How Christian Brothers Automotive Can Help
Identifying Brake Issues: Signs to Watch Out For
Your brakes may exhibit warning signs that indicate potential problems. Stay vigilant and look out for the following symptoms:
- Unusual squealing or squeaking sounds
- Grinding noise when coming to a stop
- Steering column shaking
- Spongy brake pedal
- Vehicle pulling to one side when braking
- Wobbling or vibrations at highway speeds
Common brake issues often arise from worn brake pads or rotors. Brake pads create friction to slow down your vehicle, while rotors disperse heat to prevent overheating. If either of these components is damaged, our skilled technicians can replace them efficiently.
Another common culprit for brake problems is low brake fluid. Brake fluid amplifies the force you apply to the pedal, allowing your vehicle to slow down or stop effectively. It also protects the internal metal components of your braking system from corrosion.
