Brake Repair Services In South Salt Lake, Utah

We often take our braking system for granted, neglecting to get it inspected and instead just expecting it to work every time we press the pedal. And while the brakes are designed to weather years of use, it’s important to have them routinely serviced to ensure you have many more safe miles ahead of you.

Even if you don’t notice any changes to your brake’s performance, bring your vehicle to Master Muffler South Salt Lake for a visual inspection every six months or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first. If you tend to drive more aggressively, you should increase the frequency of your brake checks.

The expert mechanics at Master AutoTech can help keep your brakes in tip-top shape, ensuring your safety for miles and miles.

Signs It’s Time to Repair or Replace Your Brakes

What are the warning signs that your brakes need some maintenance? There are some you can see, feel, and hear. Here are some indicators that you need to take care of some repairs or replacements in your vehicle’s braking system:

Visible Wear

If you look through your wheels’ spokes, you can actually see your brake pads. They should be at least ¼” thick, so if they’re thinner than that, it’s time to get them replaced. Otherwise, you’ll have metal grinding against metal, which is never good.

Screeching Sounds

When you’re driving with compromised brakes, you’ll probably hear it. For example, if your pads are worn, the high-pitched screeching serves as a warning that the pads are too thin and should be replaced as soon as possible. If your pads look good, though, it could be an issue with the rotors. If you’re not sure what’s causing screeching, whining, or grinding noises when you brake, visit the team at Master AutoTech South Salt Lake for diagnostics.

Vehicle is Slow to Stop

Does it seem like there’s a delay when you press the brake pedal while driving? If the system doesn’t feel as responsive as it should, you might have a leak in your brake fluid line. Another sign to look for is a yellowish-brown puddle under your vehicle; this could be brake fluid that’s leaking from your car.

Vibrations When Braking

If your car shudders or vibrates when you attempt to brake, it could be due to worn or damaged rotors. Sometimes you only notice the weird sensations in the steering wheel, but other times the whole car can feel like it’s rocking. In either case, it’s definitely time to have your brakes looked at.

If you notice any change in your vehicle’s performance when it comes to braking, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with our South Salt Lake location. We’re here to help pinpoint the problem and set it right.

The Braking System and Its Parts

As an auto shop that offers pretty much all types of repairs, we’re ready to handle anything your brakes throw at you. So what’s in your vehicle’s braking system? Let’s take a look.

Brake System

We’re equipped to service your brake system as a whole, including the intricate hydraulic system that allows you to 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. We can flush and repair your brake line if necessary.

Brake Pads & Rotors

These are what push together to stop your wheels when driving. When there’s a problem, we can make adjustments and repairs to get the friction just right for optimal performance.

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. If you suspect a problem here, let’s get it diagnosed today.

Brake Services From Master AutoTech

Brake Inspections

Not comfortable doing a visual inspection yourself? Let us do it for you.

Brake Pad Replacement

Time to swap out your brake pads? If you’ve hit 25,000 miles, bring your vehicle in for routine replacement to ensure your brake pads are in good shape.

Rotor Repair & Replacement

The rotor is what the brake pad presses against when you brake your vehicle. Due to all the friction, it’s advised you replace rotors between 50,000 and 70,000 miles.

Brake Fluid Check

Did you know it’s recommended to flush your brake fluid every two years, or every 30,000 miles (whichever comes first)? If that time is now for you, come see us at our South Salt Lake Master AutoTech location.

Master Cylinder Repair & Replacement

Typically, the master cylinder is designed to last the life of your vehicle. If, however, you neglect to service your braking system regularly or you get in an accident, it’s a good idea to have the cylinder inspected to ensure all is well.
