Possible Causes of Poor Braking

When you press down on the brake pedal, it should feel firm as opposed to spongy. A spongy brake pedal could indicate that there is a problem with the brake line. It is possible that there is air getting into the brake line or that it is rusted out.

Rust could also wreak havoc with disc brake calipers. If the calipers are rusted, brake fluid can leak, which can result in the brakes not working as they should. Finally, a worn master cylinder can cause issues when pressing on the brake pedal. This is a serious issue that should be fixed by a mechanic as soon as possible.

If you notice that your brakes aren't working as they should, come to i.g. Burton & Co. Inc. today. A technician can diagnose the problem and fix it in a timely manner, which allows you to drive safely at all times.
