Signs of Common Brake Problems

Recognizing the signs of brake problems can help prevent accidents, as well as potentially catch a small problem before it becomes a larger, more expensive one. Some of the symptoms of brake problems to look out for are:

  • Squealing or grinding noises: This is probably the most common symptom heard when applying the breaks. It usually means the brake pad needs replacing; ignoring it can damage the rotor.
  • Vibrating or pulsing: If you feel vibrations or pulsing on the brake pedal or the steering wheel when you’re braking, it can indicate a number of issues that you need to have checked out.
  • Soft or spongy brake pedal: You know what your brake pedal usually feels like when you press it. If it suddenly becomes much easier to press or goes all the way to the floor, that can mean a loss of pressure, which can be very dangerous.
  • Pulling to one side: Does your vehicle drift to one side when braking? This can be caused by uneven brake pad wear, a stuck brake caliper, or leaking brake fluid.
  • Brake fluid leaks: See brake fluid under your car? That’s a bad sign, always. The brake system is a closed hydraulic system, so the fluid should never find its way out.
  • Dashboard warning light: Most modern vehicles have a warning light on the dashboard when the car detects an issue with the braking system. If that warning light comes on, getting your car to a mechanic as soon as possible is important.
