deteriorates over time because it operates under high temperatures and accumulates moisture. Manufacturers recommend that brake fluid be changed every 20,000 miles or every two years.
A brake warning light is one indication that there’s a problem. But there can be others. Other indications of brake problems are any scraping sound when you apply the brakes, a pulsating brake pedal, if your car pulls in either direction or if you have to apply greater pressure to stop the car. If in doubt, come in and our skilled technicians will be happy to perform a free brake inspection.
