Brakes Servicing and Brake Repair Tomball, Texas
Anti-Lock Brakes Most vehicles today are equipped with anti-lock brake systems (ABS) as standard equipment. ABS is designed to improve stopping distances, while helping to maintain control over steering-and is particularly useful on slippery surfaces. ABS basically takes over in a panic stop with computerized sensors, pulsing the brakes on and off repeatedly and rapidly to help prevent the wheels from locking up and your vehicle from skidding. Complete Maintenance and Care: When you start your vehicle, there should be a light on the dashboard reading BRAKE, ANTILOCK or ABS. If the light stays on or flashes, there could be a fault in the ABS system and you should have your car, truck or SUV inspected immediately by a professional. Bring your vehicle to the experts at ALL-PRO TOTAL CAR CARE.
Brake Fluid Brake fluid is a specially formulated liquid used in the brake hydraulic system. Brake fluids absorb moisture over time and can become contaminated. Maintenance and Care: Some manufacturers recommend replacing your brake fluid at regular intervals. Your owner's will provide factory recommended maintenance intervals for your specific vehicle. Or bring your vehicle to the experts at ALL-PRO who will review with you these maintenance schedules for your vehicle.
Brake Pads, Shoes, Drums & Rotors The brake pads and shoes are the wearable elements of the braking system. Rotors and drums are metal and more expensive to replace.
Brakes Maintenance and Care: Your car's brake system should be inspected annually to ensure everything is in good working order. Brakes over time will wear out, so eventually they will need replacement. Catching brake problems before you reach the metal-to-metal point (likely to mean replacement of rotors or drums) may save you money, so if you have any of the common symptoms of brake trouble, have your brakes checked promptly. Symptoms of brake trouble include squealing brakes, a spongy or hard pedal when you press on the brakes, or grinding brakes.
