Anti-Lock Brake System

At Downtown Auto, we offer diagnostic and repair services for Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS). ABS helps maintain control of the vehicle by preventing the wheels from locking up during braking, which can cause skidding. If the ABS light illuminates on your dashboard, bring your car to us for a diagnosis and prompt repair.

Brake Fluid Flushes

Over time, brake fluid tends to absorb moisture from the air, leading to a reduction in the efficiency of the brake system and causing the fluid to become corrosive. This may result in damage to the system. To ensure the use of fresh fluid, it is crucial to schedule regular brake fluid flushes. Our experts at Downtown Auto can guide you on when it’s necessary to flush your brake fluid.

Brake Hoses

The brake hose serves as a conduit for transmitting pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. If the hose is crushed, it can cause a delay or sluggishness in the brake, while a leak in the hose can result in brake failure, including the entire brake system. While brake hoses may not require frequent replacement, it is crucial to change them immediately upon the first indication of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement

Issues with brake pads can be typically detected through the presence of squealing or grinding noises when applying the brakes. When the brake pads completely wear out, you’ll hear a grinding sound resembling metal rubbing against metal, indicating damage to the rotors or drums. It’s important to seek assistance from an automotive repair specialist as soon as you notice any signs of brake problems to prevent further damage.

Caliper Replacement

The brake caliper holds the brake pads and encloses the rotor in a clamp-like manner, resulting in the pressing of the pads against the rotor when the brakes are applied. If there’s an issue with the brake caliper, it could lead to uneven braking, causing a pull from side to side while braking. Moreover, uneven braking could also result in a loss of control of your vehicle, particularly during poor weather conditions. Therefore, it’s crucial to get in touch with Downtown Auto as soon as possible in case of any brake caliper problems.
