Owning a vehicle requires a lot of responsibility aside from just knowing the rules of the road. In addition to being a good driver, it is important that the vehicle you’re driving have annual inspections to determine all the vital components are in working order. One such area of concern should always be the brakes.
All drivers understand that there are a few simple things you need to do in order to maintain a well-balanced vehicle. Keeping the vehicle in top shape is important, especially the braking system which must always undergo an inspection, either by you or a professional. There are a few simple things that a vehicle owner can do to help prevent those expensive brake jobs from being much worse.
Driving a car around with bad brakes is not only dangerous to yourself but to others on the road. Worn out brakes are especially hazardous whenever the conditions on the road are slippery due to rain or snow. But first, you should familiarize yourself with the warning signs that show brake trouble ahead if you ignore the problem.
The first you’ll notice when something’s wrong with your brakes is the warning light inside the dashboard. Most cars have a warning light that will let you know when the brake pads need to be replaced. However, these warning lights also indicate that it might just mean that you are due for an inspection.
A foreign noise such as squeaking, squealing or grinding can be a major indication that it is time to get the brakes looked at. Usually, these sounds occur when the brake pads are worn down and the braking system is making contact with the rotors. This is metal that grinds with another metal (creating the sound) that can lead to very expensive brake jobs if the rotors are damaged.
If the brake rotors are uneven or faulty it can lead to a wobble when you apply the brakes. You will feel it in the steering wheel when you drive and apply pressure to the brakes. If the rotors aren’t smooth, it can be hazardous when trying to stop the vehicle. Over time all rotors become uneven due to heat, debris and other factors that cause excessive wear and tear.
Leaking fluid. A good indicator of brake line failure is when you see a pool of brake fluid underneath your car. This is a clear indicator something is wrong and should be looked at right away. Without enough brake fluid in the system, it can create a lack of pressure buildup which causes a loss in power of the braking system.
If your vehicle is pulling to one side when braking it is a sign that there could be trouble. This is due to either a faulty brake hose which should always be checked or a caliper applying to much pressure on one side, resulting in uneven braking.
The braking system usually has plenty of warning signs that will let you know if a problem exists. It is always best to be proactive when it comes to taking care of the brakes since that is one of the most important components of any well-functioning vehicle. Keep these tips in mind to help prevent any brake mishaps and to keep them in good working order.
