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.
Was fair and honest with the repair work and finished in just over an hour....many thanks!

This is the second time I've hired Mr. Rodriguez to inspect/repair my vehicle. Overall, I appreciate his honesty, punctuality, amiability, and respectfulness. Although I had originally requested over $330 worth of services, he told me that I didn't need them. He simply charged me for the following services: (1) steering wheel diagnosis, (2) drive belt adjustment, (3) drum brake adjustment, and (4) tire rotation. Notably, when I asked him to clarify the "tire rotation" service (since the tires hadn't been rotated), he explained that the site's system listed it as such on account of him having to remove the tires. However, on the YourMechanic website, it states, "Rotating worn-out tires is of no use since the purpose of tire rotation is to extend the life of tires. If this is the case, the mechanic will not rotate the tires and we will not charge you for the service." So I'm still skeptical about the charge. I also asked him whether he was able to adequately assess the condition of my vehicle by checking only the right side, and once more he addressed my concern in a timely manner by citing his last inspection one and a half years ago. I had driven this particular vehicle 5,000 miles since then, so from his point of view as an expert, it was safe to assume that the other brakes were fine. Nonetheless, based on our previous encounters, his refusal to charge me for services I didn't need, and the enthusiasm he showed in teaching me about cars, I have no reason to distrust him. I appreciate his time as well as his expertise, and I look forward to hiring him again.

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!

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.
