Brake Repair

There is no denying that sound. We’ve all heard it. Whether it’s a squeak, squeal, grind or roar – your brakes are telling you it’s time to get serviced.  Luckily, Fixcarnow has been in operation in the Los Angeles area for over twenty years and has a location near your home or office.  Since our brake checks are always free, call us or pull in and let one of our ASE-certified technicians take a look at your brake system.  We will quickly be able to tell you if you need brake fluid, brake pads or rotor repair or adjustment.  One of the most importance maintenance tasks you can have performed for your car is to regularly have your brake pads changed.  The recommended time frame for changing brake pads is every 30,000 miles for the front pair, and every 60,000 miles for the rear pair.  Excessive or intense braking will require that you have them changed even more frequently.

It is extremely important that when you hear noises or experience something unusual from your steering or brake pedal you do not delay in getting your brakes inspected.  Noise is the key indicator that you have brake problems. If your brakes squeal when you touch the pedal, they either need adjusting or the pads need to be replaced. Keep up with your maintenance in order to avoid this problem. Keep in mind that brakes can squeal briefly when wet but if the noise persists, you should have your brakes checked. If your brakes are at the point where you hear a grinding noise – your problem is likely serious. It likely means that the brake pads have run through to the metal and it is now rubbing against the brake rotor. Brake pads will need to be replaced and possibly the rotors: an expensive job. In some domestic cars, the rotors can possibly be saved if they are not too damaged.  However, if you own a foreign car the rotors usually need to be replaced if they are damaged.

Once the brake warning light on the dashboard lights up, you will definitely have brake problems. This can mean low brake fluid but it’s wise to have it checked to make sure you do not have a leak in the brake line.  Pulling to one side when you hit the brakes or shaking or shuddering when you brake hard is another indication that there’s excessive wear on the brakes and you will need to replace them. If the brake pedal feels squishy, it indicates that air has entered your brake system. This is a dangerous condition and can cause an accident. A soft pedal also can indicate low brake fluid. The danger is that a soft pedal can quickly move to having no brakes at all.
