AFS Knows Your Braking System

The braking system in your vehicle has evolved over the last 100 years by technological innovation. The system has transformed crude stopping mechanisms into dependable and efficient pieces of a power stopping system. Brake systems vary by vehicle make and model, the basic system consists of disc brakes in the front, and either disk or drum brakes in the rear.

AFS Car Care Center technicians know how to diagnose and repair any aspect of your braking system. No matter what make or model of vehicle you drive, you can count on AFS to keep your brakes in tip-top condition.

Master Cylinder Problem? See AFS Car Care Center

Your master cylinder is a sort of “pressure converter”. When you push down on the brake pedal the master cylinder converts this pressure to hydraulic pressure. This hydraulic pressure sends brake fluid into the wheel brakes.

If any part of your braking system is not working properly, including the master cylinder, you are at risk for injury. Keep your cargo safe – don’t ignore the warning signs of bad brakes – squealing, squeaking, or a squishy or spongy brake pedal. Call AFS in Tempe, AZ. right away for professional, affordable brake service.

Brake pad Brakes

Brake Lines, Clamps and Hoses.

The steel braided brake lines and high pressure, shock, and road resistant brake hoses are the channels that deliver the pressurized brake fluid into the braking unit(s) at each wheel.

Lines and hoses can wear or even break. The loss of these important pieces of your braking system can be devastating. It is a very disconcerting feeling to step on your brake pedal and have your vehicle just keep on going! Give us a call at AFS and we’ll make sure all the parts and pieces of your braking system are in good condition and working properly.

Keeping Wheel Cylinders and Calipers in good shape

Wheel cylinders consist of cylinders surrounded by two rubber-sealed pistons that connect the piston with the brake shoe. When brake pressure is applied, pistons are forced out, pushing the shoes into the drum. Calipers squeeze brake pads onto the rotor to stop your car. Let AFS brake experts inspect your braking system to make sure everything is in perfect working order.

Brake pad Brakes

Disc Brake Pads and Drum Brake Shoes in Tempe, AZ.

A disc brake uses fluid (released by the master cylinder) to force pressure into a caliper, where it presses against a piston. The piston then squeezes two brake pads against the rotor, forcing it to stop. Brake shoes consist of a steel shoe with friction material bonded to it.

It is very common for these parts to wear – sometimes unevenly. When this happens you may experience unequal braking pressure. It is important that these particular parts of your braking system are maintained for efficient braking power. Our expert ASE Certified Technicians at AFS Car Care Center will check over your entire braking system to keep you safely driving down the road.

The Braking System All Comes Together – Thanks to AFS!

When you step on the brake pedal, you trigger the release of brake fluid into a system of tubes and hoses, where the fluid travels to the braking unit located at each wheel. You are actually pushing against a plunger, of sorts, in the master cylinder, which causes the fluid to be released.

The bottom line is, when you step on your brake pedal, you want your vehicle to stop! If any part of your braking system is not working properly, your vehicle is not safe. Make sure you protect you and your cargo by calling AFS Car Care Center today and schedule a complete brake inspection. We know brakes!
