Brakes

Len’s Automotive

Brake systems are designed to slow the vehicle’s wheel movement friction. There are primarily two brake systems, ABS and non ABS (anti-lock brake system). Both systems work on basic hydraulics and utilize a brake master cylinder (connected to the brake pedal in the car) that supplies brake fluid pressure to the front break calipers and rear wheel cylinder or brake calipers if so equipped.

Indications for needing brake service could include;

Squealing or grinding noises when using breakes. This could mean your brakes need to be adjusted or that your brake pads are worn.

Your dashboard’s Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) turns on. This is an indication that your brake fluid is low. You could have a leak in your brake line.

While braking, your car pulls to one side. This means that your brakes need adjustment, or there is brake fluid leakage, or your brakes are worn out and need replacement.

Your brakes are hard to press down or feel soft or spongy. Usually this means air has gotten into your break lines or you may have low brake fluid.

When applying your brakes, your steering wheel, brake pedal, or entire behicle begins to shake. If this happens, your brake rotors could be warped.

As the brakes are applied repeatedly over thousands of miles, the brake pads gradually wear down, reducing their ability to stop the car. But how do you know when it is time to change your brake pads? Our ASE certified technicians will gladly inspect the following brake components:

Disc brake rotors and pads

Calipers and hardware cables

Brake drums and shoes

Wheel cylinders

Return springs

Parking brake cables

Master cylinder

Brake fluid and hoses
