Brake F.A.Q

We’re automotive repair experts with a penchant for putting a stop to faulty brakes. You have questions, and we have answers. Give us a little bit of your time now to learn about the ever important braking system in your vehicle.


What's in a brake system?


Your braking system contains the following key components:

  • Brake Pedal: You know this part well. The brake pedal begins the braking process with each step.
  • Rotors: Also known as brake discs, your rotors stop your wheels when squeezed by your brake pads.
  • Brake Pads: These squeeze your rotors.
  • Brake Pistons: Rods that use hydraulic fluid to push the brake pads against the rotors.

There’s a lot more to your braking system, including brake cylinders, drums, and shoes. Each time you hit the brake pedal, you start a process that appears to offer results immediately but involves a lot of components and processes.


How do brakes work?


It seems simple:

  • You step on your brake pedal.
  • Your car stops.

In reality, there's a lot going on in your vehicle after you put your foot down. After you step on your brake pedal, brake fluid releases to carry the force of your step to your brakes. You can’t create enough force to slow your tires alone, so your vehicle helps you by manipulating hydraulic force and using leverage. Your brakes then transmit the force to your tires with friction. Easy, right?


Why are my brakes squeaking?


Your metal rotors are vibrating. Common reasons include the weather (dust and humidity), type of material used in your brake pads (which touch the rotors), and age. It could always be a mouse with uncanny squeak timing as well. We can't rule this out until you visit us.

Keep in mind squeaking is often due to something simple. Bring your vehicle to one of our shops and our professionals will let you know so you can stop worrying. We can also make it so you stop hearing that squeak or squeal each time you press the pedal.


What causes brakes to wear out quickly?


Premature brake wear has multiple causes that often involve the rotors, including:

  • Cleanliness Level: Clean rotors and pads perform better and for longer than dirty ones. Even new rotors need to be cleaned first to remove any contaminates.
  • Proper Break-in: Rotors and pads need to be broken in properly for you to get the most out of them. This is especially important today since more light weight materials are being used in the two parts.
  • Correct Thickness: Over time, rotors lose thickness. Driving with a skinny rotor can cause braking problems.

Fortunately, our team knows how to install brake components right and can easily pinpoint any of these problems if they are currently plaguing your vehicle. With proper installation of rotors, pads, calipers, and other parts, your brakes won’t wear quickly.

Remember, being able to stop your vehicle is just as important as making it go. All American Automotive is proud to have two professional brake repair shops available for customers. Get in contact with us today, and break away from your brake problems.
