Have a Spongy Brake Pedal? See Gregoris Nissan Today


If you have ever driven a car, or been a passenger in a car, you know the importance of a working brake system. One part that is often overlooked when doing brake maintenance is the brake pedal. The brake pedal is the first step in the braking processes and when you press the brake pedal it forces fluid to travel to the brake cylinders causing them to squeeze the brake pads causing the wheel to slow or stop (https://www.carparts.com/brakes.htm). Below are two issues that may occur with your car brake pedal and what they indicate:
  • Spongy Pedal- If the brake pedal has a spongy feel it is an indication that there is a problem with the hydraulic system like air, weak line, or brake fluid. This issue should be addressed immediately (http://knowhow.napaonline.com/ten-ways-car-warning-need-brake-service/).
  • Hard Pedal- If the brake pedal is stiff and hard to push it is an indication that there is a problem within the power mechanism and the correct pressure is not making its way through the brake system. This issue should be addressed immediately (http://knowhow.napaonline.com/ten-ways-car-warning-need-brake-service/).
