NEW JERSEY MOBILE BRAKE REPLACEMENT BLOG

We’re always looking for ways to increase our brakes’ life. Eventually, they will wear down or falter and it is not something we like to think about until it is almost too late. But there are ways to extend your brake life that could end up saving you some much needed time in the long run.

Safe Driving Saves Brakes. The most common way to save your brake pads might also be the most obvious. Maintain safe driving practices and you’ll maintain healthy brakes for longer. Use practices like keeping a safe driving distance, three seconds behind any object in front of you, in order to maintain healthy braking habits. Quick stops and jarring brake habits can absolutely destroy your brake pads. But by keeping safe driving habits in mind and adhering to a more cautious driving style, you can save your brakesfrom an early replacement.

Use Correct Braking Practices In Steep Areas. If you live in or are visiting an area with steep roads, such as the mountains, here are two specific tips you should know. If you are driving downhill on dry roads, drive in a lower gear. Then apply your brakes with light pressure as your car begins to speed up, maintaining a constant speed. By doing this, you are balancing engine braking and pumping your brakes. This allows your brakes to cool down. Riding your brakes straight down a steep hill generates friction. This practice cuts down on that friction and wear slightly. But there are certain conditions where you would not want to use this method. If you are driving down an icy or slick road, use light, consistent pressure on your brakes and keep double the distance between yourself and the car in front of you. This allows your antilock brakes to kick in if you lose traction and gives you enough room to be safely away from bumping into vehicles in front of you.

Plan Accordingly. Similar to the first tip, slowing down and building up habits of not slamming on the brakes at sharp corners, stop signs, and turns allows the engine to do the heavy lifting and keeps strain off your brakes. This allows for a longer, healthier lifespan for your brake pads.

There are quite a few signs out there that can let you know that there are problems with your brakes. It also helps to know these signs because they can clue you in to just how serious those problems might be. Here are a few helpful signs to take notice of the next time they happen to your vehicle.

Foul Odor. If you smell a pungent, burning odor in your car, it could be excess oil burning after an oil change or you might even be driving with your parking brake engaged. But if that smell is coming from your wheels, it’s more than likely that your brakes are overheating or failing fast. If you smell burning or see smoke coming from the front of your car, pull over and shut it off completely; then call for help.

Vibration & Pulling. We all know that an unbalanced tire can cause vibration in the steering wheel. But if that vibration is in the brake pedal, it might be caused by unresurfaced rotors or even worn out suspension parts. You also want to take notice if your steering wheel is pulling or tugging to one side when you brake. This is a clear sign of either a bad brake hose, stuck caliper, loose suspension parts, or worn brake pads.

Odd Noises. If you start hearing odd noises such as grinding, squeaking, or screeching coming from your car, this could be an indication of one of several different things. It could just mean that a rock has gotten caught between the brake pad and the disc, though I would not rest on assuming this is the case. On the other end of the spectrum, it could be that you are hearing a failing alternator, bearings, worn shocks, or even worn down brake pads. When your brake pads get worn down, you will hear a metal tab that contacts the rotor surface start to screech. This is the brake pad indicator and hearing it is a sign that you should get your brake pads checked out and replaced immediately.
