The factory-installed brake system in your Toyota seems rather simple. You apply pressure with your foot to the brake pedal. Your vehicle slows, or, with enough pressure, comes to a stop. Behind the scenes, things are a little more involved. The pressure you put on the brake pedal forces brake fluid out of the master brake cylinder and through a series of brake hoses and brake lines. That fluid depresses your brake calipers, which push the brake pads against the brake rotors. The friction caused by this rubbing slows the rotation of your tires. Enough friction, and your vehicle stops completely.
Don't Take Chances with Your Brake Rotors
The high heat, combined with the wear and tear of everyday driving, can cause even the best brake rotors to eventually go bad. Signs of failing brake rotors include scraping or squealing noises. If you feel vibrations when you apply the brake pedal, that's an indication that your brake rotor may be warping. When that happens, your brake pads are no longer able to apply consistent, even pressure against the rotors. Not only does that make it harder to stop, but it also may lead to a complete brake system failure. When your brake rotors need to be replaced, be sure to only use the highest quality parts.
