At our auto repair shops in Houston, My Transmission Experts offers a wide range of repairs for both import and domestic automotive brake systems. Every auto mechanic in our Houston shops understands how important it is for you to know how the brake system in your car or truck keeps you and your passengers safe. The components of your car’s brake system are not designed to endure the life of your car and will wear down over time as you drive in and around Houston’s streets. The most common brake replacement service we perform at our Houston shops is replacing the pads (also known as shoes). This is because the brake pad material wears down against the braking rotor every time you depress your pedal. If the brake pads are allowed to wear down for an extended period of time, the underlying metal surface of the pads will come into touch with the metal rotors of your brakes (aka drums). This condition will not only put you in danger, but it will also require extra service and raise your brake repair costs.
Our auto experts at My Transmission Experts stress to our customers that knowing when to have the brake system in your car or truck repaired at our Houston automotive repair shop is critical to keeping your brake repair costs to a minimum. Knowing the warning signals of potential brake failure can help you avoid costly brake repair costs for your car or truck. Your own senses of hearing, touch, and sight can be quite helpful to you. The emergence of a brake warning light on your dashboard, low or filthy brake fluid, grinding noises, and a “spongy” feeling when depressing your brake pad are all classic signs of braking problems.
Our technicians are qualified and competent to service all types of front and rear brake systems at our Houston automotive repair shops. At our Houston repair shop, one of our professional vehicle mechanics will perform a full brake inspection to ensure that both your front and rear brakes are in good working order. We also provide you with a brake problem diagnostic, as well as service choices and a pricing estimate for brake repair. Our mechanics are experts in everything from brake rotor maintenance to brake cylinder and pad replacement, as well as anti-lock braking system issues. When you bring your car or truck to our Houston auto repair service center, our skilled team of automotive brake professionals can perform manufacturer-recommended vehicle maintenance such as a brake fluid flush to remove air and moisture from your brake lines and brake fluid replacement.
