Your vehicle's brakes are hydraulic, meaning they use fluid to operate (there are also compressed-air brakes, but they're used on tractor-trailers and other large trucks). The fluid transmits the pressure through brake lines that go to each wheel, where it's used to activate the brakes.
No Brake pressure? Leaking brake fluid? We are equipped to replace/repair Master cylinders and brake calipers as well as diagnose any ABS issues.
Sounds, smells and sensations signal brake problems: Screeching, grinding, squealing, rubbing, and other eardrum-piercing noises are common indicators that your brake pads & shoes require inspection. This should be addressed before worn pads cause damage to other parts, which could result in more expensive repairs.
