Brake maintenance is one of the most critical vehicle safety measures that you can take to ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers. When it comes to brake maintenance, there are obvious signs that your brakes need to be fixed and that they require your best attention as soon as possible. One mechanic fact is that all brake repair and brake replacement shops in Modesto, CA are not the same, and that’s why at Auto & Fleet Mechanic, we understand that excellent service doesn’t have to leave out cost-effective solutions.

If you notice that your brakes make a squealing sound or screeching when you bring your car to a stop, you may need brake services immediately as these are signs that your brakes require immediate attention. The best thing to do any time you notice any irregularities in your vehicle’s braking performance is to consult a certified technician for a thorough brake inspection and repair. Our technicians are the best you can ever get; they have been fixing cars of various makes and models for over 20 years and will readily take on your braking issues.

HOW YOUR BRAKES SHOULD WORK

The primary purpose of brakes is that, regardless of make, they are designed to counteract your vehicle’s movement. The moment you press down your brake pedal, a lever sets off the master cylinder to release hydraulic fluid. This fluid then triggers a chain reaction that moves the hydraulic fluid from cylinder to cylinder to reinforce the small force initiated by your foot to bring your car to a complete halt.

COMMON SIGNS THAT YOUR VEHICLE NEEDS A BRAKE REPAIR

When discussing brake problems, there are common, well-known signs that are indicators that your brake needs urgent repair or replacement. We’ve all been there and know that a squeaky sound or shaky steering are signs that your brakes need to be fixed. These are not the only brake malfunctioning signs; there are many others, probably less obvious signs, your brakes may be showing that you shouldn’t dare ignore.

It is time to get a brake service inspection if:

  • Your vehicle pulls to the left or right when you brake
  • The brake pedal presses farther to the floor than usual
  • Your brake pedal seems spongy
  • Unusual vibrations or noises occur during braking
  • You have squeaking, grinding, or noisy brakes
  • Your car is pulsating or wobbling when you drive at freeway speeds
  • Your steering wheel is shaking
  • You’ve driven over 12,000 miles, or it’s been over a year since the last time you inspected your brakes
  • You’re close to or already exceeded the number of miles your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends for brake fluid exchanges.
  • Your dashboard displays a brake warning light.
  • Your Vehicle’s brake pedal responds slowly
  • Your vehicle no longer stops when you press on the brake pedal

Recently, manufacturers are making brake pads with a built-in metal component that creates a slight screech. Over time, the screech increases in volume to alert you that your brakes are due for comprehensive brake services or repairs. If you begin to hear a loud squeal, make sure you contact us at Auto & Fleet Mechanic for a full, 23 point brake inspection and possible brake repair.

UNDERSTANDING BRAKE PARTS & BRAKE INSPECTION

As a vehicle owner, one thing that you should know about your car is the different moving parts that make up your braking system. The brake creates stopping power, and by default friction when you press down on the brake pedal. This is a result of the brake pads being compressed against the brake rotor. This friction, or heat, is then dispersed by the rotor to ensure that the brakes are not overheating. The thing is, these moving parts are crucial to the functioning of your braking system. And what’s more? They both need adequate inspection whenever your vehicle or brakes are being serviced.

At Auto & Fleet Mechanic, we provide our clients with a full, 23-point inspection that includes a comprehensive vehicle check of brake functionality, Vehicle hoses, filters, belts, suspensions, struts, and shocks. Our comprehensive brake assessment will comprise of:

  • Fluids – we inspect brake fluid levels and leaks
  • Wheel cylinders – we check wheel cylinders for function
  • Rotors/drums – we determine if a replacement is needed
  • Brake hardware – we inspect the hardware for wear and tear
  • Brake hoses – brake hoses problems are common and require regular checking as they can wear out
  • Brake function - the measurement of pads thickness

WHY YOU NEED A BRAKE ASSESSMENT?

Without a doubt, a comprehensive brake inspection will allow you to:

  • Get your vehicle inspected by certified technicians who are experienced enough to identify and fix the issues affecting your braking system.
  • Get an outline of the work ahead, time estimates and parts needed
  • Get an estimate of what the necessary work will cost based on the problems that are unique to your brakes
  • Get options and recommendations on the best brake parts and accessories for your particular vehicle

REPAIR & REPLACEMENT OF BRAKE COMPONENTS

Like the vehicle itself, brakes are designed to wear out. Since brake pads rub on the brake disk to slow down or stop your car, it is more advisable to check for worn pads if you are experiencing any brake problems. At Auto & Fleet Mechanic, our technicians will carry out a full inspection to identify the underlying problems and repair what needs to be repaired and replace what requires replacement. In fact, brake pad repair is the most common repair job for vehicle braking systems.

WHAT YOUR BRAKE SERVICE WILL INCLUDE?

Although brake pad issues are the most common problem with a braking system, it is not the only issue that can be included in a comprehensive brake service. Depending on the result of the evaluation, our vehicle brake repair or replacement service may include:

  • Brake rotors/drums resurfaced
  • Brake caliper & rotor re-alignment
  • Brake fluid flush & replacement
  • Brake caliper replacement
  • Brake hose replacement
  • Brake master cylinder replacement

WE’LL PROVIDE YOU WITH HONEST BRAKE SERVICES

At Auto & Fleet Mechanic, we understand the importance of helping our clients reduce expenses, and we aim to provide you with on-time quality repairs at an affordable price.
