Brake Inspections

We offer thorough brake inspections to ensure the safety and reliability of your vehicle’s braking system. Our skilled technicians will carefully examine all components of your brakes to assess their condition and identify any potential issues. Here’s what our brake inspection entails:

Visual Inspection: Our technicians will visually inspect the brake components, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, brake lines, and brake fluid reservoir. We’ll look for any signs of wear, damage, or leakage that could affect the braking performance.

Measurement of Brake Pad Thickness: We’ll measure the thickness of the brake pads to determine their remaining life. Worn brake pads may compromise your vehicle’s stopping power and require replacement.

Rotor Inspection: We’ll inspect the brake rotors for any signs of warping, uneven wear, or scoring. Damaged or worn-out rotors can result in reduced braking efficiency and may need resurfacing or replacement.

Brake Caliper Assessment: Our technicians will inspect the brake calipers for proper operation, ensuring they are not sticking or causing uneven pressure on the brake pads. Malfunctioning calipers can lead to uneven brake wear or a spongy brake pedal feel.

Brake Line and Hose Inspection: We’ll check the brake lines and hoses for any leaks, cracks, or damage that could compromise the brake fluid pressure or cause brake failure. Damaged lines or hoses will need to be repaired or replaced promptly.

Brake Fluid Analysis: We’ll assess the condition and level of the brake fluid in the reservoir. Brake fluid that is contaminated or low may indicate a leak or the need for a fluid flush and replacement.

Test Drive and Brake Performance Evaluation: To ensure the overall functionality of your brakes, our technicians may perform a test drive to evaluate the braking system’s performance, responsiveness, and noise levels.

Fluid Service

Over time, brake fluid can become contaminated, leading to reduced brake performance and potential safety hazards. Our skilled technicians will perform a comprehensive brake fluid service, which includes draining the old fluid, inspecting the brake lines for leaks or damage, and filling the system with fresh, high-quality brake fluid that meets manufacturer specifications. This service helps maintain proper brake hydraulic pressure, prevents moisture buildup, and extends the lifespan of brake components. By keeping your brake fluid clean and at the right level, we ensure optimal braking performance and enhance your overall safety on the road.

Brake fluid is unique compared to all of the other fluids in your vehicle. It is “Hygroscopic” which is unique because it is a “dry fluid” that absorbs the moisture in the system. This is designed to keep the moisture/water content out of the system because it lowers the boiling point of the fluid in which could diminish the braking performance under heavy use situations. Though, even if you are an easy braking driver, this fluid is still absorbing moisture and becomes corrosive to the internal components of the braking system. This can cause deterioration of common components like brake calipers, wheel cylinders, ABS components etc. The best thing that anyone can do to prevent this corrosion and deterioration is to change/flush out the brake fluid system, regardless of usage every 24 months.

Anit-lock Brake System (ABS) Service

The ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) is a crucial safety feature that helps prevent wheels from locking up during sudden braking or on slippery surfaces, allowing you to maintain steering control. Our skilled technicians will diagnose and address any ABS-related issues, including ABS warning light illuminations, abnormal braking behavior, or loss of ABS functionality. We utilize advanced diagnostic tools to pinpoint the problem, whether it’s a faulty sensor, hydraulic pump, or control module. With our expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, we’ll perform the necessary repairs or replacements to restore the proper functioning of your ABS.
