As you know, excessive heat is harmful to the car and can lead to serious problems. Parts such as radiators, cylinder heads, engines, exhaust inlets and outlets, etc. are such parts that absorb a lot of heat. But there is another important point in the car that you should pay attention to: heating the pads and wheel discs. You must be familiar with the smell of pads and the smell of burn pads. In the following, we will discuss the reasons for this problem.
Stopping the car is due to the friction that occurs after pressing the pedal between the brake pad and the wheel disc, and this friction generates a lot of heat.
If your car brakes are defective, you can smell the pads and you feel uncomfortable pedaling, check to see if you notice any of these signs:
Brake loosening: You feel spongy when you press the brake pedal.
Seeing smoke while braking: When you brake, you see smoke coming out next to the car tires.
Smell of brake pads: After a bit of driving, you can smell the smell of burnt pads or the smell of eggs.
Hearing the sound of parts: You press the brake and you hear the sound of pads or some parts.
The above signs all indicate that your brake system has a problem due to heat and needs to be mechanically inspected.
Every car has a braking system, and if the car does not have a particular problem, it should stop the vehicle naturally without observing any strange signs. But if you see different symptoms according to the above, it is due to technical problems, some of which are listed below:
• The pad or disc is badly or skewed.
• Damaged brake system components; Such as brake hose, brake fluid and other parts.
• Worn parts or pads.
• Brake disc warping.
• Defective parts used in the braking system; Like a bad brake pad.
What to do when inhaling the smell of burn pads?
Slowly slow down and stop in a safe place to cool the brake pads, wheel discs and the entire brake system. Then find the first technical center and go there to check the car. Smell of brake pads is one of the reasons for using poor pads or problems in the brake system. Be careful not to speed up along the way and drive slowly so that no more serious problems occur and you do not incur more costs.
How to prevent the pads from overheating and swelling
We all know that prevention is better than any treatment. So always be careful of your car’s braking system. The braking section is the most important and involved part of any car that needs constant inspection. Make a regular schedule to always check your car with a set schedule. You may think about the cost of doing this, but take the importance of the brakes seriously and think about the safety of your life and that of the occupants. Here are some programs to prevent problems:
• Use only OEM quality spare parts with ISO standards.
• Find a professional repairman and do not leave the car in the hands of anyone.
• Preferably replace the parts in pairs. Left or right pad replacement alone is not correct.
• Check the thickness of the pads and discs yourself or your repairman for wear and tear.
We repeat again. Serious problems will occur if you have even the best pads and disks, but they are not installed properly by the repairman.
Why are ceramic pads used even in rally competitions?
Ceramic pads have a special function in general due to having different compounds in their structure. These brake pad models offer better braking when heated, unlike other pads such as metal pads, organic pads, etc. This means that when you travel long distances or travel on busy streets and highways, you feel comfortable, because the hotter the ceramic pad, the better it works, and this is why this pad is used for rally racing cars. The compounds in these pads do not produce the smell of eggs after heating and are free of any pathogens as well as dust.
