The braking system of your heavy-duty diesel truck is assembled from a very intricate network of components, which require regular service by certified and professional mechanics. If individual elements of your brake system wear or erode, it could result in a total failure of the entire system. If you need brake service, it is vital that you come and see us at Foothills Group immediately. This way we can identify and address any brake system problems early on.
The last thing you want is for your brakes to stop working. The moment you lose control over your vehicle is the moment you put yourself and others on the road around you, in serious danger. Not being able to slow down, maneuver turns or make stops is a strong indication that something is wrong with your brake system. Nothing is worth taking chances with your safety by ignoring braking issues. Visit us at Foothills Group in Calgary and Lethbridge AB., and we will thoroughly check out the status of your brake system.
Why you should pay attention to brake fluid
Brake fluid flushes are recommended every 30,000 miles or 2 years, depending on your braking and driving systems. Scheduling regular brake fluid service is important because it can prevent more serious brake system issues from occurring. At Foothills Group, we include brake fluid checks in all our preventative maintenance programs.
It is very important to monitor the brake fluid in your heavy-duty truck because of the heavy loads and impressive demands put on these machines. Every vehicle model has manufacturer recommendations for brake service and brake fluid maintenance. The mechanics at Foothills Group combine these manufacturer recommendations with other factors such as the usage of your vehicle, its age and mileage, average load weight and common road conditions
What’s involved in brake service?
Corrosion and rust can cause structural damage to your braking system, which can lead to costly repairs. In addition, the weight of a semi-truck places a lot of strain on brake components and can cause them to deteriorate over time.
The components of the brake system do not have an unlimited lifespan, which makes it extra important to get your brakes checked out for routine maintenance. For your safety, and for the safety of everyone around you on the road, make sure to get your brakes serviced and maintained regularly. Schedule a regular brake inspection with Foothills Group to guarantee that your brakes are working to the best of their ability.
