Brake Service Sacramento
At John Ellis & Son, we recommend that you visit us every 20,000 miles for a comprehensive brake inspection. We will give your braking system a thorough inspection from your brake fluid to the parking brake to ensure that your system is in proper working condition. The last thing we want is for you to leave our shop in a vehicle that is unsafe. Some of the things we will inspect during your brake service include:
- Checking your brake pads for excessive or accelerated wear
- Inspecting your brake fluid for condition and level and flushing and replacing it if necessary
- Performing a leak check on your brake hoses and master cylinder
- Inspecting your calipers and rotors
- Taking a look at your discs and drums to make sure they are not worn down
- Testing your parking brake
- Inspecting your wheel cylinders for accelerated wear
All of these components play a major role in your braking system and if any of them are not working properly or are in poor condition it could put you in a potentially dangerous situation. Our goal is to ensure that your entire braking system is healthy and safe before you leave our shop.
