Don’t Ignore Issues with Your Brakes!

While delivering your payload is certainly your rig’s primary purpose, being able to stop is arguably its most important function. When you notice the performance of your brakes has changed, it’s important to seek out experienced brake technicians to diagnose and fix the problem before disaster strikes. Big rigs usually have air brakes instead of hydraulic systems, so it requires specialized expertise to understand how to address certain problems. Contact the experts at Pros Diesel if you’re experiencing any of the following issues.

Pedals Feel Squishy to the Touch

If depressing your brake pedal yields anything less than firm resistance, you’ll need to take your rig in for an inspection. The most common cause of squishy brakes is a damaged brake line, which may become compromised by corrosion or impact. As pressure in the line lessens, so too does your stopping power. A worn-out master cylinder or damaged calipers are also likely culprits. Rely on Pros Diesel to make that determination and undertake the necessary repairs.

Brakes Are Squeaking Loudly

Your brake pads are designed to emit a high-pitched squeal as they become worn, indicating to you quite clearly that they need to be replaced. However, there are other causes for the noise, ranging from pads that have been glazed by heat, rust from the brake rotors, or long-life pads that are simply a bit harder than normal. In any case, our semi-truck/diesel truck brake services are at your disposal to solve this annoying problem.

You Have a Longer Stopping Distance

While some brake lag is normal for air-braking systems commonly found in American semi-trucks, an excessive stopping distance is cause for concern. This is especially true as weather conditions change, as you may find you don’t have enough time to make a full stop and avoid a collision. This problem can be caused by a number of factors, and it’s crucial that you let the experts at Pros Diesel make a full inspection.

You Have to Press Harder to Stop

Even for a well-trained truck driver, overly hard brakes can cause serious issues on the road. If your brake pedal is too stiff, there are a number of issues that could be to blame, including a busted air governor. Pros Diesel has the experience and equipment necessary to perform full diagnostics and repair the problem so you can get back on the road fast.

Fluids Are Pooling under the Brake Line

A leaking brake line can spell disaster if left unattended. Don’t leave it to chance; call Pros Diesel as soon as you detect this problem.

You Hear a Grinding or Grating Sound

This is another serious issue that should be seen to immediately. It is usually a symptom of one of two problems: your brake pad has worn down so much that the caliper is making contact with your rotor disc, or a foreign object has become lodged in the caliper. Both issues will lead to a dramatic decrease in braking power and pose an unacceptable risk to your safety and those around you.

Braking properly shouldn't be something you have to worry about when driving. Call us at (801) 989-5587 to make an appointment or for a free evaluation in Brigham City, Utah.
