How can I tell if my brakes need servicing?

Our Jacksonville, IL Ford service center serves drivers from Beardstown, Pittsfield, IL, and Mount Sterling, IL when they require brake repairs. Some telltale signs of brake failure include:

  • Time & Distance to Stop Increases: The longer and farther it takes your Ford to stop in Jacksonville, IL, the more worried you should be. Increases in stopping distance and time mean it's time to service your brakes in Jacksonville, IL.
  • Applying Greater Braking Force: A soft or spongey brake pedal will require harder braking force. We'll check for air in the brake lines.
  • Brakes That Squeal or Screech: As Pittsfield, IL drivers come to a halt, they may hear their Ford squealing, screeching, and making funny sounds.
  • Visual Cues: If your Ford pulls from side to side trying to stop on streets in Jacksonville, IL, the brakes are going bad. Leaking break fluid is another sign for Mount Sterling, IL Ford owners to watch for. They may also see an illuminated brake light on their Ford's dashboard.

How Often Should I Have My Ford's Brakes Serviced?

The braking habits of Beardstown Ford owners impact brake service intervals. Stopping frequency also alters the timing of brake replacements. Each brake component - including pads, rotors, calipers, bushings, and lines - suffers wear and tear on different timetables.

That makes routine brake inspections at our Ford service center in Jacksonville, IL even more important. We recommend that Mount Sterling, IL drivers have their vehicle's brakes checked twice a year. Annual brake service roughly every 12,000 miles is often needed, but a full brake replacement may not be needed for 40,000 miles.
