Common Car Problems that Require Brake Service | Auto Repairs

auto repair 12-12-17 Share:

Your car's brakes are an essential safety component of the entire automobile system, and should be regularly inspected and maintained not only to keep you safe, but also to save gas and create better handling. It's important to know what to listen and look for when you think you have a potential brake problem that requires brake service. Read on for a few of the most common indications that your car may require brake service.

  • If your brake warning light comes on, it may mean a variety of things. First, make sure your emergency brake isn't on. If your emergency brake is not on, the brake warning light may indicate that your car is low on brake fluid or that your brake system is leaking, which may lead to complete brake failure.
  • If your car pulls to the left or right when you brake, your car may be experiencing problems with a brake bad or brake calipers.
  • A grinding noise from your car or wheel can be a result of foreign matter trapped in your brakes or may mean that your brake rotors need to be replaced.
  • If your car still moves forward when the brakes are applied, your brake pads or shoes may be worn out.
  • Squealing brakes may indicate normal wear and tear, dirt build-up, or even major brake problems, such as broken springs or returns, warped brake shoes, or brake adjusters in need of alignment.
