When it comes to your brakes, it’s fair to say that they are one of the more important aspects of your car. However, could you tell if they were in trouble? While nobody wants to drive a car which is unsafe, often, the majority of motorists aren’t aware that the car they are driving is crying out for help. Many times literally!

How to Know If Your Car's Brakes Need Your Attention

A car’s brakes are one of the easiest problems to notice, and Huff Oil Group has a post below to help you do just that.

Are Your Wheels Trying to Win a Grammy Award?

If, when you press your foot on the brake pedal, it sounds like your wheels are doing their best to beat Mariah Carey for the highest note competition, then it’s a fair sign that your brakes could do with some attention. Inside each of your brake pads is a small metal pin or rod which, when exposed through your pads wearing down, comes into contact with your wheel, letting out an all-mighty screeching sound. If you hear this, it’s important that you act quickly, as the louder the sound gets, the more damage the pin can do to your wheel.

It Worked for Dorothy, but It Won't Work for You

Do your wheels sound like they are trying to click together three times to get you home? While it may have brought Dorothy out of a hyper color dream, if you are hearing it as you brake, it’s time to stop and give your brakes some attention. The most likely cause is that your brakes have come loose from their fitting, causing them to rock back and forth loosely as you apply pressure to the brakes. This could have happened either when they were installed or from a particularly bumpy ride. Either way, if you hear a click, it’s time to look at your brakes. Click here to buy AMSOIL DOT 3 and DOT 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid and give your brakes a high-quality fluid to help them perform their task.

Um...I Wanted to Stop Back There

If it feels like you and your car aren’t communicating well when it comes to where and when you would prefer to stop, then chances are your brakes are to blame. While it may seem obvious, motorists can overlook this sign in the absence of any other indicators, thinking that if their brakes need attention, they’ll hear about it. This is especially true if the problem has just started. If you find that you are taking longer and longer to come to a complete stop, your brakes are the first culprit to check. Just taking a couple of minutes to give your brake pads a visual inspection in the daylight will be enough to know whether they need replacing.

Where Do You Think You're Going?

Of course, in addition to stopping, it’s also a good idea for the driver to have control over which direction the car stops in. If you notice that your car pulls to one side as you brake then there is a chance that one of your brake pads has worn unevenly compared to the others, causing the pull. A potential cause is how they were installed, but again, it could have come dislodged from a bumpy ride and worn down unevenly since. The easiest way to see if this is the case is to check each brake pad individually to compare its wear. While it may seem like a bit of work, it’s the easiest way to find out.
