BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR


At Tupperway Auto Care & Tires, we want our Summerville customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 843-875-0800, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Tupperway Auto Care & Tires offers.

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 Tupperway Auto Care & Tires 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 Tupperway Auto Care & Tires about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
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.

Caliper Replacement
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 Tupperway Auto Care & Tires as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
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. Tupperway Auto Care & Tires will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

reviewiconEngine Maintenance, near Summerville, SC

These were the kindest gentlemen, and their service was amazing. I needed a few services and arrived without an appointment, they accepted me right away. The intake process was simple, and as I am not very knowledgeable of vehicle maintenance, I am generally uncomfortable seeking services. I have been to auto shops and dealer services around the tri-county area, and this was by far my best experience. The price was excellent and they rotated my tires for free. The waiting area was comfortable and private, and they even treated me to lunch while I was there. I felt safe, respected, and well cared for. I will only be going to them now.
