That common saying, “a car that can’t start is an inconvenience, but a car that can’t stop is a danger”, highlights just how critical a vehicle’s braking system is. Some brake problems are best handled by professionals, and basic diagnostics and tasks should be something that every vehicle owner knows, but regardless of your skill level, our trained ASE certified mechanics have been performing brake repair and services since 1976 on all makes and models. Weather you’re looking for new pads, rotors or just a brake fluid check or flush, you will be rest assured that your vehicles brakes will always keep you and your family safe.

Here’s some Brake Information to help you make the best decisions with your vehicles brake system.

If your automobile has power brakes but seems to be taking excessive effort to stop, you may need to replace your power booster.

If you feel that your brakes are low, pump the brake pedal a few times as you drive.

If pumping the pedal makes the brakes more responsive, either a brake adjustment is needed or you are running low on brake fluid.

If you know how to check your brake fluid and find that it is at normal operating levels, it may be a more serious problem.

If your vehicle is taking a longer distance than usual to stop, it either needs brake adjusting or new brake linings.

If your vehicle pulls to one side when you brake, you may have a stuck caliper and/or a brake fluid leak.

If your brake pedal pulses during non-emergency stops, your brakes may be overheating from overuse.

If your steering wheel shakes when you brake, your front brake rotors may be warped and need refinishing or replacement.

If your brakes squeal when you stop, your brake pads or other Components may be worn or missing small parts.

If your brakes make a grinding noise that can be felt in the pedal, they are probably severely worn and should be repaired immediately.

If your vehicle bounces up and down during a stop, your shock absorbers may be worn out.

Never procrastinate on brake work, further driving could cause much more expensive damage to more major Components of your brake system. If your vehicle is showing any of the above symptoms, take care of the situation immediately. Brake failure can cost not only your own life, but the lives of others.
