So did he change the pads or not? If he changed the pads, it'll go away as the pads break in.

Dunno. That could explain why your brake fluid was low. Relax, B. Your pops has it under control!

Not yet! You should use longer, gentler braking for a little while before you do that. Otherwise, you risk cracking the pad at the edges.

I usually wait a week or so before I do the hard break-in. You'll feel it through the pedal when they're close to seated, then you can break them in by doing progressively harder stops from high speed.
