Older Vehicles Need A Brake-job In Winter

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 11, 2018
Reliable Transmission Repair - Brake Repair in Rock Hill, SC

Corrosion in the car's undercarriage area is hard to monitor. This includes the car’s brake system which is also the car’s main safety device. Corrosion in the brake system is a serious safety issue during the winter when cars are prone to snow and road salt exposure. Moreover, as the car gets older, anti-corrosive coating that was present on many of the car’s metal parts wears out. Which is why, automotive brake system maintenance during winter is a must, particularly for aging cars.

The best brake service in Rockhill, SC performs complete diagnostics for the car’s braking system. Brake fluid levels are checked and replaced if necessary. Aging brake fluid may contain contaminants and moisture that accelerate the corrosion of the metallic brake lines and caliper pins. Corrosion in caliper pins causes brake drag which increases fuel consumption. During maintenance service, cars are lifted for chassis inspection to ensure that undercarriage components, including the braking system parts, are free from corrosion.

Furthermore, an automotive maintenance specialist will examine other car components as well during the brake check-up to ensure that all systems are in tip-top shape. For instance, checking the wheels is imperative, since good brakes are useless when wheels are in poor condition. As with the engine, transmission, and electrical systems periodic and comprehensive car maintenance and repair is necessary during the harsh winter months.

Happy Thanksgiving from Reliable Transmission Repair

It’s Thanksgiving week and a time each year when we reflect upon the blessing within our lives. Today our warmest Thanksgiving wishes go out to all of you, our clients, friends, and neighbors. Along with this note of thanks to you, this week we offer a special Thanksgiving “shout-out” to one of the more unsung Thanksgiving heroes, Sarah Hale. Historians credit Sara Hale as the originator of the Thanksgiving federal holiday.

Sara Hale undertook a 17-year letter writing campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday observed in all states. Before Hale, Thanksgiving was not a fixed holiday but rather an informal tradition. Presidents would select a day and make it known that it would be a day of thanksgiving and community. Hale lobbied five separate presidents for a set date until finally her request was granted by president Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln congratulated her tenacity and immortalized the holiday as part of American culture.

So thanks, Sara, for your 17 years of letter writing, for securing our day of Thanks on Thursday, and for your part in creating one of the most warm and celebrated day within our American culture!
