BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR, Fredericksburg, VA

At Auto Chiefs Service Shop, we want our Fredericksburg 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 540-628-0100, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Auto Chiefs Service Shop 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 Auto Chiefs Service Shop 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 Auto Chiefs Service Shop about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
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.

Caliper Replacement
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 Auto Chiefs Service Shop as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
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. Auto Chiefs Service Shop will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

This place is a goldmine for automotive repairs. The only place I have been to where the staff gives you honesty. A rare treat in that industry. There have been so many times where they have reviewed my vehicle's issues and gave me realistic notices about the repair work. One example: The transmission in my old car was slipping. They diagnosed the issue and advised me against the repair on the car to avoid me putting money into a vehicle, that based off its age, would be back in the shop a year later for another major repair. No other shop I 've been to would have turn down work for the sake of their customer's wallet. I highly recommend this place.
