Here are symptoms of brake problems that you should take seriously – we recommend getting your car to a professional mechanic if you notice any of these symptoms:
- any time you feel that “brakes just don’t feel right”
- brake dashboard light is red
- brake pedal is slow to respond or spongy
- brake dashboard light glows amber ( usually this means that anti-lock brake system (ABS) is experiencing a problem)
- constant squealing or grinding noise during braking
When you bring your vehicle to Oceanworks for brake service or repairs, we first perform full diagnostic testing, to find out the root cause of the problem. We not only visually inspect brakes, but we measure thickness of brake pads (or brake shoes) as well. We check brake fluid for water content – brake fluid can absorb moisture from the air, and if the water content is too high, it can corrode other parts of the brake system. We also check rotors for warping or cracking. Naturally we inspect brake lines, and also look for any brake fluid leaks.
Once we know the nature of the problem, we will let you know what we found, and after you authorize repairs, we will proceed to obtain parts and fix the brake system. After repairs are completed we test brakes both in the garage, as well as on the road – we take your car for a road test to make sure brakes work correctly under real world driving conditions.
