Monongahela and Bridgeville Brake Repair

The brake system in your vehicle is a very important safety feature and should be kept in top working condition at all times. Without properly working brakes, you and your family’s safety is at risk. As soon as you notice something strange with your brakes, whether you notice a strange noise or a loss of power, have your brakes inspected as soon as possible. The experts here at Big G Tire Pros in Monongahela and Bridgeville, PA, are ASE master certified technicians for all makes and models of vehicles and can help with any problem that you may be experiencing.

If you notice that your brakes are squealing, this is usually an indication of brake pad problems. Completely deteriorated brake pads will produce a metal-on-metal screeching sound which is hard to miss. As soon as you hear a squealing or screeching sound, it’s time to have your brakes inspected. Driving with deteriorated brake pads causes damage to the rotors and will require additional repairs for those damaged components.

The brake rotors are attached to your vehicle’s wheels and are what connects the brake pads to the wheels. When you brake, the brake pads will grip the rotors and bring the rotors and wheel to a stop. Overtime, the rotors will begin to wear naturally just with regular use of your vehicle. The wear typically includes grooves and scratches which can be resurfaced by our experts back to top working condition.

The brake fluid keeps brake system components lubricated and helps to carry debris and build from parts. Overtime, the brake fluid will become dirty and will cause your brakes to be less effective. The lack of clean fluid can also start corroding parts and lead to damage. It is important to have a brake fluid flush when needed to ensure that fresh fluid is being transported through the brake system for maximum performance.

The following symptoms may indicate a problem with your vehicle’s brakes:

  • Brake light is on
  • Car pulls to one side while braking
  • Leaking fluid
  • Spongy brake pedal
  • Squealing or grinding noise while braking
  • Vibration while braking
