Brake Maintenance Basics

Your car's brakimg system is just that: a system. It's not just one part; it's a variety of parts all working together to perform a vital function for safe driving. Routine brake maintenance involves a thorough checkup of all of these parts.

When you take your car in for brake maintenance in Langhorne, PA, these are some of the areas our service professionals will cover:

  • Checking and replacing pads - Brake pads are one of the most important parts of the braking system. They are the things that squeeze against the rotors in order to help stop the wheels when you brake. Because of the heavy friction and pressure on these parts, they can easily wear down over time.
  • Inspecting the rotors - Take a look at the wheels. Can you peek through the hubcaps? If so, you are probably peeking at your brake rotors. Rotors should be relatively clean - as clean as car parts can get - and should be free of rust. Typically, rotors can last through three or four sets of brake pads. However, every car and driving situation is different. Stop-and-go traffic during rush hour will take its toll on brakes much more quickly than other situations. It's always best to consult with one of our service professionals to know just how often to replace your rotors. It's just another reason to make sure your vehicle is getting the care it needs.
  • Checking brake fluid - It might be helpful to think of brake fluid as the lifeblood of your braking system. You want to make sure it is as healthy as it can be. Under some circumstances, air can leak into the brake fluid and cause your brakes to have a soft, spongy feel when you step on the pedal. Similarly, leaks in the brake line can cause fluid depletion. Neither scenario is good. Fluid levels should be checked regularly and maintained. It is also wise to change the fluid periodically, as it can become corrupted over time by heat and impurities.
