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 Pro Lube Auto Center 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 Pro Lube Auto Center 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 Pro Lube Auto Center as soon as possible.
They really came through for me when I had a flat in town. Great staff, made dealing with it easy. Thank you!
2 days ago I was driving to work with a busted windshield wiper, it was flopping all over while I was on the highway. I needed to be at work at 8:30 but it was too dangerous to drive. While driving I called prolube the minute they opened at 8 and I was back on the road to work at 8:11. I wasn't even late to work. Very impressed!!
Went in for an inspection. In and out in less than 25 minutes, mechanics are cool, no upsells.
Been going to John and his crew for decades now. Always an honest assessment of my vehicles, a fair cost estimate and he stands behind his work.
They really care about you.
Honest service at a decent price...my dealership tried to charge me $300 for a transmission flush prolube took one look at my car told me that I couldn't flush the transmission did a complete fluid exchange for $90. That's the type of honesty I appreciate.
Great place, quick and friendly staff.
This is where I get my car taken care of. Excellent mechanics give me peace of mind as I drive.
