Thinking you need brake service? Remember, your brakes are being worn every time you drive your car! For that reason, we recommend that you should have your brakes checked every 6 months or 6,000 miles (3,600kms) or as soon as you suspect any problems at all.
A good idea is to have your brakes checked at every oil change service. That way, our ASE Certified technicians can spot small problems before they become big, costly ones!
With a simple inspection we’ll be able to tell you how much life is left in your brake pads, inspect the brake rotors for excess wear and double check that wheel cylinders aren’t leaking any brake fluid.
We also check your brake fluid levels and the condition of the fluid itself. That’s because brake fluid is very hygroscopic. That means it absorbs moisture. When that happens, the brake fluid discolors.
As a quick rule of thumb, clean brake fluid should be about the color of apple juice. When it’s darker than that – it’s contaminated.
Everyone’s driving habits vary – and that means everyone brakes will wear differently depending on the way you drive and the driving conditions. As an example, you could expect longer life from your brakes if you do a lot of highway driving.
On the other hand, stop and go city driving will mean that you will wear your brake pads and rotors quicker.

DO YOU HAVE A SCRAPING OR GRINDING NOISE COMING FROM YOUR BRAKES?
If you’re hearing squealing, grinding or scraping sounds when you apply your brakes, here’s some of the most common things you should check or watch for:
- Does your brake pedal feel soft or spongy when you apply the brakes?
- Does your vehicle pull to one side when you brake?
- Is the brake fluid level in the master cylinder low?
- Does your brake system Warning Light stay illuminated?
These are just some of the signs that you should have your brakes checked. Do that now and keep you and your family safe! Book online at Tanela Auto & Truck Repair or call 847-278-9147
YOUR CAR’S BRAKE FLUID – PART OF MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE:
Your car’s brakes rely on brake fluid. That’s hydraulic fluid that’s used every time you apply your brakes. That fluid transfers force under pressure – through hydraulic lines – to the braking mechanism near the wheels.
Because braking applications produce a lot of heat, brake fluid must be able to work under extreme conditions and have a high boiling point to remain effective. Additionally, brake fluid must never freeze.
Brake fluid is also designed to protect against corrosion of the system materials it contacts, however those corrosion inhibitors in your car’s brake fluid will deplete over time.
Excessive moisture is also an issue and may seriously affect braking efficiency and safety.
