At Pecheles Ford, we've generated a reputation for ourselves by offering drivers fast and professional brake service in Washington, NC. Our customers have an understanding of the importance of keeping their brakes in good working condition. We understand the value of doing those vehicle repairs in a timely manner, so that you can get back behind the wheel. Your car's braking system is imperative to the safe operation of your car, truck, or SUV. If you believe that there might be an issue, you should have it inspected immediately by one of our automotive technicians.

Brake Pads

When you bring your car in for our multi-point inspection, one of the first items we'll examine are the brake pads. These essential parts push against the rotors when you press downward on the brakes. The pressure brought on by the brake pads will slow down the rotation of the wheels and inevitably stop the vehicle. As you can envision, there's a lot of friction and heat involved in slowing down your car or truck, and the brake pads slowly wear down over time.

In the instance that your brake pads are exceptionally low, you might hear a high-pitched screeching noise whenever you push on the brakes. That sound is generated by a small section of metal on the brake pad that's developed to alert drivers when the pads are critically low. If, or when, you come across that sound when you push on the brakes, you need to take your vehicle to Pecheles Ford to have your brake pads changed. In the absence of working brake pads, your car won't be able to stop properly, and it might contribute to additional damage to the rest of your vehicle.

Brake Rotors

As mentioned in the section above, your rotors are the portion of the vehicle's braking system that the brake pads push against to decrease the speed of your car. These round, metal discs are connected to your tires and are specifically crafted to dissipate high temperatures and cool down as fast as possible. Regardless of their advanced design, after some time, these parts can become worn down or distorted. Issues with your rotors are intensified when your brake pads aren't functioning accordingly. That's why it's critical to have all the parts of the braking system checked out by a Pecheles Ford technician to find the accurate source of the problem.

Brake Fluid

As you might already know, your car uses numerous different fluids in order to run smoothly. Each individual type of fluid has been particularly designed to carry out a highly particular job in your vehicle. Brake fluid, as the name signifies, plays a vital role in the successful operation of the braking system. Anytime you hit the brakes, pressure forms in the fluid lines, which is then relocated to your brake pads. If there happens to be a leak somewhere in the brake fluid line, your car or truck could possibly have a tough time stopping, or, worse, not stop whatsoever.

At Pecheles Ford, we acknowledge that sustaining a well-functioning braking system is as important as putting on your seat belt.
