The instant you start to hear a strange sound, or feel that your vehicle is driving differently, it is important to bring it into a trusted mechanic and get it checked out. Vehicles have so many moving parts, the cause of that change can be any number of things, some more urgent than others.
A customer brought his vehicle in thinking that there was an issue with the brake line. After the guys at RAD Auto Repair took a look, it became apparent the issue was much bigger.
The brake pad had worn all the way down allowing it to move out of place. This caused the caliper to extend the pistons all the way out causing a leak, which then caused the master cylinder to go bad.
It’s important to be in tune with your vehicle so you can identify issues quickly before additional, more expensive, damage is done.
