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 Cahill's Tire & Auto Service 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 Cahill's Tire & Auto Service 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 Cahill's Tire & Auto Service 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. Cahill's Tire & Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
What People Say About Us
I am on disability and severely needed 4 new tires on my car. I called around to multiple places to get quotes on tires and everywhere I called I couldn't afford, or the place was trying to get away with giving me the worst tires at the highest price. I called Cahills and got a quote for 4 tires balanced with an alignment cheaper than anywhere around, and the tires were better quality than any of the other places. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I had taken my car to the dealership 2 days prior to going to Cahills and was told there was a wheel bearing issue, and Cahills confirmed this but quoted me less than half the price for repair as the dealership. I'll be calling tomorrow to schedule wheel bearing repair with Cahills.
Wonderful customer service-called about a radiator leak and they were able to get my car in the very next day. Job was done in 1 day and just below their quoted price. My husband is pretty handy and luckily is able to take care of most maintenance and issues but for all jobs too big for the drive way, these are definitely my go to mechanics-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Thank you again for such great service!
