Jamahl is incredibly professional and goes above and beyond to make sure my vehicle is in great shape and that I'm satisfied with the work before he leaves. Plus, if the car needed an additional small/quick repair while here, he even offered to fix it up quickly at no extra cost to make sure the car was ready to go. I was skeptical about having a mechanic work on my car at my home, but now I tell all my friends about the great service I've had with Jamahl and YourMechanic!
We've used Jamahl a few times on odd jobs on our cars. I honestly wouldn't feel comfortable having anyone else but him do the job. He's an expert, works incredibly hard, very honest, and goes above and beyond for you. Highly recommend.

Once again Lucas came to finish working on my truck. And once again, he did a fantastic job. The truck, which didn't even run when he made his first visit, is now able to be driven to my best friend's house in the High Desert. It runs and sounds great. Lucas is a gem!

Jesus

I'm highly impressed with the quality of work and the time that Jesus spent explaining the repairs to me, as well as a couple issues which were found on inspection. Jesus is honest and trustworthy, I showed him a written report of issues from a local shop and he went through each item and showed me each listed thing... The shop recommended over $1042 worth of work fir my car, most of it not really needed, and Jesus was very honest about what did and didn't need repairing. I feel like I dodged a bullet working with your mechanic over local shops. I will definitely be booking with Jesus again. I feel like I've finally found a mechanic I can trust!

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.
