  • Brakes & Brake Repair

    Imagine you’re running and it’s wet outside. What will happen if you try to stop suddenly? You’ll likely slip and fall because you won’t have enough traction to stay on your feet. The same is true when you’re driving on wet surfaces with old or faulty brakes. You won’t be able to get the proper traction to stop your vehicle, which could cause an accident and serious injury. It’s important to inspect, maintain and change your brakes on a regular basis. We provide repair and installation of the following brake systems and components.

    • Pads
    • Shoes
    • Rotors
    • Drums
    • Discs
    • Brake Lines
    • Brake Fluid (Flush & Fill)
    • Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Inspection
    • Parking/Emergency Brakes
    • Brake Bleeding
  • Batteries

    Have you tried to start your car, only to hear it sputter and die before it ever turns over? If so, this may be due to a dead battery, which is an annoying, but fixable, problem. At Browns’ Automotive, we provide complete battery service. From testing to replacing, you’ll be helped by a true automotive professional that will ensure the proper battery and proper installation for your vehicle. These are our battery services:

    When it comes to your vehicle, you need to be sure that your engine is getting the right mix of fuel to ensure proper function and operation. The fuel system of your vehicle delivers the fuel that you put into your tank to your engine’s combustion chamber. When delivered in the wrong proportion, your engine may not start at all. Luckily, we provide repair and maintenance of fuel systems and fuel injection systems including fuel injection cleaning, fuel filter replacement and more.

    When it comes to what’s under the hood of your vehicle, thousands of tiny little parts come together to form this machine that carries you around. However, it’s much more complicated than that, and it can even be difficult for us to figure out what’s wrong with your vehicle. That’s why we use the industry’s top technology to provide computerized engine diagnostics, which can help us pinpoint the location of your engine problems. Is that check engine light on?
