Brake Failure Warning Signals

There are warning signs to remind you to get them looked at or serviced.  These warnings can be felt and/ or audible. Spongy or soft pedal is a sign you may have an issue with your hydraulic system. This could be as complicated as failing wheel cylinders or calipers or as simple as needing fluid added in the master cylinder. There are many lines running to various components coming from the hydraulic system. If there are any leaks in these lines, it could cause a loss of air and fluid in the system, eventually causing complete brake failure. If your rotors are worn, it can cause the car to pull to one side because the brakes are grabbing harder on one side than the other or not at all. Grinding is caused when the brake pad runs out entirely causing metal to grind against metal and that seriously minimalizes your cars ability to stop and it destroys the rotors. If your pedal is hard to push then that could mean you have a problem in your power assist mechanism.  Vibrations are more than likely caused by brakes being heated up too much causing the rotors to develop hot spots; when those spots cool they contract and can cause rotors to become warped. Finally, if you hear a high-pitched squealing sound when braking that is the wear indicator saying it is time for new brake pads. Ignore any of these warnings and you could be in some trouble. Give Murray Automotive of Powhatan, VA a call if you have experienced any of these warning signs to schedule an appointment to get your brakes checked today.
