When it comes to braking, most WORCESTER drivers know it means to slow down or stop a vehicle. The mechanical aspects of the brakes themselves is just one part. There's also the power brake system and brake fluid. But there are the tires as well, which are very important to the effectiveness of the brakes.
For instance, you see a pristine car or truck coming off the showroom floor at a local WORCESTER dealer. Of course, it has brand new brakes with brand new brake pads. The brake lines and the power assist are filled with fresh fluid and are entirely clean inside. The vehicle tires came new with full tread too. Naturally, at this stage braking power is at its highest performance.
Meanwhile, when driving from WORCESTER to Auburn and back, the miles/kilometers begin to pile up. Most WORCESTER car owners seem to always put their attention toward the brake pads. WORCESTER automotive service community, the pads and shoes on drum brakes are known as the friction material. This is because they provide the necessary friction to stop the car. The pads are intended to be compelling throughout their useful life. It's not until they are worn so thin as to be out of spec that they lose stopping adequacy.
The mechanical parts of the brakes have pistons and springs that work hard while stopping the vehicle. Do to how many miles/kilometers you are driving, these parts wear and get gummed up. In effect, these parts start to lose effectiveness gradually and could even fail. That's why a regular brake inspection is important. At AutoPro Import Repair, we can test the operation of the brakes and see if any parts need cleaning or replacing.
Which brings us to brake fluid service at AutoPro Import Repair. A portion of the vital additives in the liquid that lubricate and clean the vehicle fluid system weaken and drain over time. That and dampness developing in the system break down the performance of the brake fluid. Brake fluid replacement at AutoPro Import Repair incorporates flushing the brake system to get out deposits, water and dirt. At that point the system is topped off with new fluid.
The tires are what connect the vehicle to the road. The stopping force is ultimately dependent on the traction provided by the tires. The better they grip the road, the quicker you'll stop as you drive around WORCESTER.
