Potential Signs of Trouble
New, unusual noises or strange sensations when you're slowing your vehicle are often warning signs that you need brake repair. It can be helpful to know what exactly to look for so you know when to call in the experts.
Do you hear grinding, squeaking, or squealing when you apply your brakes? These could be indicators of worn brake pads. Your vehicle's brake pads are made of metal. When they're worn, metal may rub against metal, causing the obnoxious noises you hear.
If you notice a brake fluid leak or have a "soft" pedal when you try to brake, your car might have a master cylinder problem. A bad master cylinder can allow your brake fluid to escape, resulting in insufficient pressure to ensure that your vehicle can stop properly.
Soft Brake Pedal
Make a mental note of where your brake pedal stops when you depress it. The pedal should stop about an inch or inch and a half from the floor if your auto has power brakes. In a car with manual brakes, the pedal should stop at least 3 inches from the floor.
Wobbling, scraping, or vibrating during braking can point to uneven rotors. The rotor should be smooth and evenly thick. If it is uneven, your braking ability is reduced.
