Common Signs of Brake Problems In Ford Mustangs
When an issue arises with your brakes, it can be pretty hard to miss, however there are a wide range of problems that can occur due to brake failure, so it’s good to stay diligent. Here are some of the common signs you’ll find when different parts of your braking system start to fail.
- Squeals While Braking
This is an easily noticed problem, and is a classic indication of failing brakes. Your brake pads could be worn out, or they could have become glazed or contaminated.
- Spongy Feeling To Pedals
If you press on your brake pedal, and there is a sponginess to it, this can be an indication of a variety of problems with your braking system. For instance, this could be due to air in your break system, or faults in your master cylinder, or it could be as simple as the wrong size of brake pads.
- Vehicle Pulling To One Side When Braking
If your vehicle pulls to one side while braking, this is often an indicator of a single brake pad having an issue, due to a manufacturing defect, a damaged pad, or contamination on the pad itself.
- No Resistance On The Brake Pedal
Another indication of problems with your master cylinder or brake lines is when there is little to no resistance when pressing the brake pedal. Typically this occurs when your master cylinder is low on fluid due to a leakage or if your brake lines become loose and/or damaged.
- Too Much Effort Required To Stop Your Car
If it seems like your car requires a lot of work just to stop, then this might be a sign of your power brake booster malfunctioning, or that your brake pads are simply worn or contaminated.
As you can see, there are no shortage of parts in your braking system that can fail, and there is a large range of symptoms that can occur as a result. Luckily, we at Fremont Foreign Auto Repair are masters at fixing brakes.
