Theodore

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!
I would highly recommend Theodore to anyone who needs work on their automobile. Theodore is very professional and honest. I had my 98 Honda Accord brakes done five years ago and was not sure about needing it change. Theodore worked on my rear brakes and let me know that it did not need to be replaced yet. However, the brakes only needs adjustment which he showed me how to do for future. This save me money. He also looked over my car to see if anything else needs to be done. Thank You, Theodore

I had issue with this service, after the break pads were replaced they start making a horrendous sound everytime I stopped, but the warranty cover it and all point out to the actual parts not the labor. Brandon did a good job but the parts were defective apparently.
Brandon was Awesome! He was very professional and honest ( informed us we didn't really need back brakes as we thought). When he was done he did a short test drive and then took a drive with us to be sure we were satisfied. thank you for your excellent work Brandon!

Peter arrived early and quickly realized my Brakes were good and did not need replacing. He was efficient in resolving all the issues I had him booked for. He identified a new issue and gave me a good recommendation to fix it. Peter is always looking out to save me money, time and keep me and my car safe. The dealership quoted me over $600 to do just one of the jobs that Peter managed for less than $400. I would highly recommend his services. Just don't book him, when I need him. :)

Verne had problems with a prior job but was very quick to reschedule later in the day. When arrived we discussed my job (a repair shop had given me a quote around $450.00) and he assured me that I had done the right thing in working with Your Mechanic. I can now say that Verne is the second mechanic that I have dealt with in life that has shown me that there are still mechanics that are trustworthy and honest. My job was quoted around $260.00 and all I needed was a good cleaning. Verne's work was fast, saved me money on a car with over 180,00 miles on it, and he represented himself honestly. I would highly recommend Verne to anyone, I would highly recommend Your Mechanic to anyone. What a great experience!

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.
