The Importance of Brake System Maintenance

Regular maintenance of the brake system is crucial for the safety of the driver, your truck’s load, passengers (if applicable), and other road users. The brake system is responsible for stopping the vehicle and avoiding accidents, and neglecting its maintenance can lead to brake failure. A poorly maintained brake system can also lead to uneven wear and tear of the brake pads and rotors, resulting in costly repairs.

Signs of Brake System Problems

It is important to keep an eye out for signs of brake system problems to avoid further damage and costly repairs. Here are some common signs of brake system problems:

  • Squeaking or Grinding Noise: A squeaking or grinding noise when applying the brakes indicates worn-out brake pads or rotors. The noises are caused by the metal-on-metal contact between the rotors and the wheel.
  • Vibration or Pulsation: A vibration or pulsation felt in the brake pedal or steering wheel when applying the brakes can indicate warped rotors.
  • Soft or Spongy Brake Pedal: A soft or spongy brake pedal can indicate worn brake pads (the more worn they are, the farther you have to press on the pedal for things to connect), a problem with the compressed air system (whether it’s a leak or an issue retaining air), or a problem with the brake master cylinder.
  • Warning Light: One of the first and most visible signs of trouble, a warning light on the dashboard can indicate a problem with the brake system.

If any of these signs are present, it is important to have the brake system of your diesel truck or fleet vehicle inspected by a qualified repair shop like Redmond Fleet.

I had my F350 6.4 diesel repaired here for blown head gaskets and I am completely satisfied! Matt is an honest and professional business man and is extremely knowledgeable about diesel engines! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Redmond Fleet to anyone looking to have work performed on any vehicle! The work was done in a timely manner and he even updated me as the work progressed. I am very glad to finally find a diesel mechanic that I can trust to do the work on my truck. Thanks Matt for the exceptional service!

Matthew Moreau

Redmond Fleet did an absolutely amazing  job on my truck! I went to them with a pretty large task- an entire frame swap on a truck. They were ready to take it on without any hesitation, and delivered nothing short of excellence! Matt and his crew were thorough about the entire job, making sure that any other problems / issues found along the way (warn out parts, etc.) were addressed and properly corrected. Matt was also good about keeping me up to date on what was going on throughout the job. Overall very satisfied with the end result! These guys know their stuff and aren’t afraid of a challenge. Highly recommend the great crew at Redmond Fleet!! 12/10
