Brake Repair


Brakes are crucial to keeping you and your loved ones safe on the road.  By having your brakes inspected twice a year, you can save money by catching any problems before they can become costly.  


What do we do during the inspection of your brakes?


1)  We check your master cylinder

The master cylinder is the heart of your vehicle's braking system, and it holds the brake fluid when it is not being delivered to the brakes through the brake lines.  If brake fluid leaks because of the master cylinder is worn or brake lines are plugged or even worse broken, the fluid cannot be delivered, the brake pads will become ruined.

2) We inspect your brake fluid

The brake fluid itself can become dirty or contaminated as it draws in moisture.  it picks up rust and other debris, and eventually breaks down from excessive heat.  When you have clean brake fluid it is usually clear or a slight yellow tint.  If your brake fluid is brown or black it is time for a technician to assist you.  Old or dirty brake fluid can damage your internal braking system.  

3) We inspect your brake lines

The brake lines connect to the master cylinder through a combination valve, which combines metering and proportioning valves.  It regulates the pressure on the front and rear wheels to make sure both sets of brakes are applied simultaneously. If you have a faulty or malfunctioning combination valve it can cause your wheels to lock up.  To ensure your continued safety the experts and John Amato Hyundai Superstore Service will make sure your vehicle's combination valve is working properly.

4) We inspect your brake pads and shoes

Brake pads and shoes can be made of ceramic, metal, or organic materials while the disk rotors and drums they press against are made of metal.  Because the pads and shoes create friction to stop the vehicle, they gradually wear over time and may even wear away completely, letting the metal of the calipers and cylinders to which they are attached grind against the rotors and drums and damage them also.  Some pads have a metal strip attached to them that sounds a warning whistle when the pad becomes too worn, but this strip sounds only when the vehicle is in motion and the brakes are not being applied.  When we at John Amato Hyundai Superstore inspect your brakes, we will make sure that your brakes are in good working condition.
