Here are some typical brake problems to help you decide when to visit us at Silver Spring Automotive.
Squealing brakes usually means brake pad problems. Grinding metal-on-metal when you brake says you‘ve waited too long and could be damaging your rotors and/or your drums. It’s best to bring it to Silver Spring Automotive before the problem worsens.
Rotors are attached to your vehicle’s wheels in a disc brake system. When the pads grab the rotor and wheels, they come to a stop. This friction can cause grooves and cracks over the life of the brakes. Silver Spring Automotive can give your rotors a “like-new” condition to reduce squealing and wobbling. We’ll give your rotors a thorough inspection and let you know what your best options are.
A caliper straddles the disc and presses the brake pads against it. A bad caliper produces uneven braking, which causes your car to pull to one side when you brake. During inclement weather, your car could slide out of control, so it’s important to call Silver Spring Automotive.
A brake hose carries pressurized fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. Although they don’t need to be replaced often, a crushed hose; a slow brake; or one that leaks; could cause the entire brake system to fail. At the first sign of cracking or wear, call Silver Spring Automotive.
The technicians at Silver Spring Automotive say it’s essential to have your brake fluid flushed regularly. Brake fluid can absorb water which makes braking less effective. It also can be corrosive, which damages your system. Talk to us, and we’ll help you determine when it’s time for a brake flush.
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) is an automobile safety system that allows your wheels to maintain traction and contact with the road. This ensures that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Silver Spring Automotive, where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Please call us to make an appointment if you have any automotive needs. Please plan on dropping off your vehicle and not waiting at our location for it to be finished.
We would like to stay healthy so we can be here to serve you.
