Brake Repair in Powhatan, VA
We Fix Disc, Drum, and Anti-Lock Brake Systems
You’re always on the go, but sometimes you need to stop—and for that, you need good brakes. With regular brake maintenance, you can have peace of mind knowing that when you hit the brake pedal, you will come to a complete stop. Numerous parts make up the brake system: brake pads or shoes, lines and hoses, brake calipers and pistons, rotors or drums, a master cylinder, and brake fluid. Here at Murray Automotive in Powhatan, Virginia, we are experts on each and every component of the brake system. We can perform a myriad of brake repair and maintenance services, from a brake fluid exchange to a leak repair, in record timing and without breaking the bank. We are also equipped to repair the anti-lock braking system when needed.
Brake Repair and Maintenance
Regular auto maintenance helps tremendously with keeping your brakes in good working order. Brake maintenance consists of routine inspections, brake fluid exchanges (recommended every 20,000 miles or so), and brake pad replacement. Brake pads are the most common component to replace and can last anywhere from 20,000 to 80,000 miles. Because that’s a big mile span, it’s important to have your brakes examined on a regular basis. Unfortunately, maintenance can’t prevent all problems. Due to the nature of the brake system, parts can wear, break, or malfunction. Brake pads that aren’t changed when needed can lead to other issues, such as warped rotors, overheating, and total system failure. Additional problems that may warrant brake repair range in complexity: uneven rotors, low or leaking brake fluid, air or moisture in the system, a bad brake hose, or a faulty master cylinder are all issues we can handle.
Signs You Have Bad Brakes
You use your brake system constantly. When you’re driving your car, truck, or SUV, remember how your brakes feel so you can compare them down the road and determine when you might need brake service. Does it take longer to stop? Does it feel like you’re pressing harder on the brake pedal? If you experience squealing brakes, it’s likely an issue with your brake pads. Shaking and vibrations often indicate your rotors are warped. Additional signs that point toward needing brake repair include a spongy or soft brake pedal, grinding noises, squeaking, or your vehicle pulling to one side when braking. Any change in how your brakes respond is a surefire sign that something is amiss!
