How do you know if your brakes are in need of inspection or repair? It may be time to have your brakes checked if:
1. Grinding (metal to metal).
Most often means that brake
pads or shoes are worn out.
2. A jerky stop or pulsation is a sign that brake rotors or drums are warped and need to be resurfaced.
What a severely worn rotor should look like. What a brand new rotor looks like.
3. Squeaking may indicate a brake pad wear sensor.
4. A soft spongy brake pedal may be telling you. There is air trapped in the brake hydraulic system.
5. A low brake pedal, generally indicates that drum brake shoes are out of adjustment, or worn out.
6. A sudden brake failure, where the brake pedal moves closer to the floorboard, may indicate a blown brake hose or a severe brake fluid leak.
7. A red brake warning light. Most often is telling you that the brake fluid level is low.
8. And amber brake warning light tells you there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system, (ABS).
9. When a brake pedal under light pressure sinks slowly to the floorboard, it is most likely, a defective master cylinder.
