BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR
At H & H Auto Repair and Detailing Center, we want our Levittown 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 215-547-3929, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services H & H Auto Repair and Detailing Center 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 H & H Auto Repair and Detailing Center 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 H & H Auto Repair and Detailing Center 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 H & H Auto Repair and Detailing Center 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. H & H Auto Repair and Detailing Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

Owner was very very helpful & accommodating. I am a young single mother who knows nothing much about cars. I was given the run around from every direction and was just desperate to get my car fixed. Unfortunately the issues were not something that could be covered by my warranty company and due to financial struggles I could not afford the cost to fix the car but the owner helped me out to be able to look at the car to be able to pay for the labor of taking it apart & even through the frustration he was still very helpful and kind to me. My car is not one that I'm interested in putting any more money into but I definitely appreciate the customer service and that speaks louder than anything else. In the future I will definitely go back when I'm financially able to afford but I'm grateful I ran across someone who was as helpful as H&H.
