PREVENTATIVE VEHICLE MAINTENANCE IN HOLLIDAYSBURG, PA

Is It Time For New Brakes? How Will You Know?

Just like tires and wiper blades, brakes are another vital component of your vehicle that will need to be regularly serviced and replaced. As your brake pads wear out over time, you'll notice decreased braking performance, meaning it's time to have those brake pads replaced here at Stuckey Ford. Listed below are other signs that it may be time for new brakes:

Grinding Noise

Do you hear a harsh grinding noise every time you step on the brakes? If so, chances are that metal-on-metal noise is caused by worn brake pads that are grinding against the rotor. You'll want to address this noise right away before it causes significant damage to your vehicle's rotors.

Pulling

Is your vehicle pulling to one side while braking? This may be caused by uneven brake pad wear, dirty brake fluid, or a stuck brake caliper. If you're experiencing this, have your car serviced right away here at Stuckey Ford located in Hollidaysburg, PA.

Squealing

Wondering where that high-pitched squealing is coming from while you're driving? That could be your brake pad wear indicator, a small piece of metal that emits a high-pitched squeal when your brake pads are too far worn.

Brake Pad Thickness

Make sure to have the thickness of your brake pads checked regularly, as this can prevent you from driving with worn-out brake pads. Typically, if pads measure 2-3mm thick they need an immediate replacement, if they measure between 4-5mm they will need to be replaced in the near future. You can have your brake pad thickness measured here at Stuckey Ford, just ask your service advisor for more information.

Vibration/Pulsation

Do you feel a vibration or pulse in your brake pedal while braking? If you do, this could be a result of unevenly worn rotors, and replacement is recommended immediately. Have your uneven rotors replaced by our Ford Factory Trained service technicians here at Stuckey Ford today!

Pedal Responsiveness

Got a "mushy" or a non-responsive brake pedal? This could mean you have a problem with your vehicle's braking system that needs immediate attention. Stop by Stuckey Ford to have your "mushy" brake pedal fixed today!

What To Expect From Your Car, Truck or SUV Battery

Batteries in modern cars, trucks and SUVs tend to last for thousands of miles without ever needing service. However, the lifespan of your car, truck or SUVs battery can vary depending on your driving habits and local weather conditions. Extreme cold or blistering heat can shorten the life of your vehicle's battery, so it's a good idea to have your battery routinely inspected and tested each year.

Stop by Stuckey Ford today and ask your service advisor about having your car, truck or SUVs battery tested and inspected.

Conditions That May Shorten the Life of Your Car, Truck or SUVs Battery

Extreme Temperatures

Whether it's sub-zero temperatures in the winter or sweltering hot heat in the summer, extreme weather conditions can severely affect the life and performance of the battery in your car, truck or SUV. A good rule of thumb is to have your battery inspected here at Stuckey Ford every six months to ensure it's in tip-top shape.

Left Your Lights On?

Let's face it, sometimes we forget to turn off the headlights in our car, truck or SUV which can drain the battery rapidly. Even though your vehicle may start, the battery's reserve power may still be depleted. If you've left your lights on recently, bring your vehicle in to have the battery checked here at Stuckey Ford today!

Corroded or Leaking Battery

If you notice leaking or a build-up of corrosion around your battery terminals - then it's time for a new battery. Have your leaking or corroded battery replaced by our Ford factory-trained service technicians here at Stuckey Ford.
