Your car has many safety features. The most important safety system is probably the least obvious — the brakes. It’s essential to make sure the brakes are working properly to keep your car driving safely. If you live in Burley, brake repair is quick and easy when you visit the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center in Jerome.
Brakes can help prevent an accident by slowing your car or stopping it on a dime. Faulty brakes are very dangerous. This is why it’s so important to take your Chevy to our brake repair service near Burley if you suspect your vehicle’s brakes are faulty.
If your car’s brakes are slipping, it’s a sign that it’s time for a brake inspection. Don’t put it off. Faulty brakes can cause an accident, resulting in injury to the driver, the passengers, another car’s passengers and pedestrians. Bring your Chevy in for a brake inspection to ensure it continues to operate safely. We’ll check the brakes and make sure they’re in top condition.
Another sign of brake problems is the sound they make. Brakes that are working properly shouldn’t make a sound when you step on the brake pedal. Listen carefully when you apply the brakes. Squeaky breaks can be caused by friction from the brake lining. This can lead to damaged brake pads, drums and rotors. It’s crucial to repair the brakes before it develops into a major problem. If the brakes make a grinding noise, it’s probably due to worn brake pads. Ignoring this situation will cause the drums and rotors to become damaged.
If you notice your Chevrolet pulls to the left or the right when you apply the brakes, it could mean there’s damage to the brake line. Or it can be a sign the brake linings are uneven or worn. If the brakes feel like they’re dragging, the brake fluid may be contaminated, or the brakes may be out of adjustment.
Your vehicle should stop easily when you apply the brakes. If you need to pump the brakes to get the car to stop, there may be air in the brake system, or the brake lines might have an air leak. This can cause the brake pedal to sink to the floor when your car is idling.
Other brake problems that can develop include a brake pedal that feels spongy, banging or vibrations when you hit the brakes, or a brake warning light that comes on.
