Inspecting Your Brakes

Can you inspect your brakes yourself? Sure! If you feel comfortable doing so, get to know your vehicle’s braking system by taking a look, listening for sounds while driving, and noticing how it handles when you’re on the road. Here’s how you can inspect your brakes yourself:

Stop, Look, and Listen

Take a look between the spokes of your wheels to visually inspect your brake pads. You can also get a glimpse of the brake rotor, which is made of metal. A good brake pad is at least ¼ inch thick; if you notice your pad is thinner, it’s time to replace it.

What sounds does your vehicle make when you drive? Screeching, grinding, and growling are indicative of a problem in the brake system. When the brake pads are worn, you end up hearing metal against metal, which is never a good sound.

Excessive vibration, shuddering, or pulling to one side while driving could also mean your brakes are damaged. Whether it’s worn pads or low brake fluid, these problems can make themselves known with a change in your vehicle’s handling. Additionally, if you feel a change in the resistance of the brake pedal while driving, your rotors might be warped.

Not comfortable making an assessment on your own? Master AutoTech Downtown Main in Salt Lake City is here for you. Schedule an appointment for an inspection and diagnostics today.

All About the Brake System

Here’s what you should know about your brake system:

Brake System

Your vehicle has an intricate hydraulic system that lets you stop your car whenever you push down on the brake pedal. It uses leverage, hydraulic force, and friction to stop your car’s movement.

Brake Fluid

When you push on the brake pedal, the pedal pushes against the brake fluid which expands through the brake system, causing a piston to push the brake pad against the brake disc on the tire. This friction causes the wheels to stop turning and the car to stop.

Brake Pads & Rotors

These are what push together to stop your wheels when driving.

Master Cylinder

The primary component of your brake system. These are meant to last the lifetime of your car, but malfunctions or damage can lead to them needing to be replaced.

What Does Master AutoTech Do?

We’ve always been a full-service automotive center, so you can expect only the best from our team of experts.

Brake Inspections

If you don’t feel capable of looking over your brakes to see how things are working, we’ll take a look at your brake system and let you know if there appear to be any problems.

Brake Pad Replacement

Newer makes and models have brake pads, which Master AutoTech can replace for you. If you have an older vehicle with brake shoes, we can handle that too.

Rotor Repair & Replacement

You can see the rotor behind your wheels, and these are what press against the brake pad to help your vehicle stop. Rotors can require replacement or resurfacing to provide optimal performance.

Brake Fluid Check

Brake fluid is an essential part of your braking system; if there’s a leak or a foreign object in the line, you can experience problems.  Brake fluid may appear light yellow to brown, so if you notice a puddle under your vehicle you should bring it in to us.

Master Cylinder Repair & Replacement

If a leak or malfunction has your master cylinder out of commission, we’re able to replace it or install a whole new one to ensure your car stays safe on the road.
