Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid absorbs water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive and possibly damaging the braking system. It is important to have a brake fluid flush regularly. Talk to our technicians when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, Call us at 856.728.2000 and we will be happy set up an appointment to diagnose and fix your breaking problems.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliber problem could cause uneven braking, making your car have uneven braking, and can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, you should ask us to look at this as soon as possible.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Your brake pad problems is usually identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear the grinding sound of metal-on-metal when braking. But don't wait for that ugly sound to worsen to the point you need to have the rotors or drums resurfaced. Do it early to save money and be a bit safer.
Rotors are supposed to outlive pads. But excessive uneven wear, the appearance of hard spots and/or heat damage (cracking, glazing and discoloration) can make good rotors go bad. In your disc brake system if attended sooner then later then resurfacing becomes and option rather then replacement. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. A-Jacks Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
A leaking brake hose may have serious consequences. While you can easily add brake fluid to the master cylinder's reservoir, the leak may cause air to build up in the brake line. This buildup can cause the entire brake system, to fail.
A crushed brake hose can cause two different problems. The crushed hose may restrict fluid flow and cause the brake served by the hose to respond slowly or it may also hold pressure on the brake after the driver has released the pedal.
A ballooning brake hose expands when the driver applies the brakes. Ballooning causes the brake fluid system to use some of its pressure to push out the brake hose, preventing that pressure from traveling to the brake and in turn causing the brake pedal to feel soft and reducing braking effectiveness.
