ASE Certified Brake Experts at John's Automotive Care.

The braking systems of 100 years ago have transformed from crude stopping mechanisms into intricate, dependable and efficient pieces of stopping power. John's Automotive Care's brake experts keep up with these technological innovations and know how to diagnose and repair every aspect of your braking system.

Because brake systems vary by vehicle make and model, the basic system consists of disc brakes in the front, and either disk or drum brakes in the rear. No matter what make or model of vehicle you drive, you can count on John's ASE Certified technicians to keep your brakes in tip-top condition.

Brakes - The Master Cylinder

Your vehicle's braking system is basically easy to understand. When you push down on the brake pedal, the master cylinder converts that pressure into hydraulic pressure. This hydraulic pressure sends brake fluid into your vehicle's wheel brakes. The work of the master cylinder is extremely important because brake fluid is an important component of your braking system. Your vehicle's brakes depend upon having the proper amount of fluid, because they rely on the master cylinder operating efficiently.

Whether your brake system is experiencing an inadequate level of brake fluid or a faulty master cylinder, you are at risk that your brakes will fail. Don't ignore the warning signs of bad brakes, such as squealing, squeaking, or a squishy or spongy brake pedal. These types of symptoms can quickly evolve into hazardous driving problems.

Brake Wheel Cylinders / Calipers / Shoes

Your braking system's wheel cylinders consist of cylinders surrounded by two rubber-sealed pistons. These pistons connect the piston with the brake shoe. When brake pressure is applied, pistons are forced out, pushing the shoes into the drum. Calipers squeeze brake pads onto the rotor to stop your car. Should any of these brake essential parts fail, your vehicle will not stop when you expect it to.

John's Automotive Care knows brakes! Give us a call or bring your vehicle in for our brake experts to inspect your braking system and make sure your wheel cylinders and brakes shoes are in perfect working order. Give us a call at John's Automotive Care and we'll make sure all the components of your braking system are in good condition and working properly.

Brake Lines, Hoses and Clamps

Steel braided brake lines and high pressure, shock, and road resistant brake hoses are the channels that deliver the pressurized brake fluid into the braking unit(s) at each wheel. These lines and hoses, and the clamps that hold them in place, can wear or even break over mileage and time. The loss of these important pieces of your braking system can be devastating.

John's Automotive Care's ASE Certified technicians have the experience and skills to make sure your lines, hoses and clamps are supporting your braking system properly that help your brakes work when you want them to.

Brake Pads and Drum Brake Shoes

Disc brakes use fluid (released by the master cylinder) to force pressure into a caliper, where it presses against a piston. The piston then squeezes two brake pads against the rotor, forcing it to stop. Brake shoes consist of a steel shoe with a steel shoe with friction material bonded to it. This is an important braking procedure. If your brake pads or shoe are worn, your brakes will not work properly.

It is common for brake pads and shoes to wear unevenly. When this happens you may experience unequal braking pressure. It is important that these particular parts of your braking system are maintained for efficient braking power. Our expert ASE Certified Technicians at John's Automotive Care will check over your entire braking system to give you the braking power you want when you need it.
