Brake Repair and Service Essential Terms

The brakes are perhaps the most essential part of a car, truck, or any vehicle. Checked and serviced regularly, brake systems will hopefully not need too much repair. However, there is more to it than just the pads. Here are a few important terms to know about your system.

  • Fluid - Brake systems work on a hydraulic system, meaning they use a fluid to apply pressure. Regular checking of the levels in your automobile will keep your vehicle on the road.
  • Transmission - The transmission takes the power of the engine and converts it to gear power, which is then used to rotate the wheels. A brake system should not fight the transmission.
  • Caliper - This part is essentially a clamp that squeezes the pads against the rotor to slow or stop your car. These should be inspected by a mechanic on a regular basis.
  • Disc/Rotor - The spinning metal disc that the wheel sits on.
  • Brake Pad - The part of the system that physically slows down the vehicle. Pads must be replaced often as they wear down due to friction. Not having them changed soon enough can lead to accidents, as the system cannot get enough grip on a rotor when pads have not been replaced frequently enough.
  • Brake Light - A light on the dashboard that indicates the system needs repair. Fluid hoses or brake pads may need to be replaced. Sometimes a caliper will need to be changed, as well.
  • Anti-lock - A brake system that allows a car to stop more easily on slick roads by pulsing power to the brakes. This prevents skidding. Most new automobiles are fitted with this type of system.

    Brake service may take the form of simple repairs, or more replacements for these vital components. Regardless of whether automobile owners need to buy new replacements, or simply to perform maintenance and upkeep activities, these tasks play an essential part in ensuring safe and successful vehicle operation. In order to more successfully receive brake service and repair functions, car owners may want to educate themselves about the basic mechanical and design principles at play. These car parts typically take the particular form of pad brakes. These devices use friction to slow or stop vehicles, keeping this form of energy in a section of the automobile known as the disc brake. The various components put to use while driving are contained in a section known as a caliper. As any driver should know, they can change or end the force placed on pad brakes by pressing down on the relevant pedal. The performance demands expected of a car's tires, transmission and engine can determine the quality of the components selected. The more concerted choice of disc brakes might be eschewed, for instance, in favor of the drum variety. This determination is most relevant to lighter-weight cars, without the increased demands placed upon trucks. Similarly, when people are shopping for components to change out their existing brakes, they should only select used parts when these appear unlikely to cause an accident. Drivers could also opt for front-locking brakes, independent of the rear components. One basic task for car service to undertake consists of checking transmission. Inspection should also make sure that radiators are functioning successfully and brake fluid present sufficiently. Such procedures, and any resultant upkeep, can avoid the need for more financially demanding repairs or replacements.
