What to do About Brakes?

If you suspect that you have an issue with your brakes, don’t panic, but take it seriously. If you notice any of the following, then get your brakes checked out:

  1. Your car doesn’t stop as normal when you brake. This can be an issue with your brake pads, or an issue with the brake fluid that doesn’t push enough force on the brake pads and rotor.
  2. Your brakes grind when you try to stop. This could mean that your brake pads have worn out and the bare metal of the brakes is rubbing against the metal of the rotor.
  3. You try to press on your brake pedal, and it doesn’t move. This could mean that your brake fluid is low, or there is an issue with the fluid lines, that won’t transfer enters from the hydraulics to the brakes.

Any of these could be simply signs of a problem that is just coming up, or signs of a serious issue. In either case, find a nearby mechanic to help you diagnose the problems with your brakes.
