Understanding the Fundamentals of Brake Rotors, Pads and Fluid Pt.2

Understanding the Fundamentals of Brake Rotors, Pads and Fluid Pt.2

For the braking system of your car to function properly, the brake pads should absorb enough heat and energy. The efficiency of the brake pad would be reduced when there is too much wear. This can adversely affect the stopping power of any car. When the brake pads are worn out, respective indicators emit a scraping sound to let you know that these need replacing. Always make sure that the brake pads are replaced in pairs, or you will definitely have another can of worms to deal with later on.[...]

What is Rear Brake Drag?

What is Rear Brake Drag?

Rear brake drag can be an annoyance, and one that can get you in the kind of danger that every driver wants to keep well away from. One or both of the wheels in the rear can lock up when you press the brake pedal, usually causing the vehicle to skid, potentially resulting in an accident of some sort.

The Different Kinds of Braking

One thing too many drivers learn very late is the importance of knowing when not to brake. Skilled observation of the traffic around you should guide every move you make while behind the wheel, so that you are not blindsided by dangers you should have seen coming.

Cleaning Out the Rust on your Brake Rotors Pt 2

Cleaning Out the Rust on your Brake Rotors Pt 2

The brake rotors in your car form one of the quickest-rusting parts, mainly because of the way they are placed in a dark and bank location. Even with common car care, rust would build over time, and the get to the point that it prevents proper braking operation. Removing that much rust is easy enough; what is hard though, is getting rid of rust that has formed along the rotor's edges. It goes without saying that you should apply your brakes at least once in a while when behind the wheel. As for cleaning the hubs and rotors of rust, taking the following steps can accomplish that for you.[...]

5 Smart Ways to Protect your Brakes

5 Smart Ways to Protect your Brakes

Making changes to the way you drive can spell a significant reduction in the need for repairs and replacements, especially when it comes to the brakes. Healthier brakes let you enjoy better control over how the vehicle responds, keeping you safer on the road and less prone to lose your composure while driving. Casually allowing your brake pads to wear out, on the other hand, can saddle you with more than a few bucks worth of expense on replacement. Moreover, the longer you put this off, the higher the chances of other components breaking down as well, and before long this would make the car unsafe to operate.[...]



The Different Types of Brake Fade

The Different Types of Brake Fade

Brake fade is described as the temporary or complete drop in a vehicle’s braking power. It happens when the rotor and pad fail to create enough friction to slow wheel motion. The result of this usually involves unexpected or inconsistent brake failure, which often means simply that your car’s stopping distance goes up that one time. However, there is no guarantee that such instances will remain confined to safer driving scenarios – you could just as well be negotiating a hairpin when this happens – and that makes brake fade an immensely dangerous prospect.[...]
