A vehicle's brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that Dave's Pro Auto Service customers stay safe. Whether your brake pads are signaling they need replacement, your brake light is on, or you're not comfortable with how quickly your vehicle is slowing down, call us at 570-320-0030 or visit us in Williamsport and we'll give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system's safety and reliability.
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 Dave's Pro Auto Service 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 Dave's Pro Auto Service 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 Dave's Pro Auto Service 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. Dave's Pro Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

I took my 2010 Honda Accord in on 6/28/21 for some services, one of which was R&R left rear strut. In working on that, the technician, Jeff, discovered my back seat release to fold them down was broken. By the close of the day they’d figured out a way to get it to work; they had to replace a bushing to repair it. So, the next day 6/29 I received a text from Stephannie around noon-ish, who, as I’ve said in previous reviews is absolutely the best. She is in constant communication with the customers, and one never has to wonder what’s going on with their vehicle. So, I get the text indicating my car is finished and ready for pick-up. And, they came under the original estimate by nearly $200 dollars, and did not charge me for fixing the backseat release. I was elated, needless to say. Moreover, I can’t remember the last time I received this level of care, kindness and professionalism. I am completely loyal to Dave’s Pro Auto, I will not take my car anywhere else. FYI, they do extended warranty work, too. And, have multiple coupons available on their website for services. Also, as I stated in a previous review, they service the expensive import models, too. One can’t go wrong with giving this gem of a business, and their top notch staff a look-see. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you all at Dave’s Pro Auto for truly making my day; several times over. I am extremely grateful.
