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 Darrell's Auto Electric & Complete Auto Repair 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 Darrell's Auto Electric & Complete Auto Repair 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 Darrell's Auto Electric & Complete Auto Repair 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. Darrell's Auto Electric & Complete Auto Repair will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The ONLY place I will have any of my vehicles worked on! Expertise, Reliabilty, Great Communication, Time Sensitive, Friendly, Honest, Family Owned and Operated, are just a few reasons Darrell's is my CHOICE! They were definitely the best part of a bad situation when it came to repairs on my car!
Wonderful honest people that do an excellent job! Darrell's is the only place I would allow to work on our vehicles!
Only people that work on my vehicles. Hands down the best!
Wonderful service and wonderful people. THE place I trust to work on my cars.
Been using Darrell's FOR YEARS. They've got a VERY knowledgeable crew and are VERY nice!
We've been taking our vehicles to Darrell's for over 11years. They've always done a great job! They explain their work, costs are fair and the turnaround time is pretty quick. My only wish is that they were open on Saturdays. Their hours are Mon - Fri 7am to 5pm. I definitely recommend Darrell's!
I have used Darrell's on multiple occasions to fix our vehicles. They have been upfront, honest and way less expensive than other repair shops. I once had my car towed to the dealership by mistake. Their quote was $1600 to replace one part and another $2200 for another fix. I called Darrell's asking for an estimate. They gave me a ballpark over the phone, $1000 and $1400 respectively. They towed my car to their shop, inspected the work, and lowered their initial quote by nearly $200!!!! They have always been willing to discuss options, new vs rebuilt, and the pros and cons. I felt I was a part of the decision which is important when making investments in cars that you may not be keeping for much longer.
Wonderful service. I consistently get my oil changed here, and anything else my outback needs. I don't trust anyone else with my car. Love supporting this local mechanic vs. large corporation chains that will lie, and do anything to get an extra dollar in their pockets. My husband grew up with this family, and they are absolutely amazing people.
Knowledgeable experts, kind, competent, fair, and honest. I don't think about going anywhere else. They take care of my 17 year old Navigator that has 230, 000 miles on it.
Nice, honest to women. Will call my husband if I need them to.
Very skilled knowledgeable mechanics.
So glad a friend of mine recommended Darrell's Auto Electric. I love supporting a local family owed business and every time you go you see the same faces. Very friendly people!
I've used them in the past ALONG with my bro and they do great work! No complaints from this family!
Glad i finally found a honest mechanic! I've taken my car to a lot of places and wasted a lot of money and finally my car is fixed! Definitely recommend!!
