Power Brakes

Brake Service At Cordova Auto Centers In San Antonio

Most San Antonio drivers know that braking means slowing or stopping a vehicle. The mechanical aspects of the brakes themselves are just one issue. Thereís also the power brake system and brake fluid. And then there are the tires, which are critical to the effectiveness of the brakes.

Letís step back. A car or truck rolls brand new off the showroom floor at a local San Antonio dealer. It has brand new brakes with brand new brake pads. The brake lines and the power assist are filled with fresh fluid and are completely clean inside. And the family car tires are brand new, with full tread. Naturally, braking power is at its peak performance.
 
Now, as your drive from San Antonio to Converse and back, the miles start to add up. Most San Antonio car owners tend to focus on the brake pads. In the San Antonio automotive service community, the pads, and shoes on drum brakes, are called the friction material. Thatís because they provide the friction used to stop the family car. The pads are designed to be effective throughout their useful life Ė itís not until they are worn so thin as to be out of spec that they lose stopping effectiveness.

The mechanical parts of the brakes have pistons and springs that get quite a workout while stopping the family car. Over many miles, these wear and get gummed up. They start to lose effectiveness gradually and could even fail. Thatís why a regular brake inspection is important. At Cordova Auto Centers, we can test the operation of the brakes and see if any parts need cleaning or replacing.

That leads us tobrake fluid service at Cordova Auto Centers. Some of the critical additives in the fluid that lubricate and clean the family car fluid system are depleted over time. That and moisture building up in the system deteriorate the performance of the brake fluid. Brake fluid replacement at Cordova Auto Centers includes flushing the brake system to clean out deposits, water and dirt. Then the system is filled up with fresh fluid.

The tires are what connect the family car to the road. The stopping force is ultimately dependent on the traction provided by the tires. The better they grip the road, the quicker youíll stop as you drive around San Antonio.

For questions about brakes, brake pads, aligments, water pump replacement, or tires, talk to Cordova Auto Centers  manager Rogelio cordova.
