Brake Systems

What can go wrong with brake systems?

Need your brakes serviced in Portland? Make Accurate Auto your first choice. Here are some common issues to watch out for:

  1. Brake fade happens when you are “riding” the brakes, as in using them too much, like if you are driving down a steep mountainous highway. The brakes don’t have the opportunity to cool down.
  2. Brake squealing, which means the padding has degenerated
  3. Normal wear and tear
  4. Leaking fluid
  5. Take note of any deviation from how your brakes normally feel when the pedal is applied; for example it pushes down too fast or feels spongy.

How are brake systems fixed?

Rely on Accurate Auto for the best brake service in Portland. We will give attention to each component of your brakes, including:

  1. Rotors
  2. Cylinders
  3. Hoses
  4. Calipers
  5. Brake pads
  6. Brake fluid

How can you keep your brake systems in good working order?

Accurate Auto recommends the following steps to keep your brakes at their best:

  1. Avoid quick stops whenever possible. Pay attention to motorists in front of you and coast or slow down with ample distance so you don’t have to slam on your brakes.
  2. Avoid “riding” your brakes, as in keeping them constantly depressed.
  3. Don’t carry unneeded excess weight which can make your car harder to stop.
  4. Make sure you check your brake fluid regularly.
  5. Watch for a brake warning light and have them inspected immediately!
  6. Have your entire brake system inspected regularly to ensure your pads haven’t deteriorated and that all other parts are working correctly.

Brake Systems 101

We all know what brakes do! Think about how fast your car is going and the split second you have to react if a kid on a bike veers into your lane, or the car in front of you suddenly stops. We depend on our brakes to stop the velocity of the car.
Accurate Auto is here to make sure that your brakes remain in great working order to keep you and your family safe.
When the brakes are applied, the pads that press against the brake drum or rotor turn the vehicle’s kinetic energy into thermal energy via friction. The car slows as the cooling of the brakes dissipates the heat. As brakes bear the heat caused by the energy of the car stopping, their temperature can rise to nearly 1,000 degrees. Brakes use fluid to transfer the power of your foot on the pedal to the actual brakes on the wheels.
