What Can Go Wrong?
Because it’s routine and usually predictable, drivers tend to take the ability to stop for granted. Along that line of thought, perhaps you’re wondering what can go wrong. Your automobile’s braking system works using hydraulic force and friction. Pressure applied to the pedal sends brake fluid from the master cylinder through the brake lines (hoses) to the cylinder at each wheel. Once there, it moves the brake calipers such that the brake pads contact the rotors (which is brake shoes contacting drums on wheels with drum brakes) to slow and stop your car. Thus, a leak anywhere in the system can allow fluid to escape, potentially decreasing the level to the point that your stopping power is compromised. If a leak is detected, a mechanic will need to check the brake lines, master cylinder, and wheel cylinders to ensure their integrity. It’s also important to note that exposing brake fluid to an outside air source is bad because this substance is hygroscopic (able to attract moisture when exposed to air). Another common repair is the need for brake pad replacement. Though the metal pads are durable, they are wearable items. When they become too thin, we’ll need to exchange them for new ones. Often, you’ll hear a squealing sound when you apply brakes that alert you to this condition. Further, you may notice grinding or vibration as you apply brakes. These signs can point to various troubles, including warped rotors or even a wheel alignment problem. Finally, don’t delay bringing in your vehicle for service if the ABS light illuminates (indicating an issue with the anti-lock braking system or sensor) or if your pedal begins to feel “spongy” (which may be a lack of fluid, air bubbles in the fluid, or an ailing master cylinder).
