Brake Repair Tips

June 19, 2009


There are a lot of parts to your car you need to keep an eye on. In today’s times when autos have everything automatically, most of the times your cars maintenance gets neglected.  Believe me I have seen it all owning a San Diego auto repair shop.

After all, with cars that used to be cheap cars, like Hyundai’s being state of the art driving machines, it is easy to think nothing can go wrong with them.

That is a big mistake.  There are aspects of maintaining your car that still needs to be paid attention to.  Most car owners usually do take care of oil changes.  Although for the life of your car that is important, a lot of people forget their brakes.  Which is of extreme importance to their life and their family’s lives.

So let’s take a look at your brakes and knowing when it is time to change them because they have become unsafe.

First symptom of brakes that need to be changed are when they are grinding or scratching.  Usually this is an indicator that the metal plate that holds the brake pad is gone and now you have it rubbing against the rotor.  This is not a good sign and you want to have your brakes replaced as soon as possible.

Second sign is when you have high pitch noises or loud screeching made by your brakes.  A condition called glazed is what causes this.  This happens when a person constantly does excessive braking causing the rotors to get too hot.  The rotors are then burned.  

You fix this by going to a brake shop like my San Diego brake shop.

A third problem is vibrations.  When your rotors or drums are warped, when you are braking this will cause a vibration.   This occurs because of excessive heat and this makes them lose shape.  If this occurs, you have to replace your rotor.

A final issue to examine is when your brakes are pullling. What occurs when you are braking is your vehicle want to pull in one direction.  This occurs when the brake calipers are not being applied evenly.  This happens due to a fluid leak.  To find out which side is leaking, you are going to need a mechanic to take a look at it.  How you fix this is by replacing the caliper removing all the air out of the brakes.

These are the common problems with brakes.  When this does happen you need a shop that fixes brakes like we fix San Diego brakes.

When you take into account it’s your brakes which keep you from accidents, maintaining this part of your car you don’t want to neglect.
