Brake Service FAQ
How Do I Replace My Brake Pads?
Replacing your brake pads is a straightforward process that can be performed at home if you have the right tools. However, if you don’t want to take on that project yourself, you can always schedule service at Cadillac Pensacola.
How Do I Put Brake Fluid in My Car?
You can easily top off your car brake fluid by taking a quick peek under the hood. But first, you should check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to ensure you buy the appropriate brake fluid for your car’s brakes. After that, you can check the brake fluid level on the reservoir under the hood of your car and add more brake fluid if necessary.
Why Can’t I Press the Brake to Start My Car?
Most newer cars have brake assist, which uses a brake vacuum. Because of this, if you push the brake when the engine is off, it pressurizes your brake lines, making it very hard to press your brake pedal. You can fix this by leaving your brakes alone for several minutes and then trying to start your car again. Contact our service team today if you have any questions.
Why Does My Brake Pedal Feel Squishy?
How hard you have to press your brake pedal is directly linked to your vehicle’s brake lines and the amount of fluid in them. If your brake fluid is low or there is air in your brake lines, your brakes may have trouble engaging. This problem is serious and should be serviced immediately. Contact our team at Cadillac Pensacola for assistance.
