Soft Brakes Are Related to the Pressure in Your Brake Lines

If you're feeling a soft pedal when you step on the brakes, there are a few things that could be going on, and they all have to do with your brake lines. Left unfixed, these issues could escalate from a minor annoyance to a major safety issue. To find out more, read below.

Soft brakes could be a sign that there is:

  1. Air in the brake lines, leading to a lack of pressure.
  2. Damage to the brake lines, leading to loss of brake fluid and lack of pressure.
  3. Corrosion to the disc brake caliper, leading to a leak of brake fluid and lack of pressure.
  4. Corrosion to the wheel cylinders, leading to brake fluid leak and loss in pressure.
  5. Corrosion to the master cylinder, which could cause a loss in brake fluid and pressure
