Air brakes (or compressed air brake systems) stop heavy-duty trucks quickly. In this type of brakes, compressed air is used to apply pressure to the brake pad thus stopping a truck. These brakes are a powerful and effective alternative to hydraulic brakes - thus their common use in trucks, buses, and trains. Although powerful and effective, airbrakes need consistent, thorough maintenance. For all your airbrake needs, contact 919-335-3726 or visit Hwy 42 Auto Service today. At Hwy 42 Auto Service, we have qualified and experienced mechanics who will work on your truck's air brakes.
Brake Maintenance & Repair
Truck brakes are much more powerful than car brakes. Faulty truck brakes put the truck driver, the load, and other road users at risk. If you are not confident in your truck's ability to stop firm and straight when you hit the brakes, then it is time to have them checked and replaced if necessary. At Hwy 42 Auto Service, we will diagnose your truck and fleet's brake problems and offer high quality brake work. Visit our auto shop or call us today 919-335-3726.
A hydraulic brake is a type of braking system that uses brake fluid to transfer pressure to the brake pads. Although most heavy trucks use air brakes, some trucks have hydraulic brakes. A hydraulic brake consists of the following: a brake pedal, a push rod, a cylinder chamber, and brake pads. With time, the hydraulic brakes components wear out and thus need replacement. For all your hydraulic brake system needs, visit Hwy 42 Auto Service or call us at 919-335-3726. We boast the most experienced hydraulic brake experts in the region.
This is the best mechanic I have ever met. We all know how hard it is to find a reliable, trustworthy mechanic. Your long search is over! I have been seeing this man for years now, and every time, the diagnostic and following work has been phenomenal, more than fairly priced, and done so in a timely manner. This caring individual, and therefore his business, will explain to you essentially how parts operate and how it's apparent the [normally functioning] parts aren't doing what they're supposed to do. Their location is perfect for those who aren't close to the city, but if you're in the city, the minuscule trip is well worth the worry-free care done to your vehicle. He's fixed numerous things such as the distributor, fuel pump, O2 sensors, engine and transmission work...the list goes on.
