How Brakes Work

Automobile brakes

Your car’s braking system is relatively simple. The three main components that make up a brake system are as follows:

  • Discs
  • Calipers
  • Pads

All of these parts are connected by a hydraulic system that gives you control over the brakes on all four tires from the brake pedal by using hydraulic fluid to create compression. Hydraulic fluid enables the force pushed on your pedal to be magnified enough to slow down the kinetic energy of your vehicle. This force, mixed with the friction from the brake pads and the distribution of the hydraulic system, allows you to stop safely and predictably when you need to.


Whether your brakes are worn and squealing or just need a tune-up, let us fix your brakes.  We’ll have you safely on the road in no time.

Warning Signs of Brake Problems

There are several signs that your brakes may be malfunctioning. If you notice any of these signs, please don’t hesitate to give us a call right away to ensure that your car can be driven safely. It’s never worth ignoring possible brake issues.

  • Screeching Sounds: Generally, these sounds indicate that your brake pads are worn down and need to be replaced. It’s important that this is done quickly, as worn down brake pads will only get worse, which can cause damage to other components of your vehicle.
  • Vibrations When Braking: Vibrations in the brake pedal or steering wheel can often occur because of brake issues, especially if there is something wrong with the alignment of the rotor.
  • Burning Smells: Bad odors that emerge when you use your vehicle are never good. Overheating brakes can happen if you are overusing your brakes or something is misaligned. This could mean a variety of things are wrong, and you should have your brake system looked at right away.
  • Pressure Fluctuations: Whether your pedal is feeling softer or harder, such changes in pressure often means that something is wrong with the hydraulic system, including issues with the master cylinder. This type of issue can be very dangerous and should be checked as soon as possible.
  • Brake Light Indicator: Lots of vehicles today have a brake light indicator that turns on when the system recognizes something is wrong. When this happens, it’s a good idea to have the system looked at.
