The Importance of Maintaining Your Brakes
Your brakes are one of the most important components of your Chrysler, Dodge, RAM truck, or Jeep. When they start giving you problems, bring your car, SUV, or truck to the Huntington Beach Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Service Center.
Brakes can feel weak or spongy. Even though they still slow or stop the vehicle, it takes longer. When you step on the pedal suddenly for an emergency stop, you seem to get less power. In extreme cases, you feel like you have to push your pedal through the floor before you stop.
These issues can not only be annoying and inconvenient but downright dangerous. You may assume that you need a certain distance to stop but because your brakes are weak, that distance grows long enough that you hit the car ahead of you.
The following are some common causes of these brake problems.
Not Enough Brake Fluid: Look at the brake fluid in your reservoir. If the fluid level is too low, fill the reservoir up to mark on the side.
Contaminated Fluids: Your brakes operate in a closed loop. However, contaminants can still enter the system. For example, air can work its way in through the tiniest hole, which can produce water from condensation. Unfortunately, you cannot really check for this problem. Bleeding the brakes and adding new fluid solves the problem.
Worn Pads: Your brake pads will start screeching before they wear down low enough to make your pedal press too low. But if the pads do get low, they can cause problems. Replace the pads as quickly as possible. Going for regular brake inspections can avoid this issue.
