 204 Verified Review(s)

At C & J Auto & Truck Service Center, we want our Richmond 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 804-275-2560, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services C & J Auto & Truck Service 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 C & J Auto & Truck Service 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 C & J Auto & Truck Service Center 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 C & J Auto & Truck Service Center 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. C & J Auto & Truck Service Center will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

We had one of our work trucks have serious brake issues while our guys were working in the area. Going off Google reviews I choose this repair shop. Not being there in person made this a bit challenging but through phone conversations with these guys, they repaired the truck working it into their busy day. Highly recommend!!

The technician Mr. Atkinson did an amazing job. He was polite, timely, precise, and kept my car clean from oil & grease while he was inspecting it. I have had a previous shop get grease and oil all over my seat and my floorboard, so this was important to me. I absolutely will be going back again for my car needs.
