Your brake system is comprised of a long list of parts, and all of them are under a great deal of stress. The task of stopping a car, truck, or SUV which weighs thousands of pounds is certainly no easy one. Learn how to spot a brake issue, and know what to do about it, with Collegedale Exxon in Collegedale.

Brake problems come in a variety of forms. Worn brake pads cause squeaking or grinding noises, especially when the brakes are applied, but sometimes constantly. Typically, the sound will vary with the speed of your car, and braking will alter the noise you hear.

Bad brakes affect performance too. If you feel like you have to hit the pedal harder than normal to stop your vehicle, the brakes feel weak, or your car pulls to one side whenever you depress the pedal, you likely have a malfunctioning master cylinder, sticking brake caliper, or collapsed hoses. Symptoms may be erratic, sometimes only popping up occasionally, but should not be ignored.

Warped or worn rotors damaged by high heat or worn brake pads will cause your car to pulse or vibrate whenever you hit the brakes. This can be damaging to other components, decrease brake performance, and is generally annoying.

If you are having brake problems, get them fixed. Faulty brake equipment is irritating, dangerous, and stressful, and will only worsen if neglected. If you are experiencing any of the above problems, or your vehicle needs any other repair or maintenance, don’t hesitate to call or come by Collegedale Exxon . Our mechanics have the knowledge and ability necessary to get your vehicle repaired quickly, correctly, and efficiently. Whether you need a tune-up or an entire overhaul, our technicians will get you there.
