Do Your Brakes Need to Be Serviced?

First off, let us just say: If your brakes aren’t working perfectly, you need to visit a brake repair specialist. There is only one way your brakes should be working, and if they’re not working as well as they should you are only putting yourself and others at risk. Never let someone tell you that you’re overreacting because you are being proactive with your vehicle.

That said, not everyone is attuned to their vehicle the way a mechanic is. It can be difficult to spot early warning signs or minor brake issues. Performance Auto Center understands this. That said, there are a few things that you can watch out for while you’re driving through the Plainfield area:

Screeching or Grinding Brakes:

If you hear your brakes screeching or feel your brakes grinding, you should take your vehicle to Performance Auto Center as soon as possible. Not to sound alarmist, but these signs indicate that your brake pads have worn themselves down or even cracked and are now applying intense friction to your brake rotors.

Fluid Leaking From Car:

While some fluid loss is normal for a vehicle, there are certain kinds of fluid leaks that are troublesome. If your vehicle is leaking a yellowish fluid, you know you have a problem. That yellow fluid is your car’s brake fluid. You shouldn’t even attempt to drive your car is it is leaking brake fluid. Thankfully, a leak from your vehicle can be noticed when your vehicle is parked.

Car Accelerates Slowly:

If your car feels like it is dragging as you begin to accelerate, it could be a sign that your emergency brake has seized. Sometimes this happens because the brake fluid in your vehicle has frozen.
