What To Do When Your Brakes Break

Your pickup truck is heavy and hard working, whether it’s a Chevy, Ford, or Dodge. If you add towing to the mix, it’s even heavier and has to work harder. Your brakes are one of the most wear and tear prone systems on your diesel pickup, but at Overley Automotive in Louisville, KY, we can help you keep yours in good shape.

Brake components are heavily reliant on one another to work properly. Between the master cylinder, rotors, calipers, brake pads, lines, and hoses, there are a lot of opportunities for something to go wrong. The brake system is your most important line of defense to stay safe in your truck.

You may hear squealing, grinding, feel your brake pedal pulsing as you push down or they might just take too long to slow you down. You could also smell burning or feel the car bouncing as you apply your brakes. None of these are good for your car and could even be bad for your health. If you notice noises or vibrations when you’re braking, it’s definitely time to have them serviced.

Brake parts work together, so when one of them fails, the rest will be damaged as well if the issue isn’t taken care of quickly. A bad hose will cause worn pads or caliper and rotor damage, bad rotors will wear out wheel bearings, and the list goes on. Waiting until your brake system is already damaged can increase your cost into the four digit range. It makes more sense to have your brakes repaired and inspected as soon as you notice a problem.

At Overley Automotive, our professional technicians will get you taken care of. We have the equipment, knowledge, and quality parts necessary to keep your truck stopping the way it should, no matter what you’re pulling, carrying or where you’re driving. We keep your safety first.

No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best diesel service shop in Louisville, KY, call or stop by Overley Automotive today.
