Q: Car fans stopped working

asked by on

My brakes are making a squeaking and grinding sound when they are hot.

The brake pads on most vehicles are metallic type brake pads and may exhibit a metal grinding sound that may be normal or the brake pad being worn can make the same sound. The best recommendation is to have your brake system checked. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic inspect your braking noise and see what repairs are necessary.
