At Wyoming Automotive, we want our Wyoming customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 513-821-8408, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Wyoming Automotive offers.
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, visit Wyoming Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Wyoming Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake 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 caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Wyoming Automotive as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Wyoming Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
They seem like very honest people! My car was in and out very quickly with a decent amount of work done. They suggested some stuff that could be replaced, but were not upset when I told them I would try replacing the brakes myself.Michael S
Our family has used Wyoming Automotive for over 20 years. It is a family owned business and we can always depend on Wyoming Automotive for honest and professional service for all of our vehicles. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for prompt and trustworthy automotive care and advice.
I've been taking my car here for about a year and have had nothing but great experiences! I really trust them and would recommend them to anyone.
I first started going to these guys when my warranty (and free oil changes) was up. They are friendly, prompt, and reasonably priced.Twice since, I have had unusual, unpredictable, mechanical problems occur the day before I was to leave on vacation . Does this happen to everybody else, or is it just me? Anyway, both times they were able to fix my car quickly enough to allow me to make it to our destination on time. Places like this used to be easy to find in my younger days. They are few and far between today.
Mark and his team take great care of our vehicles. My husband and I are very happy with the work that is performed and the pricing that goes with that work. Best thing of all, is that we trust him to let us know what is wrong and they do not try to run up the bill by saying there are problems with parts that are just fine!
