Automotive brake system is vital to your safety. Here are some of the signs that indicate possible brake problems – if you notice any of these symptoms, take your vehicle to a trusted local mechanic for a brake inspection:

  • Brake dashboard light is on
  • ABS light on the dashboard is illuminated – intermittently or constantly – this indicates anti-lock brake system (ABS) problem
  • Squealing or grinding sounds during braking
  • Vehicle pulls to the right or left when stopping
  • Brake pedal pulsates, and it’s accompanied by thumping sound
  • Brake pedal is slow to respond or feels “spongy”
  • Emergency brake (aka handbrake) does not hold on a hill
  • Steering wheel or brake pedal vibrations when stopping

When you bring your vehicle to our San Leandro auto repair facility, our nationally ASE certified technicians will remove all wheels and check wear pattern and brake pad thickness. We inspect rotors (both front and rear) for rust, hots spots, grooves, and other wear indicators, and check brake calipers. We also check brake hoses for cracks, leaks, or bubbles. Hand brake (aka emergency brake) operation is tested. If your vehicle has drum brakes, we check them for hots spots and grooves as well. We test the brake fluid for water content, since brake fluid attracts moisture from the environment.  

We can also diagnose anti-lock braking system problems. Naturally we can also repair any problems with the anti-lock braking system, including control unit issues and sensor problems.
