Brakes

 The brakes are one of the most important parts of a vehicle, so it's vitally important to always have a healthy brake system. Brakes have several parts-the pads, calipers, line, and more-and all need to be in good working order for you to drive safely.

It's important to get regular brake inspections to make sure your brake system is working well and take care of issues before they get worse, which can prevent problems from arising while you're driving. However, it's important to pay attention to how your brakes feel and be able to identify strange sounds or unusual pressure.

If you ever realize your brakes aren't responding as well as usual and you have to depress the pedal more for them to engage, you might have a leak in the brake line or somewhere else in the braking system. If you notice a puddle under your car, this could indicate a leak.

Brakes also might pull to one side, which could mean that there's junk in your brake fluid and you need to get your fluid flushed. It could also be evidence of uneven brake linings, which requires a brake adjustment.

Vibration is another sign of a problem, usually that the rotors are warped and need to be replaced. If you hear grinding, squealing, or growling noises when you brake, your brake pads are probably worn down and will need to be replaced. If you're able to look under your car, you can usually tell if the pads are getting thin-if they're under ¼-inch thick, it's time to get new ones.

Pay attention to your brakes-it's the best way to keep yourself and other drivers safe on the road!
