How to Check Exterior and Brake Lights?

Frequently Asked Questions

Brakes are a critical safety system for a vehicle. The main function of brakes is to slow down or stop a vehicle by converting its kinetic energy into heat.

The two main types of brakes are disc brakes and drum brakes. Disc brakes consist of a brake rotor which is attached directly to the wheel. Drum brakes consist of a brake drum attached to the inside of the wheel.

Brake pads should typically be replaced after about 50,000 miles, but this can vary depending on your vehicle’s make and model, your driving habits, and the quality of the brake pads.

Signs that your brakes need servicing include a high-pitched squeal when you apply your brakes, a grinding noise, a vibration in the steering wheel, or the car pulling to one side when you brake.

Brake fluid is a type of hydraulic fluid used in hydraulic brake systems to create the pressure that slows or stops your vehicle. It’s important because, without it, your brakes wouldn’t work.

During a brake inspection, a mechanic will check the brake pads, rotors, shoes, drum, and brake fluid. They’ll look for wear and tear and ensure everything works properly.

A spongy brake pedal could be a sign of air in the hydraulic system, an issue with the master cylinder, or a problem with the brake booster.

ABS is a system that prevents the wheels from locking up (or skidding) while braking, thereby maintaining tractive contact with the road surface. It does this by constantly modulating brake pressure to each wheel through a series of rapid pulsations.

The parking brake, also known as the emergency brake, operates independently from the main brake system. It engages mechanical linkage to keep the vehicle stationary, especially when parked on a slope.

Brake fade is the reduction in stopping power after repeated or sustained application of the brakes, especially in high load or high-speed conditions. This is usually due to overheating.
