I was totally impressed with Trung. He showed up on time and first inspected the brakes to determine the work that needed to be performed. He recommended not to do the back but do the front. He pointed out also potential issues down the line but did not try to sell. His work was outstanding and he even tightened the parking brake without even asking. The entire user experience was off the chart. The best of it all it was done at my house and price was lower than estimated
I had originally scheduled an appointment with Trung for my brakes to be done on my corolla. When he took off my wheels to inspect them, he was honest and showed me that my brakes didn't need to be replaced. I'd highly recommend him to anyone with a Toyota. I have used him several times for transmission flushes, front brakes, oil changes and the like and he always does a good job.

Was fair and honest with the repair work and finished in just over an hour....many thanks!
Great service. Always willing to take the time to explain and show you the problem. You cannot get this kind of service at a shop and he does the work at your house! No more shuttling cars to shops and having to wait or have a friend pick you up and take you back to get your car.

The best and very reasonable $ for brake replacement. He had to come back later in day but was so thorough each time and patiently answered questions. Highly recommend Theodore!

Nick did an awesome job, took photos so I could see some wear and tear in my car, but he was incredibly honest more than anything about the severity of issues he pointed out, I appreciated that a lot!

I absolutely love the value that Your Mechanic service brought to the process of hiring a mechanic. It's a comforting feeling to have someone come to my house to do some fixes rather than drop it off at someone else's property for them to potentially hold it for ransom. I could see exactly what the mechanic was doing, He communicated with me what was going on the whole time and really wasn't afraid of having me around asking questions. I learned a lot and thought that was worth more than the actual repair job. So, not only was my mechanic on time, courteous and competent; he was thorough in his assessment and patient with me.

Adjust Drum Brakes Service

What are drum brakes all about?

In older vehicles (usually ones manufactured before 1999), the rear brakes are drum brakes. The drum is a large medal cylindrical housing with brake shoes attached to it. When you press on the brake pedal, brake fluid helps the brake shoe apply pressure to the brake drum, which slows down your vehicle. Over time, the brake drum will wear thin, as constant friction with the brake shoe wears the drum away. When this happens the drum brakes will need to be adjusted to keep them close to the shoe, so that braking is still efficient.

Keep in mind:

  • Some drum brakes systems adjust automatically.
  • When adjusting the drum brakes it’s important to check the wear and tear on both the drums and the brake shoes, to see when both will need to be replaced.

How it's done:

  • Adjust the rear drum brakes

Our recommendation:

Your entire braking system should be routinely serviced. Each component of your system, including the drum brakes, should be examined during tuneups and servicing, and you should schedule regular inspections for the braking system. The braking system is the most critical safety feature on your vehicle, so you should not postpone brake-related services.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to adjust the drum brakes?

  • Softer brake pedal

How important is this service?

Older cars rely on drum brakes for the rear wheels. Drum brakes are a large, metal cylindrical housing on each wheel that are necessary to help your vehicle slow down or stop. Attached to the drum brakes are the brake shoes. When you deploy the brake pedal, brake fluid runs to the brake shoes, and helps them apply pressure to the brake drums. The friction between the drums and the shoes slows down your vehicle. This constant friction makes the drum brakes thinner over time, as the surface layer of the drum keeps wearing off. As the drums become thinner, the space between them and the shoes grows. This distance means that the shoes do not come into as strong of contact with the drums as they normally do, and the braking system will be less efficient than normal.
