Your Brakes Take a Beating
Over the course of a year, if you put an average of 15,000 miles on your automobile, you will use your brakes thousands of times; and with every use, brake components wear down, eventually impacting your ability to come to a safe stop. Although deterioration of your brake components is inevitable, with regular inspections and completing required maintenance, you can ensure that your brakes will provide safety for you and your loved ones.
Best practice is to follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for inspection intervals, as it varies for each vehicle. Or simply call Miramar Automotive & Transmission, and we can help guide you through maintenance recommendations for your specific vehicle; in addition to providing a thorough inspection of your braking system.
Brake systems, while being one of the most critical, are relatively uncomplicated. When the brake pedal is engaged, the brake pads press against the rotors to create friction and in turn, the brake rotor disperses the energy to keep the brakes from overheating. Both components are essential to the proper functioning of your braking system. Of course, the mechanism that applies brake pedal force onto the rotors is a simple hydraulic system that relies on fluid to translate force. This system consists of a master cylinder, which is directly connected to your brake pedal, the brake lines and the wheel cylinders, which apply pressure to the brake pads. If at any time your brake system is leaking, or you notice oil on the inside of the tires, this could signal that a total brake system is imminent. Contact Miramar Automotive and Transmission right away.
