Signs Your Brake Pedal Needs to be Repaired

When you press on your vehicle’s brake pedal, you want to feel some resistance that lets you know your brakes are going to do their job. If fluid is not reaching the caliper, that may cause the pedal to feel soft, or spongy.

There could be several reasons why your brakes aren’t functioning as they should. One of them is a blockage in the lines. That can occur if air gets in and blocks the fluid’s movement. It’s the brake fluid that creates the force in the lines to move the parts. Another explanation might be a leak. Since the lines are constructed of steel, they can sometimes corrode and rust. It might create a tiny hole in the line.

When you’ve noticed your brakes have stopped performing as they should, it’s time to have them inspected. We’re here at Lithia Nissan of Fresno to assist you with all of your car’s maintenance needs. Stop in and speak with one of our knowledgeable technicians.
