How Do Brakes Work?
The brake system applies pressure to a disk or drum behind the wheels, creating friction to stop your car. Most brake systems use hydraulics to apply a great deal of pressure with minimal effort making it easier for you to control the rate at which the vehicle slows down. All brake systems will require brake fluid to lubricate the system and transfer brake pressure form the brake pedal to the wheels.
Brake pads make contact with the brake rotors or brake drums and these components get worn down with time. Paying close attention to the feel and sound of the brakes as well as any warning lights can help you determine when your brake pads need to be replaced. A shudder-like feeling through the pedal, high pitch or grinding sound can mean that your brake pads or brake rotors/drums have worn down or become warped and require service.
What Are Anti-lock Brakes?
Most new cars now come with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) as a standard safety feature. When you make a sudden stop, the ABS prevents the wheels from locking-up which gives you control over your car to avoid skidding. The system is comprised of wheel-speed sensors that monitor wheel rotation, computer-controlled hydraulics that pulse the brakes on and off rapidly, and an on-board computer called the Electronic Brake Control Module.
