Are your "brakes squeaking when you stop" or "grinding when you apply the brakes" these are signs something is wrong with your Brakes. "Squeaking brakes" or "squealing brakes" can often be a sign that your Brake Pads are worn out and you are due for Brake Service. There is actually an indicator built into most Brake Pads. Some Brake Pads do not have this feature and no Brake Shoes have them, which makes it important to have them checked periodically for wear. If caught soon enough and serviced before the pads wear all the way out the Rotors can usually be Resurfaced, saving you money. Some modern ceramic pads are prone to squeaking or squealing so you may not even be due for a Brake Job. There are however some remedies for this annoying condition. A third and sometimes problematic cause is improper installation. Ask us how we can solve any of these issues for you.
If your "brakes are grinding" this is usually a much more serious problem. Often this indicated that a Brake Pad is completely worn out. When this occurs the Rotor is often damaged and will require replacement. If not serviced soon damage to other components such as a Brake Caliper or a Wheel Cylinder can occur. This can add to the cost of a Brake Job significantly.
BRAKE INSPECTIONS are FREE here at A&D if you have the work done while your vehicle is in the shop. and Right now we are Offering up to a $50 REBATE for Brake Jobs!! Call today to schedule this or any other service 517-339-6007

This customer took their Camaro to a dealer (unnamed here) where they were told it would need a new engine. Over $5,000. Unhappy with the diagnosis, luckily, they brought it to us for a second opinion.
Here we found the reason for the seized engine was actually a hydrolocked cylinder. Fuel was leaking from two of the injectors and filling the cylinder.
This same dealer had also been telling them for years that they needed head gaskets, as you can see with a little time we were able to find that it was only the intake gasket, saving them thousands in repair.
Need a second opinion? We will gladly put the time into finding out the real issue with your vehicle. We pride ourselves in giving you a proper diagnosis and advise you can trust. Yeah we could have replaced the whole engine, unfortunately that wouldn't have even solved the injector issue and they would have been right back in the shop $4000 poorer with the same problem. Make sure your mechanic is reliable and don't assume just because you have it at the dealer that they have reputable mechanics.

This weekend I heard squeeking from my belt every time I applied the gas. Because I was out of town I just figured I would have a project when I got home. My car decided otherwise 20 miles left in my return trip the tell tale sign of a broken belt appeared on my dash, the battery light. Well I turned my lights and radio off and crossed my fingers, unfortunately not to far down the road my temperature gauge hit the red. I pulled over and popped the hood. To find the water fan on the water pump pulley cocked to the side. :(
Well late to work and a $180 tow later a lesson was learned. Don't ignore those noises! They are signs that your vehicle needs attention. #beltnoise #beltsqueek #waterpumpwoes

Are your brakes squeaking, grinding, or making scraping noises? Brakes can make many different noises for many different reasons. Don't ignore them some of them may be a sign that your brakes are worn out. But on the other hand don't just assume you need brakes and schedule that with a less scrupulous repair shop that might just replace unnecessary parts.
Some brake noises are caused by dust of even just the pad material. Some grinding or scraping noise may just be rusted rotors. Not all noises even require parts to be replaced.
Bring your vehicle to the trusted experts at A&D Repair, where we can perform a thorough inspection of your braking system. With an inspection we can find the parts and service that are really needed for your vehicle.
