Warped Brake Rotors Can Lead to Unsafe Driving
The brakes for your car are usually one of the hardest working components of your vehicle which is why it’s important to make sure they are always working properly. One of the first signs you can usually tell if your brakes are acting up is if you’re hearing a squeaking noise come from the front of your car when applying the brakes. If there is just a slight squeaking noise then the potential services and repairs shouldn’t be that expensive, however if you’re hearing a harsh metallic scratching sound then you may need to save yourself the trouble and bring your car in to the mechanics at 2J’s Automotive.
Loud noises coming from the brakes aren’t the only signs of damaged or worn out brakes. One way to tell if your automobile’s brake rotors are warped is if you’ve noticed the brake pedal slightly move up and down or you may feel your steering wheel shake lightly when applying the brake. Different cars have different rotors and pads so the severity of your brake problem can depend on the make and model of your car.
Your brakes rotors are constantly in contact with your pads and if you often drive in stop and go traffic then they can get very hot and eventually warp. You can run water to cool the rotors but if done too quickly they can warp and that can be a real problem.
