Often it’s harmless, but continuous squeals or grinding sounds should be taken very seriously. Worn brakes can mean longer stopping distances and difficulty stopping in emergency situations, with rotors and drums that wear too thin can even become over stressed to the point of cracking or breaking, causing major damage to your car.
Often this is because the disc rotors on your vehicle are no longer running true or have become warped. To fix this issue, the disc rotors must be machined until flat. If the rotors have been machined before and are under size, they must be replaced with a set of new disc rotors. An inspection can determine the best option.
If your auto brakes are not as responsive as they should be or if the pedal “sinks” toward the floor, this could be an indication of a leak in the braking system. It could be an air leak or a brake fluid leak. One sign of a brake fluid leak is the presence of a small puddle of fluid when the car is parked, with the fluid looking similar to fresh motor oil.
