A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features,
and we want to make sure that 360 Auto Repair Services customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads
are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not
comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 925-757-3000 or
visit us in Antioch and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's
safety and reliability.
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 360 Auto Repair Services 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 360 Auto Repair Services 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 360 Auto Repair Services 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. 360 Auto Repair Services will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
What People Say About Us
Ladies, if you've ever had issues with condescending shops before, this is the shop to go to instead! These men are incredibly courteous, explain things clearly, charge fair prices, and do incredible work. I had a $1000+ repair I had to do on my car, and they're the only shop I'd trust because I knew it would get done well, and probably cheaper than anyone else, which makes it well worth the cost. I've been going to them for years and will continue going as long as I live in Antioch. My car is so important to me as a broke 20-something commuter, and they're the only place I go. I'd give 3000/5 stars if I could :)
