The Basics Behind Behind Brake Inspection Services at Advanced Auto Care

Brakes use traction to push a car to a full stop. This friction produces a tremendous amount of heat that, over time, can kill the brakes and brake components. As a result, testing these components and maintaining proper operation has become a vital part of vehicle maintenance overall. While brake systems differ from vehicle to vehicle, the components also have the same responsibility and importance. Many common types of brakes today include drum brakes and disc brakes. Drum brakes are fitted with brake shoes, pedals, wheel valves, springs, and self-adjusting. Drum brakes are fitted with brake pads, rotors, calipers and hydraulic parts. The parking brake assembly, which prevents the vehicle from rolling once stopped, can be installed in either a drum or a rotor depending on the configuration of the rear brake system. Through a brake inspection service all of these parts, including the brake pedal and brake fluid, should be inspected to help ensure a vehicle is safe to drive.

Why Should You HaveBrake Inspection Services Performed at Advanced Auto Care?

Brake inspections are critical if driving conditions are to be safe. It will rely on your driving conditions and preferences to decide when to request an inspection. Our brake inspection is designed to locate, diagnose and address any problems while suggesting brake repair procedures. We can discover during a brake inspection that your brake system needs new brake pads or shoes, or the installation of new brake calipers or wheel cylinders. Alternatively, we would need to drain and clean your old brake fluid to remove dust, dirt and other pollutants from the brake lines. If you have cracks or heat damage on your brake lines and hoses, we recommend replacements. The rotors or drums of your disc or drum brake system can also need to be replaced to restore full braking power. Our repair methods and products can differ by inspection, so please contact us online or call us to learn more about the maintenance of the brakes.
