Why you should know about brakes.
Whenever possible, you always want to apply your brakes well in advance of where you intend to stop, so your braking process is gentle and smooth. But this isn’t always possible. When you do have to slam on your brakes, you need them to work.
Your brakes are a collection of components, not one single part. All these components must work together to apply sufficient friction and resistance to your wheels to stop them from turning. Because your brakes are an intricate system, brake service can sometimes be complex and should be repaired or replaced by a professional, knowledgeable in the entire braking system.
At McPhail Auto, we provide comprehensive brake services and expert brake repair. We can handle brake issues such as:
- Squeaking, grinding, and noisy braking
- Pulsation problems
- Drum maintenance
- Inspecting and servicing rotors
- Calipers assessment and service
- Brake pad inspection and replacement
- Brake line service and hydraulic fluid top-ups
- Brake fluid flushes
- ABS (anti-lock braking system) inspection
- And more!
Why do brakes need frequent service?
Braking is a strenuous process, even when it goes smoothly. Braking puts a great deal of stress on multiple components within your brake line, so the need for brake repair is common. Brake pads in particular undergo a tremendous amount of friction, so they often need to be replaced. Braking can wear down other components over time as well, such as tires, wheels, and calipers. At McPhail Auto, we can assist with inspection, repair, or replacement of all these components.
It’s wise to pay attention to any potential signs of brake problems while driving. Signs of brake trouble include pulsations, high-pitched squealing noises, delayed braking, and more. Ignoring these signs of braking trouble is unwise, potentially dangerous, and essentially, the braking equivalent of ignoring your check engine light.
Sticking to a brake maintenance schedule is imperative. Routine brake maintenance includes having your ABS inspected, preferably every autumn.
Furthermore, brake maintenance can save you money by preventing the need for costlier brake repairs in the future. This maintenance can also increase the tread life and longevity of your tires.
