BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Scholls Ferry Automotive, we want our Portland 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 503-246-9781, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Scholls Ferry Automotive 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 Scholls Ferry Automotive 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 Scholls Ferry Automotive 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 Scholls Ferry Automotive 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. Scholls Ferry Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

The quality of work at Scholls Ferry Automotive is only surpassed by the integrity of the ownership. I trust Chris more than I would more than almost I've ever met. Outstanding man, great business. I go out of my way to get service done there.

Chris was great! I took my 2007 Lexus is350 in for them to check where my oil leak is coming from, and they found it they steamed cleaned it and everything. I got it back the next day they told me how much the repairs would be. Honestly for my first time going there it was great! Gonna take it back this week or sometime next week to get my leaks fixed!

New to the area and was having trouble with my Jeep. Chris was easy to work with and found the problem and it was fixed. They're very reasonable with charges and even when there was a warranty issue with the part, they were on top of it and fixed it. Definitely a trustworthy mechanic shop!
