Screeches, Squeals, Grinding and Pulls
Aside from a brake service light illuminating, one of the easiest ways to know your brakes need servicing is if they make a loud screeching, squealing, grinding, or other noise when you
are braking. This is typically an indicator that your brake pads are at the end of their life-cycle, but this could mean many other things as well!
A pull to one side when braking can also indicate brake service is needed; however this can be caused by a number of other things. When you are
unsure, it is always best to bring your car in to Integra Tire in La crete.
Pedal Pressure & Vibrations
Most vehicles use brake fluid systems to transfer pressure from the brake pedal, through the brake line, and ultimately to the components that slow
down your vehicle, whether they are discs or drums. You will need to apply firm pressure on the pedal to brake; however if you feel you have to apply
more pressure than normal (or have in the past), or must exert an uncomfortable amount of pressure for your vehicle to slow down, you may be leaking fluid. If you feel a vibration, which may
be accompanied by noise, your brake rotors may be warped. In either case, it is advised to bring your car in immediately to Integra Tire
in La crete.
Total Brake Failure in La crete
If your brake pedal drops to the floor, or takes an enormous amount of pressure to apply the brakes, it is not safe to drive. This typically indicates
a failed hydraulic component or line and will likely be accompanied by an emergency "BRAKE" light on your dash. Added brake fluid will only leak and could make the problem worse. You should immediately get a tow to your nearest
