Brake Repair

At Mr. Transmission Milex, we understand that the brake system is one of the most important safety systems in your vehicle. Because of this, keeping up with brake repairs and maintenance services is critical to your safety on the road. The brake system is comprised of many components, including brake pads, cylinders, drums, and rotors. These components all endure wear and tear with miles driven and will need replacement and maintenance at some point.

If you are diligent with your brake system maintenance, you can hopefully prevent the need for major brake service repairs. Mr. Transmission Milex offers a road-ready Performance Check, where we will inspect your brake system for any needed maintenance or repairs. Maintenance may include flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system and brake pad replacement. Brake repairs may include replacement of hoses or rotors.

Pollution hurts air conditioners

A major reason that air conditioners break down so often is that air conditioners use air from the outside. Now, we all know how dirty that air is. We are actually impressed at how long air conditioners are able to hold up. We have all had to clean the filters in the AC units at our homes and those things get dirty in a month or two. Those filters are just filtering the air from around the house. Your car’s AC, on the other hand, has to take in the air on the road. It has smoke from other cars in it, dust, and emissions as well. That’s why you need to get it services after every few months. If you don’t get AC maintenance done you will have to get AC repairs done.

FAQs About Brake Repair Services

How can you prevent damage to your brake system?

Each component within the brake system needs service at some time. It is likely the brake pads will need replacing when they become too thin. If pads are not replaced and wear away too much they can damage the rotors or drums. Damaged rotors or drums can warp or crack and cause complete brake failure. Keeping up with brake pad maintenance can help keep you safe and prevent more costly repairs.

When should you service your brake system?

If you notice poor braking performance you should bring your vehicle in for a brake system inspection. Also consult your owners manual to find at what mileage the brake system should be serviced. Have your brakes inspected at every oil change.

How do you prevent brakes from wearing out quickly?

Several factors besides consistent maintenance can affect how long your brakes last. Driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and quality of brake lining material can all factor into the longevity of your brakes.
