Brake Repairs and Service

Is your car having trouble coming to a complete stop or have you noticed the brake pedal getting closer to the floor when you press on it? If so, that likely means something isn't quite right with your brakes, which you should have checked out ASAP. Thankfully, you won't have to go far to find an experienced team of technicians to get your brakes in order.

At Stateline Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR), we have years of experience in repairing brakes near Tiverton, Rhode Island. In this article, you'll learn more about brake repair, signs that yours may require repair, and more.

Explaining the Braking System in Your Vehicle

Brake Repair and ServiceWhen your car moves, it creates what's called kinetic energy, and the brakes are designed to keep that energy in check. When you engage the brake pedal, it creates heat through a piston that's pushed into a master cylinder. From there, hydraulic fluid flows through multiple pipes at the same time, which then filters into the brakes.

It's important to know this because any one or more of these components may need to be replaced or repaired when you take your vehicle in for service.

What Signs Indicate Brake Repairs Are Needed?

Not sure what signs to look out for when it comes to needing your vehicle's brakes checked? There are quite a few, which include the following:

  • High-pitched squealing noises or grinding noises occur every time you press on the brake pedal.
  • The brake light illuminates on your dashboard or the sensor warning turns on, which could also mean that your vehicle is low on brake fluid.
  • Your vehicle vibrates when you press on the brake pedal.
  • The brake pedal becomes soft, it takes longer for the car to stop and/or the gas pedal is closer to the floor.
  • Your car moves to the side when you brake.
