He was timely, honest, professional, and trustworthy. He told me what my car needed to work safely, and not what he needed to make money of me. He was honest, and that is really hard to find in this town anymore.
Even though we didn't have to do the job I had thought, he was nice, and did what he could while he was here. I will call him again when I need something else.

Richard both showed up and finished ahead of schedule. He walked me through everything he was going to do, and even saved me money by pointing out one of the parts I thought was broken actually didn't need fixing. Car runs great now.

Always a top notch job, he never fixes what doesn't need fixing and is always up front as to what he's going to do. There's never any question as to what it will take to get your car back on the road, driving like it's brand new.

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.

Gustavo was on time and very knowledgeable so I was confident he could find what was wrong with my brakes. Most importantly, he is a very honest mechanic which is very hard to find. I did not need some repairs that the dealer I normally go to told me I needed. Gustavo showed me what I needed and explained everything. Thank you again for the honest and quick repair.

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.
