Brake Pulsation Problems & Solutions

What Causes Brake Pulsation?

In general, feeling a pulsation or vibrating sensation when you hit the brakes isn’t a good thing. When your brakes are working as they should, you should be able to slow down and stop smoothly whenever you apply pressure to the brakes. If instead, you feel a pulsing or vibrating sensation when you tap on the brakes, it’s time to bring it in for an inspection.

What Causes Your Brakes to Squeak?

Everything You Need To Know About Brake Calipers

What is a Caliper and What Does it Do?

You know what a brake pad is and what brake rotors do, but what exactly is a brake caliper? It’s one of the lesser understood parts of a brake system, but it’s still important, at least, if you want your car to stop moving when you hit the brakes (which we assume you do). Here’s everything you need to know about brake calipers to keep you safe no matter what type of vehicle you’re driving.

Brake Rotor Material Differences

Different Types of Brake Rotors

Brake rotors (aka brake discs) are an essential part of your vehicle’s brake system and are the friction surface that the brake pads squeeze to slow down the wheel’s rotation. Compared to a bicycle; a bicycle rim serves the same function as a brake rotor/disc. When the bicycle brake pads squeeze the rim, it slows you down. Similarly, on a vehicle the brake pads clamp onto on the rotor/disc when you hit the brake, and they need to be working properly if you want your vehicle to stop.
