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.

Handling car repairs is not my forte at all, but sadly, we all ourselves needing to eventually. As a woman, I feel that it is even more difficult--being told countless times how my gender made me a target for mechanics to hustle an extra buck by giving estimates that were much more costly than actually needed, or even worse--not actually doing the work at all and just claiming to. In addition to this concern, is the fact that I don't even know how to articulate what the problem with my car is--and I embarrass myself with my lack of verbage when trying to describe what problems lead me there. Everything automotive is a God send in regards to this. I took my car in today, imagining a bill that would be at least 1200 dollars. My steering wasn't working right. It was making noise. And I had to guess how to explain all this! But they treated me gently, listened to my points and asked easy questions to get an idea as to where to start looking for the problems. It was painless and flawless and that exorbitant bill I imagined? I think it was less than 14 dollars for parts and a pittance for labor--so I asked them to do an oil change too. On top of it all, everyone I spoke to seemed so welcoming. I am really thankful to find a place that wants to do fair, honest business.
