Brakes are pretty much the most important safety device on your car. If you’ve ever partially lost your brakes in the past, you’ll agree that it’s not something you want to experience again. Inspecting your brakes twice a year for wear and damage can protect you and your passengers. Additionally, it will also help save you money by catching any damage before it becomes too costly.
Brake System Components That Can Fail
The master cylinder, the heart of the vehicle’s braking system, holds the brake fluid when it is not being delivered to the brakes through the brake lines. If brake fluid leaks because the master cylinder is worn or brake lines are plugged or broken, the fluid cannot be delivered, and the brake pads will become ruined.
The brake fluid itself can become dirty or contaminated as it draws rust-causing moisture and picks up other debris, or it can break down from excess heat. Clean brake fluid is either clear or slightly yellow, while dirty brake fluid may be brown or even black. Old and dirty brake fluid can damage ABS brake systems internally.
The brake lines connect to the master cylinder through a combination valve, which combines a metering and proportioning valve. It regulates the pressure on the front and rear wheels to make sure both sets of brakes are applied simultaneously. A malfunctioning combination valve may cause the wheels to lock up.
Brake pads and shoes can be made of ceramic, metal, or organic materials, while the disc rotors and drums they press against are made of metal. Because the pads and shoes create friction to stop the car, they gradually wear down over time and may wear away completely, letting the metal of the calipers and cylinders they are attached to grind against the rotors and drums and damage them. Some pads have a metal strip attached that sounds a warning whistle when the pad becomes too worn, but this strip sounds only when the car is in motion and the brakes are not applied.

Schedule Your Brake Inspections and Tune-Ups with Us
Because of the delicate balance between hydraulic fluid, rotors, calipers, and brake pads, the brakes on your car need to be regularly tuned up. On average, we suggest bringing your vehicle in for brake service every 4 to 6 months, or if you’re driving a lot, approximately every 5000 miles or 8000 kilometers. This will ensure that your brakes continue to function properly and keep you safe on the road.

What Is Included in a Typical Brake Job?
When you bring your vehicle in for a brake service, the goal is to restore it to good-as-new condition. The first thing we’ll do is run a series of diagnostic tests. These will determine any possible weak points that require tuning or repair. We will inspect the following:
- Brake lines
- Brake rotors and drums
- Brake pads service
- Brake hardware
- Brake fluid
- Master cylinder
Each component requires its own thorough analysis. Once we have an idea of the current condition of your brakes, we will then be able to draft an estimate for the parts and labor. In a typical brake service, you can expect us to replace the brake pads and the brake fluid. However, other components may require replacement as well, depending on levels of wear, corrosion, or damage.
