Ford Brake Repair or Replacement

Ford Brake Service in Mechanicsburg

Your car's braking system is as important, if not more important, than your engine. We need the brake system to slow us down or stop us no matter the vehicle we drive, the speed we're going, or the driving situation we're in. The best way to ensure your car's brakes are working properly is to have the whole system routinely maintained and serviced.

Drivers all throughout the Mechanicsburg and Harrisburg areas know their brakes are one of the most important components to their vehicle. However, do you know how to inspect or repair your brakes? Learning a little bit about your vehicle's brakes can help you spot an issue you'll need to have corrected, so they can function properly and you can effectively stop your vehicle.

How Do I Know When My Car's Brakes Need Service?

Every vehicle will show warning signs when your brake system needs to be repaired. Here are a few red flags that you'll want to pay attention to.

  • Spongy Brake Pedal - When you press the brake pedal, does it go all the way down to the floor before it slows the vehicle down? If so, something may be wrong with the brake fluid or brake line. You'll want to make sure that the fluid is filled, clean, and not leaking and that the brake line is working properly
  • Shuddering or Shaking - If your car shudders or shakes when you apply the brakes, this is a warning sign that something is wrong with the brake rotors. You'll want to have them inspected and/or replaced.
  • Squealing - Does your car make a loud squealing noise whenever you use the brake pedal? If so, this is a sign that your brake pads are worn or wearing. You'll want to have them replaced as soon as possible.
  • Warning Light - If a red or orange brake service warning light appears on your dashboard, don't delay to schedule a service appointment.
