Brakes often have wear indicators that produce noise when it's time to change the pads. Brake noise may sound like high pitch squealing or a grinding noise. Your brakes may feel different when you press on the pedal. If you think there may be a problem with your vehicle's brakes, have them inspected at Five Stars Auto Care in Clinton Township. Our automotive shop features quality ACDelco parts with a safety rating you can depend on.
When should I have my brakes checked?
Stopping distance seems to increase, causing longer braking distance, similar to braking at high speeds.
LOW BRAKE PEDAL
Brake pedal must be pushed unusually far to engage brakes.
BRAKE PEDAL PULSATION
Brake pedal fluctuates while brakes are applied.
Vehicle has a tendency to move right or left when brakes are applied. Brakes engage suddenly when applying steady pressure to brake pedal.
BRAKE FLUID SERVICE PROBLEM
Brake fluid becomes oxidized and contaminated over time and use. Heat and moisture cause corrosion on parts and brake fluid failure. This causes a spongy brake pedal and shows up in discolored brake fluid.
The entire brake system is inspected for leaks, master cylinder corrosion, worn pneumatic parts, harmful varnish build-up, broken or rusted bleeder valves, worn rotors and drums and air in the brake lines. All old brake fluid is replaced with BG Heavy Duty DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid. The result will be a longer lasting, more efficient and safer braking system.
There is no need to worry. Ask for a brake inspection when you bring your vehicle in for service. Ask your service advisor today about our BG protection plan. Please come in and see our service team at Five Stars Auto Care. Give us a call at (586) 790-3500 or visit us in Clinton Township.
