Brake Problems

There are several components associated with your brakes that can fail.

The Master Cylinder is the heart of the braking system. It holds the brake fluid when it is not being delivered to the brakes through the brake lines. If brake fluid leaks because the master cylinder is worn or brake lines are plugged or broken, the fluid cannot be delivered, and the brake pads will become ruined.

The brake lines connect to the master cylinder through a combination valve, which combines a metering and proportioning valve. It regulates the pressure on the front and rear wheels to make sure both sets of brakes are applied simultaneously. A malfunctioning combination valve may cause the wheels to lock up.

The brake pads, brake rotors, brake lines, calipers, and more can also contribute to brake problems with any of the following symptoms being things you should address as soon as possible:

  • Brake pedal feels "spongy"
  • Brake warning light is on
  • Pulling to one side or vibrating while braking
  • Screeching or grinding noise while applying brakes

Ignoring any of these signs can compromise your safety and we recommend you contact us right away.
