As preventative maintenance, you should have your brakes inspected every five months or 5,000 miles. The life of your brakes will vary with how you use them.
Why does my brake pedal drop to the floor?
There may be air in the hydraulic system; fluid leak in master cylinder (past primary cup); hose or line leak in system; or the brakes misadjusted.
I was told that I had to buy new rotors or drums because they couldn’t be turned again. What does this mean?
We turn (resurface) rotors and drums to create smoother braking. This can be done until they have been worn to the manufacturer’s minimum specifications. If they are worn beyond this point, there won’t be sufficient metal to absorb the heat generated by the friction of pads or shoes.
What is “bleeding” or “flushing” of the brake system and when should this be done?
Bleeding forces air out of the brake system. Flushing of the entire hydraulic system is recommended every 2 years or 24,000 miles. This procedure removes water or moisture, sludge, or other contaminants from your system and helps prolong the life of your brake components.
