Brake Inspection

Brake Inspection

Avoiding costly repairs and maintaining your peace of mind begin with regular brake inspections. Jiffy Lube® performs a visual inspection of your brake system, measures the brake pads and provides service recommendations.

WHAT WE DO:

Our technicians will perform a visual inspection of your vehicle’s brake system. During that inspection, we will measure your brake pads and provide a written evaluation of any service recommendations. Any service recommendation is based on your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications and the condition of the brake components that impact system performance.

HOW IT WORKS:

When you press the brake pedal in a brake system, the hydraulic fluid, generally referred to as brake fluid, is pressurized via the master cylinder. The fluid passes along the brake lines to the cylinders positioned next to the brakes at each wheel. There are typically two types of brake systems – disc brakes or drum brakes.

Disc brakes, the most common type of brake system, consist of a disc or rotor, a caliper and a pad. When the brake pedal is depressed, the hydraulic fluid passes through the lines, causing the caliper to press the pad against the disc. The application of the pad against the disc generates friction, causing the vehicle to slow. Drum brakes use a similar, but unique, system.

Drum brakes consist of a brake drum and brake shoes. When the brake pedal is pressed, a cylinder pushes brake shoes with brake linings against the inner surface of the brake drum, generating friction, causing the vehicle to slow.

HOW OFTEN:

If you're hearing abnormal sounds or experiencing unusual stops, it’s a good idea to have your brakes inspected immediately. Otherwise, it is generally recommended that brakes be inspected with regular tire rotations – about once or twice a year - based on most manufacturer recommendations.

Jiffy Lube® recommends following manufacturer recommendations, where applicable, for maintenance schedules and service intervals.
