Your automobile’s brakes are one of the most important parts of your car. They keep you safe, prevent accidents before they happen, and allow you to retain a high level of control when they are repaired. The problem with brake systems is that they contain numerous components that undergo wear and tear. Brake pads can fail, brake lines can leak, low brake fluid levels can lead to inefficient braking, and a plethora of other nasty things can go wrong. That’s where our local brake technicians enter the picture. At Creech Import Repair, we can diagnose and repair any issues with your brakes to ensure that you and any passengers in your vehicle are safe. Let’s examine some more information about brakes to better understand why brake repair is so important.

How Do Your Brakes Work?
Car Suspension and Brakes Maintenance in Auto Service. There are two main types of brake systems: disk brakes, which apply friction to both the front and rear axles; and drum brakes, which have a series of tubes and hoses connected to a drum that resides on the rear axle. Other braking systems include parking brakes, power brake boosters, and anti-lock brakes. The purpose of each brake is clear: to stop your car. When you press down on the brake pedal, you’re applying pressure to a plunger that pushes brake fluid into the hydraulics of your brake system. Disk brakes have an extra step. The fluid is forced into a caliper, where it then applies pressure a piston that squeezes the rotors down upon the axle. This causes your wheels to decelerate, which in turn causes your car to slow down.
Fixing Common and Uncommon Brake Issues
At Creech Import Repair, we have seen countless brakes and braking systems. We’ve encountered everything from the commonly worn rotors to warped rotors that fail to apply brakes evenly. The most common reason we need replacement is due to excessive use or accumulated heat. These brakes become less able to work due to the decreased friction in the system, that means more pressure must be applied which results in more heat. Rotors are another common car part the needs to be repaired. Drivers wait too long to replace their brakes, which in turn causes the rotors to become warped or bent due to higher levels of heat or pressure. (See video: Why are my brakes squealing, squeaking, and grinding) We repair rotors by utilizing a “Pro-Cut machine”. While this equipment isn’t cheap, it does provide for the best overall results by machining the rotors while they are on the car. Our machine eliminates vibration, which in turn maximizes braking power and performance while forcing your new brakes to experience significantly less wear.
