At Stephens Automotive Sales, our technicians offer numerous brake services to keep your car’s brakes in good shape.
Some indications that generate the need for a brake inspection may be obvious, however sometimes it may be unclear. Therefore, for your convenience, we have included some commonly noticed symptoms of brake problems below.
Unusual noises may be the most obvious indication that your brakes need servicing. Noises that occur when braking should not be ignored may include high-pitched squeals, soft ticking, loud clicks, and deep rumbles or grinding sounds. All these sounds are indicators of problems in the car’s braking system. The noises may occur due to a loss of brake fluid due to leakage, worn out brake pads, or scored rotors. If you encounter any of these, please bring in your car for a complete inspection.
When the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) warning light on the dashboard lights up, it may means the car is running on low brake fluid. Low fluid means that there may be a leak somewhere in your brake lines. To avoid any mishap, get this checked as soon as possible.
If your Car is pulling to one-side while applying breaks may indicate misadjusted brakes or brakes in need of repair. Do not ignore this problem, your car needs to be checked by an auto technician to identify and fix the issue.
If you notice that your brake pedal sinks to the floor while being pressed, it could be the result of a leak in the braking system, i.e. loss of brake fluid.
Braking problems may also occur if you notice extreme touchiness when applying the brakes. This could indicate a problem with an unevenly worn rotor/brake shoe, dirty brake fluid, or low brake fluids. In any case, please bring in your vehicle to get it inspected by our experienced technicians.
Vibrations that occur while applying brakes can be caused by a variety of reason. Do not ignore this problem, it may be a simple replacement brake pads or rotor. However, only after a detailed inspection you can learn the root cause of the vibrations when applying brakes.
Pedal vibration could also indicate misaligned wheels.
