BRAKES

brake service

The safety of your vehicle is paramount, and the functionality of your brake system is a key component of that. Your vehicle’s brake system is composed of many different parts, each of which should be kept in excellent condition. For additional information on brakes and the services provided by saginaw street automotive, check out our frequently-asked questions below.

What are the components of a brake system?

The entire braking system includes brake pads, calipers, discs or rotors, and hydraulic components. Some vehicles may still have brake drums and shoes, instead of brake discs and calipers.

What’s the difference between the term “brakes” and just “brake pads”?

Brakes refer to the system. When pressure is applied to the brake pedal, the brake pads contact the vehicle’s brake rotors, and through friction, they slow or stop the vehicle.

How often should I change my brake pads?

The frequency at which you need to change your brake pads depends on a variety of factors, including your driving habits, environment, materials, and more. Some experts recommend changing them as frequently as every 10,000 miles for inner city stop and go driving, but in some conditions they may last as many as 70,000 miles. Consult your owner’s manual for the most accurate number and or give us a call at saginaw street automotive if you have any questions.

Why are my brakes squeaking?

Brake pads will typically begin to squeak at the end of their useful life. The noise is an important indicator to the driver that they should be checked or replaced immediately.

What are the signs I should get my brakes checked out?

If you experience any brake failure or odd noises, we’d recommend taking your vehicle to an expert. Symptoms can include squeaking or squealing, grinding sounds, vibration, soft (mushy-feeling) or hard (difficulty pressing down) pedals, worn pads, pulling your vehicle starts to pull to the right or left while you’re braking), or brake warning systems.

What is a complete brake job?

A complete brake job restores the entire brake system in the vehicle to good-as-new condition. Partial updates, such as just replacing the brake pads, would be considered an incomplete brake job. Getting a complete brake job ensures that all the parts are functioning properly and are in sync with each other, ensuring the most critical safety feature of your vehicle is functioning in pristine condition. Pads, rotors, calipers, fluids, checking your sensors and cleaning the braking system are all part of a complete brake job.
