What Your Brake Pedal Can Tell You About Your Brake System

Have you noticed that your brake pedal feels soft or spongy? This is a sign that part of your brake system isn’t working properly. Having a working brake system is crucial for getting to your destination safely.

Normally, the brake line is filled with brake fluid that causes the brakes to squeeze when you press the pedal. A soft brake pedal is caused by reduced pressure in the brake line. If there is air in the brake line, the brake fluid doesn’t move effectively through the line. If there is a brake line leak, the pressure loss can also make the brake feel soft. Corroded calipers or cylinders can also cause fluid leaks.

If you notice that your brake pedal isn’t as firm as it used to be, it’s crucial that you schedule an appointment at Gilberts of Sand Creek in Sand Creek, WI today to have your brake line inspected.
