Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system in place, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road when braking. Failure of the ABS can increase the risk of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes causing you and/or others serious harm. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and/or repaired by experts regularly so that the ABS light stays off.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture. The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point and corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the boiling point lowered, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce and counter the effects of the absorbed moisture, we recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake flush involves the replacement of the used contaminated fluid with clean fresh fluid.
The brakes are a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle, usually by means of friction. In short, the brakes inhibit your vehicle's motion, it lets you stop whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle, without them you would not be able to stop the vehicle and that can lead to serious injury for yourself and others.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the motor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A problem with the caliper could cause uneven braking making your vehicle slide forward when braking and can even cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions.
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 the wheels to a stop. However, over time the friction can cause grooves and cracks to appear, but resurfacing your rotors can get you back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling.
A chassis is the vehicle's internal framework that supports the body and other components such as the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To keep a strong reliable vehicle, have the chassis checked for defects.
The driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less than the engine and transmission. If the driveline fails then the vehicle would not be able to move since the energy cannot be transferred from the engine to the wheel axles. Frequently get your driveline inspected and serviced.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The shocks convert kinetic energy to another form of energy in order to function. When your shocks are working properly they reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and easier vehicle handling. If the shocks develop a problem, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant and the vehicle may sway when turning.
Similar to shocks, your vehicle's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over the road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your vehicle's suspension, which means they support your vehicle's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 to 60,000 miles because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time.
