If you have any of the following problems please bring your car to the nearest AutoStream Car Care Center of Maryland.

Warning Signals of Brake Repair

  • High-pitched squeaking or squealing noise when you apply your brakes. A small metal wear indicator can cause this. That noise is to warn you that your brake pads need to be replaced.
  • Spongy or Soft Brakes. If you notice, that you have to push your brake pedal farther down to the floor in order to stop your vehicle. Or notice that your vehicle slows down more slowly than it used to when applying the brake. You may have a problem with your brake lines. This could mean a leak or just a simple lack of fluid.
  • Shaking or vibrating while braking. This could mean a problem with your tires or the alignment and both can affect your braking system.
  • Loud Grinding Noise! This is generally not a good sign. It can indicate metal on metal contact due to complete loss of brake pads. This can cause more damage than just a simple brake pad replacement.
  • Car drifts to the right or left when braking. This can also be a sign of tire and or alignment issues.
