Marietta Brake Repair

Brakes are one of the most important safety devices on your car. If you have ever moderately lost your brakes in the past, you’ll agree that it is not something you want to go through again. Checking your brakes by a professional at least twice a year for wear and tear can protect you and your passengers. Also, it will help save you money by finding any damage before it becomes a costly repair.

Brake System Components That Can Fail - When to Get a Brake Repair Service

Marietta Brake Repair | Advantage Auto Services The master cylinder, the core of your car’s braking system, holds the brake fluid when it’s not being carried to the brakes from the brake lines. If the brake fluid starts to leak because the master cylinder is damaged or the brake lines are plugged, the fluid can’t be transported and the brake pads will become damaged.

The brake fluid itself can develop dirt and contamination when it attracts rust-causing moisture and debris. Brake fluid can also break down from extra heat. Clean brake fluid looks clear or slightly yellow, while dirty brake fluid may be black or brown. Dirty brake fluid can really damage the ABS brake systems internally.

The brake lines join to the master cylinder by a combination valve, which syndicates a metering and proportioning valve. It controls the pressure on the rear and front wheels and makes sure both sets of brakes are applied at the same time. A faulty combination valve may cause the wheels to lock up.

Brake shoes and brake pads are made of metal, ceramic or even organic materials, while the drums and disc rotors they press against are made of metal. Because the shoes and pads create resistance to stop and brake the car, they inevitable and progressively wear down over time and may wear away wholly, letting the attached calipers and cylinders grind against the drums and rotors to damage them. (Some pads have a metal strip that sounds a cautionary whistle when the pad becomes too damaged, but this strip only whistles when the car is in motion and the brakes aren’t applied.)
