Expert Brake Repair, Jamestown NY

Brake Repair You Can Trust

Your automobile’s brakes are one of the most important parts of your car. They keep you safe, prevent accidents before they happen, and allow you to retain a high level of control when they are repaired. The problem with brake systems is that they contain numerous components that undergo wear and tear.

brake pads can fail, brake lines can leak, low brake fluid levels can lead to inefficient braking, and a plethora of other nasty things can go wrong.That’s where our local brake technicians enter the picture. At Tanners Garage, we can diagnose and repair any issues with your brakes to ensure that you and any passengers in your vehicle are safe.Let’s examine some more information about brakes to better understand why brake repair is so important.

 

We only use the Highest Quality Brands of Brake Pads

 

 

 

How Do Your Brakes Work?

There are two main types of brake systems: disk brakes, which apply friction to both the front and rear axles; and drum brakes, which have a series of tubes and hoses connected to a drum that resides on the rear axle.

 

Other braking systems include parking brakes, power brake boosters and anti-lock brakes. The purpose of each brake is clear: to stop your car. When you press down on the brake pedal, you’re applying pressure to a plunger that pushes brake fluid into the hydraulics of your brake system.

Disk brakes have an extra step. The fluid is forced into a caliper, where it then applies pressure a piston that squeezes the rotors down upon the axle. This causes your wheels to decelerate, which in turn causes your car to slow down.

 

Fixing Common and Uncommon Brake Issues

At Tanners Garage, we have seen countless brakes and braking systems. We’ve encountered everything from the common worn rotors to warped rotors that fail to apply brakes evenly. The most common we fix are brakes worn due to excessive use or accumulated heat.

These brakes become less able to brake due to the decreased friction in the system, which means that they must have more pressure applied and thus must undergo more heat. Rotors are another common issue we repair. Drivers wait too long to replace their brakes, which in turn causes the rotors to become warped or bent due to higher levels of heat or pressure.

Expert Electrical Diagnosis & Repair

Tanners Garage can assist you with any problems you may experience with your vehicle’s electrical system. Our technicians are up-to-date on all of the advances automobile manufacturers are incorporating into new vehicles and use the newest electronic diagnostic tools and equipment. Electrical systems can seem complicated, but we can diagnose and solve all of your electrical problems. Customer service is our ultimate goal and we will work to make sure your car is fully functional for all of your needs.


A quick word about your automotive electrical system:

The electrical system consists of a battery, starter, solenoid, alternator or generator, voltage regulator and fuse panel (box). The battery makes 12-volt power accessible for all of your auto’s electrical needs. The battery is recharged by the alternator or generator. An alternator is connected to the engine by a belt and generates the electricity needed to charge the battery. The voltage created from the battery then goes on to the starter and allows you to start your vehicle by turning the ignition switch. Along with these basic components, there are miles of wiring connecting these items to various parts of your vehicle. In older vehicles, the wiring harness may wear out and cause a variety of electrical problems, such as electrical shorts. Problems with your electrical system can be simple, such as when a battery has died or a fuse may be faulty, or very complex and involve multiple systems controlled by the electrical system.

A quick word about your engine:

A basic automotive engine, no matter its size or type, works by combusting–or burning–a combination of fuel (gas or diesel) and air inside its cylinders. The cylinders are long, narrow passageways in the center of the engine that house the engine pistons. The pistons are what compress the air and the fuel inside the engine. As the fuel and air are compressed inside the engine, the spark plugs, which are small ceramic diodes attached to each cylinder wall, ignite the air and the fuel inside each cylinder. The spark plugs are attached to wires that receive electrical current from the car’s electrical system. This electrical current, or spark, is what initiates combustion inside an engine. The force of the engine combustion is what gives an engine its power. The engine pistons, connected to the engine crankshaft, which is in turn connected to the driveshaft of a vehicle, are thrust downward inside the engine with violent force. This occurs each time the air and fuel mixture is ignited. As the pistons are thrust downward, the force of the engine combustion is transferred through the engine crankshaft, the driveshaft and ultimately to the wheels of the vehicle.

A quick word about the importance of scheduled maintenance for your vehicle:

Performing basic car maintenance tasks can keep your car running more efficiently, saving you money, extending the life of your car and keeping you safe.

The certified technicians at Tanners Garage will be more than happy to lookup your particular vehicle’s suggested maintenance schedule so that you can keep your car running better for a longer period of time.Maintenance is one of the most serious aspects of ownership. It determines the longevity, performance and reliability of whichever vehicle you drive. Maintenance means taking care of all the parts, even those that are under the hood. After all, those are the ones that directly concern the performance of your vehicle. In addition to having a certified repair shop assist you with scheduled maintenance, there some things you can do as an owner to keep your car in peak performance: checking the battery, keeping a check on the oils, changing the oils, checking the electrical system, are some of the absolutely unavoidable things to keep your vehicle in good shape.

Timing Belt Replacement

 

Timing belt repair and replacement work is routine at Tanners Garage. We offer timing belt services in Jamestown NY. We can inspect your timing belt to see if it is ready to be replaced, and diagnose any other potential engine problems you could be facing during our automobile inspection services. You can trust us to make accurate and fair diagnosis of any problems your car might face. If you suspect timing belt problems in your car, truck, SUV, or other vehicle, then it is time to see an auto repair professional at Tanners Garage.

There are many symptoms of timing belt problems. In fact, timing belt problems are one of the most common primary causes of automobile break downs. So, staying on top of your timing belt by inspecting it regularly can avoid costly repairs in the future. It will also save you the hassle of waiting for a tow truck alongside the roadway at an inconvenient time.

 

Typically, timing belts can last from 60,000 to 100,000 miles. This will vary from engine to engine as well as from driver to driver. You can get suggestions for frequency of timing belt repair in your car’s owner’s manual. However, an inspection from Creech Import will give you a definitive answer as to whether or not it is time to replace your timing belt.

A timing belt serves to connect the crankshaft to the camshaft(s) in internal combustion engines. This is part of the process of controlling the opening and closing of the engine’s valves. This process allows air into the engine to allow combustion to happen efficiently. A well tuned engine will work in a synchronized and smooth manner. This is why we recommend that you let a professional auto technician handle any kind of timing belt replacement project. The mechanics at Tanners Garage are skilled and experienced in timing belt problems of all kinds. At our local auto repair shop, we are ready to fix your timing belt in Jamestown NY
