Why Repair Your Vehicle's Brakes?

Driving around British Columbia can put stress on your vehicle. When you press on your brakes, you expect your vehicle to stop. If you do not maintain your brake system, your brakes can fail you and put you and your passengers in danger. The brake system in your vehicle is one of the most important components for you and your passengers’ safety, but it often gets neglected.

Symptoms of a Poorly Perfoming A/c System

Here are several common signs that indicate potential issues with your brakes:

  1. Dashboard Lights or Warnings: Pay attention to any illuminated BRAKE, ABS, or Check Engine lights, as they may indicate problems with your brakes.
  2. Leaking Brake Fluid: If you notice any fluid leaks near your wheels or under the vehicle, it’s important to have the source of the leak inspected, as it could be brake fluid.
  3. Change in Brake Response: If you experience a change in the way your brakes respond, such as taking longer to stop or needing to press the pedal farther than usual, it is a classic symptom of brake trouble and should be addressed promptly.
  4. New Noise When Braking: Unusual noises while braking, such as squealing, grinding, squeaking, or rattling, should be investigated. These sounds often indicate issues with brake pads and rotors. If you hear hissing sounds, it may indicate a brake fluid leak problem.
  5. Shaking or Vibration When Braking: If your vehicle shakes or vibrates when you apply the brakes, it could be a sign of warped rotors. However, it’s important to note that a slight pulsating sensation while braking is normal when the ABS is activated.
  6. Soft or Spongy Brakes: If your brake pedal feels soft or spongy and requires more effort to engage, it suggests a problem in the brake fluid lines or brake shoes. It is important to have this addressed promptly to ensure proper braking performance.
  7. Hard or Stiff Brakes: Conversely, if your brakes feel excessively firm or stiff, it could indicate contaminants in the brake fluid or a faulty seal in the master cylinder or brake booster.
  8. Engine Misfiring or Stalling: A bad power brake booster can sometimes cause issues with engine performance, leading to misfiring or stalling.
  9. Vehicle Pulling to One Side When Braking: If your vehicle pulls to one side while braking, it may be an indication of faulty brake hardware or an uneven hydraulic issue. It’s important to have this diagnosed and corrected to maintain proper braking balance.

If you notice any of these signs, it is recommended to have your brake system inspected by a qualified professional to ensure your safety and address any necessary repairs.

How regular should brake pads be serviced?

The lifespan of your brake pads or shoes can vary significantly depending on factors such as your vehicle type, climate, brake components, and driving habits. Typically, they can endure anywhere from 20,000 to 80,000 miles. Brake fluid, on the other hand, tends to remain effective for approximately 2-5 years. Due to the uncertain nature of replacement intervals, it is crucial to conduct regular brake inspections. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual for the recommended brake inspection schedule, which often suggests checking them every 10,000-12,000 miles or annually.

Drive safe in British Columbia

As you know, brakes are very important to the safety of your vehicle. You should have your brake and brake pads inspected at least once a year to make sure they are working properly. Our technicians can properly do a full inspection to make sure your pads are not worn down. Your brake fluid should be checked regularly. This fluid is essential to all the working parts of the entire brake system.

We suggest that you as the driver of your car should listen and watch for warning signs of weakness of your brake system while you are driving. This could be strange noises or less pressure when you press your brakes. If you notice any of these signs, bring your car into our shop immediately to be checked out.

You can take precautions to help preserve the life of your brakes. Give yourself time to slow down and avoid braking suddenly as well as invest in good reliable brakes. The investment will be worth it to ensure the efficiency, safety, and durability of your brake system.
