Pro Muffler & Brake Shop Question:
What is power brake service and why do Benton Harbor auto owners need to have it done?

Pro Muffler & Brake Shop Answer:
Imagine: you pour a tablespoon of water in your hand and throw it as hard as you can. Now, suppose you suck up a tablespoon of water into a syringe, push the plunger and squirt it out. Which would go further?

Of course it’s the water squirting out of the syringe. That’s because you pressurized the water. Your power brake system is kind of the same thing. When you step on the brake pedal, the master cylinder pressurizes brake fluid which actuates the brakes so you can stop. Benton Harbor drivers who don’t have enough pressure – can’t stop.

A leak in your brake system would impair – or even eliminate – your stopping power. Brake fluid attracts moisture which can cause dangerous leak-inducing corrosion. So a great way for Benton Harbor auto owners to keep their brake fluid free of contaminants is to change it as recommended.

Enough brake fluid is essential for the proper function of Benton Harbor car owners anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control systems. Your friendly & knowledgeable Pro Muffler & Brake Shop service professional will check your brake fluid level during a full-service oil change. If it’s low it may indicate that a thorough brake inspection is key. Low brake fluid is most usually caused by worn brake pads.

Some of the signs of a leak are reduced stopping power and spongy or hard pedal feel. If you suspect a problem, come into Pro Muffler & Brake Shop for a brake inspection right away.

Let’s step back. A car or truck rolls brand new off the showroom floor at a Southwest Michigan dealer. It has brand new brakes with brand new brake pads. The brake lines and the power assist are filled with fresh fluid and are completely clean inside. And the auto tires are brand new, with full tread. Naturally, braking power is at its peak performance. Continue reading
