Brakes are pretty much the most important safety device on your car. Inspecting your brakes twice a year for wear and damage can protect you and your passengers.
Brake System Components That Can Fail
If brake fluid leaks because the master cylinder wears or brake lines will break, the fluid cannot deliver, and it will ruin the brake pads.
The brake lines connect to the master cylinder through a combination valve, which combines a metering and proportioning valve. It regulates the pressure on the front and rear wheels to make sure both sets of brakes will apply simultaneously. A malfunctioning combination valve may cause the wheels to lock up.
The brake fluid car contaminate or dirty itself as it draws rust-causing moisture and picks up other debris, or it can break down from excess heat. Clean brake fluid is either clear or slightly yellow, while dirty brake fluid may be brown or even black. Old and dirty brake fluid can damage ABS brake systems internally.
Brake pads and shoes can be made of ceramic, metal, or organic materials, while the disc rotors and drums they press against are made of metal. Because the pads and shoes create friction to stop the car, they gradually wear down over time and may wear away completely, letting the metal of the calipers and cylinders attaching to it to grind against the rotors and drums and damage them.
