Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Everything Automotive of Jacksonville, Inc. where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Everything Automotive of Jacksonville, Inc. about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Everything Automotive of Jacksonville, Inc. as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Everything Automotive of Jacksonville, Inc. will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
Once again, the team at Everything Automotive has gone above and beyond! Their customer service experience is superb! One of my brake lines exploded and had to be replaced. My car was towed to the shop and repaired. Both lines were replaced to prevent another situation. My car was inspected from end to end and returned to me the next day. What could have been a very stressful situation turned into a pleasant experience! Thank you Tony and team!Barbara Dunahugh

I have nothing but good things to say. Ben was wonderful working with over the phone. I had my car towed there after the previous mechanic (family friend) charged me over $600 to replace parts that didn't even need to be fixed!! Basically the friend mechanic didn't know how to fix it. This caused me so much stress and irritation. Not to mention I'm 7 months pregnant. So I went without a car for 3 weeks while this guy couldn't figure out my problem. I finally towed it to everything automotive because of the wonderful reviews I've seen. They were able to fix my problem in two days. I've never felt so good about taking my car anywhere. They were so confident that they could fix it. They had all the right tools and knowledge to do so and they did it! This was the best choice I've made when it comes to taking my car to a mechanic shop. I definitely will be a repeat customer and will refer anyone I know. They took such a horrible experience I had with a previous mechanic and made it SO painless for me. I couldn't have asked for better service. Thank you! Car: 2018 Ford Fusion hybrid
