Chevy Brake Fluid

Where does brake fluid come into the equation? The brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is responsible for moving the parts of your Chevy brake system. Fresh brake fluid is something few people think about, even though it can seriously affect braking performance. Brake fluid should be changed frequently. Confer your Chevy maintenance manual for advice on exact mileage intervals.You can even schedule your appointment online. For any brake related questions or concerns, reach out to our Chevy experts at Coggin Automotive Group.

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Chevy brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Brake pads or shoes are the parts that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's remarkably vital to keep Chevy brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Chevy maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to initiate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to initiate the parking brake of your Chevy.
  • Rotors likewise called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are several types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Coggin Auto find the best type of brake rotors for your Chevy
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby continuing the life of your brake system.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Chevy rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your Chevy brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined repeatedly for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your Chevy maintenance schedule for more advice on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road continuously.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Chevy braking system together so it can function properly.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Chevy brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which again acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can again cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate again protects the brake caliper from disproportionate heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Mainly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Chevy Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake components typically wear out well after the front brakes due to the level of stress necessary to slow a car. Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should ask your Chevy service manual for suggested maintenance intervals for all parts. Keep in mind you should consistently have your service department perform a multipoint examination which includes inspecting your brake system.

How much do new brake pads cost?

Chevy brake pads can cost somewhere between $150 per axle and $450 per axle depending on the type of brake pad needed. In some rare cases, they can be even more if the manufacturer requires a specific type of brake pad to be ordered for your Chevy. Contact Coggin Automotive Group today at 9042041611 or schedule your brake service online.

How long do Chevy brake rotors last?

This depends massively on the type of rotors, your driving style, and the type of vehicle you're driving. Chevy rotors need to be replaced every 30,000 - 80,000 miles depending on the factors above. Confer with your Chevy maintenance manual for more facts. Remember, it's constantly a good idea to have your complete brake system examined by a franchise dealer with the proper training to spot potential issues before they cause damage to other parts of your Chevy brake system. Coggin Automotive Group offers an assortment of brake specials including free diagnostics. Call us at 9042041611 or schedule an appointment online today!
