Keep enjoying that sporty and fun Isuzu you own - with peace of mind that comes from maintaining your Isuzu brake system. Ever since automobiles have been invented, brakes have been a marvel of engineering and physics. Just consider the physics that are involved with the simple act of braking: you depress your brake pedal, and then your car transmits the force from your foot to its brakes through a fluid. That force is applied through leverage and hydraulic force multiplication. The brakes transmit the force to the tires using friction, and the tires transmit that force to the road using friction. Brakes are split into two categories: disc and drum. Your Isuzu brakes, if they are disc brakes, are made of brake calipers, brake pads, rotors and caliper mounting hardware. If you have Isuzu drum brakes, they consist of brake backing plates, brake drums, brake shoe self-adjusters, brake shoes, brake springs and wheel cylinders. All these parts are vulnerable to wear and tear. Luckily, your Isuzu brake components are engineered to give you plenty of warning indications of deterioration. You will hear screeching, or feel a vibration or pulsing when you hit the brakes. The brake pedals might feel unusually 'soft' or 'hard.' If you detect these symptoms, inspect and replace the faulty Isuzu brake parts immediately.
