Generally, you will find most front disc brake pads last about 25,000-30,000 miles if they are serviced right. However there are many factors that can add or subtract from this. The factors include weight of vehicle, city or highwaty driving, driving habits, if rear brakes are kept in adjustment, If the brakes were installed correctly. I have seen some go 70,000 miles and some go 10,000 miles. On the rear if you have disc brakes it really varies due to the many different styles. Rear drum brakes however typically go about 70,000 miles but again vary with factors. Keep in mind brakes are a system and there is more to them than just the linings. Also don't go to a chain brake shop, as an independent repair shop will do a much better job. Most chains need to do a volume of business to keep corporate happy, not to mention most techs of the chains are paid on commission. Whose wallet do you think they want to keep full?
Yes, but the entire braking system would need changed. It would be easier and cheaper to buy a car with ABS.
You should bring your car in to a shop or a place like auto zone etc. They will inform you on the condition of your brakes and when they need to be changed out.
yes, i need new brakes
Brakes are expensive if you need all new brakes. Expect to pay in the hundreds. Depending on your car and how many brakes need servicing.
If you want to stop you do.
Often the first sign that the brakes need to be checked is when the check brakes light comes on. Another indication is the car taking too long to slow down. Brake failure is often accompanied by a high-pitched squeal, as well.
It could be your brakes. Your brake pads need to be changed out every couple of years or so.
brakes need replaced
If you are a good auto repair mechanic, then you can change the brakes on your car. I wouldn't recommend changing brakes on a vehicle because they can be very complicated and if they are not changed properly you can cause a serious accident.
if you need to ask, then get a garage to do it.
kinda need to know if your needing the back or fronts changed, but in any case take them in to qualified techs if your not to sure about your brakes and how to work on them! their your brakes you wanna know that your car is gonna stop when you need it too!!!!
Rear brakes do not have to be replaced too often. It's really hard to tell without looking at it. What you can do is to replace front brakes and test drive it, if you feel that your car brakes works just fine you do not need to replace rear brake shoes.
Typically, a knocking noise when to use your brakes in the car is caused by your brakes wearing down. This means you need to get them checked out and repaired.
your brakes are sticking need servicing asap
You do not need to wait to lt the brakes cool down from city driving, if you are in a race on the other hand everything changes. If your brakes are bright orange when you get out of you car then you should check the oil coolant system.
a belt needs changed. go to see a mechanic
Pump the brakes when the car is off.
The brakes are not releasing and need to be brought back to whoever put them on.
No you dont have to. All I did was was pump the brakes with the car running
The way that brakes stop the car is by pressing on the pedal. This is something that you do everyday while in traffic. This is something you need to know in order to operate a vehicle.
Sounds like you need to replace your brakes very soon. You may need to replace hubs as well.
There are front brakes and rear brakes. There are a total of four brakes on a car. Every wheel on the car has its own brake and every car has the same number of brakes.
Yes, you need to seriously change your brakes. You do not have any brake fluid in your car because your need brakes badly. If you don't take the car in and the back brakes are bad, it's going to cost a lot of money to repair them.
