Be able to stop your vehicle at the drop of a dime. Learn why brake-like fluid is important and why a brake line leak could be fatal today!
You probably don’t give it much thought about your brakes, but when your foot travels to the floor and you’re not stopping, well, that’s scary and can be a hairy situation.
What a sinking feeling of not be able to stop and panic starts to set in and not many options you have.
The number of horrific scenarios.
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center.
Before I talk about the why and how of having no brakes, like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram and check out our YouTube channel.
Your brake lines carry the brake fluid needed to stop. Brake fluid travels from the master cylinder to the brake calipers causing the force to clamp down on the brake rotors, allowing you to stop.
Brake lines and/or connections between the brake lines can deteriorate over time. Especially from brine used on the road during the winter months.
Without warning, you can develop a brake fluid leak at the brake lined and/or connections.
Hence no brakes.
Three warning signs for this are:
- A difference in your brake pedal traveling more to the floor when applying the brake.
- Brake fluid on the ground under your vehicle.
- Brake light illuminated because you’re low in brake fluid.
How your technician assesses the situation, determines your brake repair.
Vehicles are designed with numerous brake lines that go from the wheels to the master cylinder.
Steel brake lines are mostly used in the manufacturing of the vehicle because they are durable and over time, though, they can deteriorate.
We here at Kneble’s Auto use poly-coated brake lines that have a plastic-coated bake and cured during the process of manufacturing.
This allows for a more durable long-lasting product against corrosion.
