Why Are My Brakes Giving Out?

Understanding how brakes work is the first step in maintaining and repairing them. Commercial and heavy-duty diesel trucks typically use a drum system for their air brakes, which offers more durability and stability than your car’s disk brakes. However, if you own a fleet of light-duty diesel trucks, they may have hydraulic brakes that provide better performance for lighter vehicles.

Over time, your brake system may experience problems such as unbalanced or cracked shoes, improper loading, excessive brake fade, brake locking, damaged airlines, air contamination, or leaking fluid. If you experience reduced braking power, vibrations, or pulsations when applying the brakes, noise while braking, or a spongy or soft brake pedal, it’s time to have your brakes checked by a qualified technician.

Brake Pads Service Interval

As you rack up miles on your truck, wear and tear on the brake pads is inevitable. The lifespan of your brake pads can vary depending on multiple factors, such as the make and model of your truck and your driving habits. On average, brake pads can last up to 60,000 miles. However, if you frequently transport heavy loads or come to sudden stops, the life expectancy of your brake pads may be reduced to approximately 35,000 miles.

It is vital to regularly check the thickness of your brake pads and replace them promptly when they start to wear down. Neglecting to replace worn-out brake pads can compromise your truck's braking performance, posing a safety risk to you and other drivers on the road.

Great shop and people! I was very glad to find this shop cause they were able to fix the mechanical issue of my box truck (truck didnt start due to bad injector seal) that other shops around were not able to. I definitely recommend this shop to any truckers in the area. Dustin is a great  person to deal with. His knowledge and experience is incredible and will help to keep your fleet running! Thank you, Elite Truck & Bus Center!

Dustin knew I was having issues with my AC on my Supra and was able to squeeze me in around my schedule. Once I got there, Luis went through a thorough diagnostic of my AC unit and saw there was a leak somewhere in the system. He recharged my AC and had me on my way! Elite was definitely a huge help. Thank you so much again!
