Welcome to Cox Auto Service, a full service auto repair shop on Miramar
San Diego CA 92121. OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH "HONEST &
QUALITY AUTO REPAIR AT A PRICE THAT IS FAIR!"
We have expert Brake mechanics & Brake technicians who have many years of experience in automobile brake system diagnostics, repair and service. They can inspect your complete brake system and pin point exactly what you need to replace in order to have you on the road safe & sound.
At Cox Auto Service, brake inspection starts with getting feedback from describing what problematic symptoms you have been experiencing. With this information, one of our trained Brake expert mechanics will do a visual inspection of the braking system. Sometimes a lot can be learned by simply removing the wheel to expose the caliper. Worn brake pads are the common reason for braking problems, along with low levels of braking fluid in the reservoir. Back brakes will be changed and in some cases a readjustment is needed for better brakes and adjustment for the handbrakes as well.

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.
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. Cox Auto Service will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
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 caliber 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 Cox Auto Service as soon as possible.
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 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 Cox Auto Service about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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 Cox Auto Service where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
