Kuna Brake Repair
You want to feel confident that you and your family are safe when you’re driving. That’s the reason the folks at Edmark Toyota’s brake repair service near Kuna stress the importance of making sure your vehicle’s brakes are properly maintained. Brakes are probably the most important component of your Toyota’s safety system, allowing you to stop the car to avoid an accident. We’ll look at some of the symptoms that indicate your vehicle’s brakes need to be inspected.
If you notice your vehicle pulls to one side when you apply the brakes, it’s a sign that something’s wrong. While it might mean the wheels are out of alignment, the tires are damaged, or there’s a problem with the suspension, it can also be a symptom of a contaminated braking surface or stuck brake calipers. If you live near Kuna, brake repair service is fast and easy when you visit the Edmark Toyota Service Center.
Brakes that are functioning correctly are quiet. If you notice your Toyota’s brakes are making strange noises, bring your car in for a brake inspection. If you hear a grinding sound, it probably means the car’s brake pads need to be replaced. Driving with worn brake pads is hazardous, so take your car in for a brake inspection as soon as you notice any noises.
Brake Fluid Leaking
Leaking brake fluid is another serious brake problem. When the brake fluid starts to leak, you’ll notice brownish or light-yellow fluid underneath the vehicle. This needs immediate attention. Low brake fluid causes the brakes to lose pressure, making it difficult to stop quickly. This dangerous situation can cause an accident. Low brake fluid should trigger your car’s dashboard warning light.
If your car shakes or vibrates when you’re braking, the rotor may be warped. A pulsating sensation in the steering wheel is another symptom of a warped rotor. If you do a lot of stop-and-go city driving, you’re more likely to experience warped brake rotors. This can be repaired by replacing the bad rotor with a new one.
Brake Pedal Feels Strange
A brake pedal that feels soft when braking is an indication of a serious problem. There may be a problem with the hydraulics. This can be a result of too much air in the system or a low fluid level. On the other hand, if the brake pedal feels hard, it’s a symptom of a loss of power-assist in the braking system, either from a failed power brake booster or contaminated brake fluid. If your Toyota’s brakes don’t feel right, don’t delay. Bring your car to the experts at the Edmark Toyota Service Center for a brake inspection right away.
