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.
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. Bellflower Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
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 Bellflower Automotive as soon as possible.
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 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 Bellflower Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 Bellflower Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Andrew was very professional and honest and he only did the work that needed to be done he would call me first before he would do anything on my car he saved me a considerable amount of money compared to the other place I was taking my 2 cars. So nice to find a Automotive Business That you can actually trust and not get ripped off. I really didn't think there was a place like this anywhere! A friend recommended it to me.
Best mechanic in town I've been going to him for last 7 years. He is not like other mechanics just trying to run up your bill. He will advise you what's best for you and your vehicle. Honest stand up dude and very knowledgeable, I will continue to bring him business and anyone else I know.
This shop is family run, they do great work, and most importantly, they're honest! My wife and I have brought both our cars to the shop recently and our experiences exceeded our expectations. I appreciate Andrews clear communication, giving his recommendations based off of their initial diagnostics. He also didn't pressure us at all, and explained what work was most critical, based off of our financial situation. Even better, they're located only a couple blocks away from us. We'll definitely be back, but hopefully not too soon(for our vehicles sake) lol.
These guys are great. Finally found a trusted shop! I have an older car and don't want to take it to the dealership and overpay. I was happy with their service and definitely will be returning.
Very good place!! They did a amazing job fixing my truck! And for a really good price also. Would defently recommend anyone to come check them out!...
Very satisfied with the crew... I would recommend this shop. Bring your car to them.
My car has been coming to this shop for years. Great service and friendly people. Almost always same day fixes for quick service. I recommend this place to everyone.
I've taken my last 4 cars here, foreign & domestic. My mom's 2 cars go here only. Honest, swift and no-regret repairs.
Great honest service plus they guarantee their jobs thanks to the team.
I have been going here for years. My Dad originally started going to Hector's (that's what I call the place) back in the day and my whole family goes here. This place is the family's mechanic for all our cars. I have always gotten great service, reasonable pricing, and all around knowledge mechanics there no matter what car you drive. I believe this place is fair and doesn't tell you that you will need something done on your car that you actually don't need at that time. Tell everyone about this place you will not be disappointed with the service and the quality of work.
...I will continually take all my vehicles here from now on.
Excellent customer service and quality techs. Always leave the shop knowing my car was properly serviced.
Excellent service, this team is very serious, 100% recommended.
Been using them for three years now. Professional, honest, and reliable.
They're the best they can fix any problem, guarantee.
