The brake system for your vehicle plays a critical role, and it should be inspected routinely to ensure that your brakes work when you need them most. A typical brake system is made up of many components that rely on each other to function properly to ensure proper braking. The combination of hydraulic pressure and friction from the pads, rotors, shoes, and drums is what allows your vehicle to stop. The following diagram shows different brake components.
A brake inspection is recommended every 12 months or 12,000 miles ensure that your components are wearing evenly and to make any minor adjustments to the parking brake cable.
DRAG - Sticking brakes, hot wheels or engine which seem to have lost power. Auto brakes may be failing to release; the condition can reverse itself, leaving you with no brakes at all. This indicates brake service is needed.
PULL - Vehicle pulls to one side when brakes are applied. Maybe from underinflated tire, misadjusted brakes or brakes are in need of car brakes repair.
HARD PEDAL - Requires extreme pressure to make brakes function. Can indicate power brake trouble, restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings
BRAKE LIGHTS - Red indicates a problem as simple as the parking brake on, or low fluid, to something as serious as a hydraulic system failure. Yellow indicates deactivation of your ABS system. While your brakes should work, it does require inspection at the first opportunity.
VIBRATION - Brake pedal, steering wheel or entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates when the brake is applied. May indicate need to resurface disc brake rotors - or signal a serious problem with a loose component or faulty steering mechanism.
SQUEAL - Brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise. Some noise is normal but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your brakes need of car brakes repair.
LOW PEDAL - Pedal nearly touches floorboard before brakes function. May activate your brake warning light. The problem may require a simple adjustment - or indicate something much more severe.
GRAB - "Touchy" brakes that grab with the least pressure. May indicate a problem as simple as grease or oil contaminated linings - or as dangerous as loose or broken component ready to fail in an emergency.
Fortunately, regular brake inspections and maintenance can help you avoid dangerous situations and provide peace of mind when you're on the road.
