Are brakes different on diesel trucks?

Yes — since diesel trucks are typically used to haul big loads, regular brakes, rotors, and calipers just don't provide enough stopping power.

When should I replace my brake pads?

Depending on your make and model, you'll notice some of the following when it's time to bring your truck in for brake service:

  1. Warning light comes on for low brake pads: This will be a dashboard indicator light that signals it’s time to replace your brake pads.
  2. The Squeal: There's a piece of metal built into your brake pads that, when the pads are worn down enough, starts rubbing against the rotor when you brake. It's super annoying (on purpose) so that you'll be forced to bring in your truck for service.
  3. Grinding noise: If you hear grinding, you've waited too long. Your pads are gone and are now rubbing against the rotor. Bring it in for service right away or you could be at risk of an accident.
  4. Your brake pads actually look think: If you can get in behind your tire to take a look, you can see if there's barely any pad left.

I think I have a brake problem. Can I drive to the shop?

No — dude. Obviously not. If your brakes are not operating properly, bite the bullet and get a tow. It's not worth putting your life and others live's at risk.

That said, if your brakes are just getting routine maintenance, by all means drive to the shop. If the squealer is going, it should be safe to drive. Just make sure you take care of it sooner rather than later.

ProMaster has got to be the most redundant vehicle name ever. That said, our mechanics are diesel brake promasters.

How many miles are diesel truck brake pads good for?

Obviously it's going to depend on how your drive but diesel truck brake pads typically last between 20,000 miles and 60,000 miles.

Customer Reviews

Jeff Patterson

Had brakes repaired on my 2012 Expedition. Completely satisfied. Owner is honest and makes a great effort to see that each repair is to done correctly and that the customer is satisfied. Brant Jones has been my mechanic for 18 years. An honest and helpful mechanic is a good find. Any one star reviews are most likely written by someone who cannot be pleased or by a competing auto repair shop.

Absolutely fantastic! I work for a roadside assistance company and I called then to help us with a tow the other night, Blue was amazing. He got there quickly and was super pleasant on the phone. If I can even get more business their way they will get it every time. #teamblue

They did a quality repair job on rusted brake lines on my truck. Brakes work much better now. Fast service. Very reasonable pricing. I plan on going back for anymore service needed for my truck or car.

Lou was friendly and informative when he towed my vehicle. The repairs done to my vehicle were fast and inexpensive and the women at the front desk was great. Cannot recommend these people enough.
