Types of Brake Systems:
Most vehicles today use an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), yet many vehicles still on the road use standard brake systems. The main components of a brake system include the rotors, the calipers and the brake pads, or brake shoes on drum brakes. Usually it is the pads or shoes that go unchecked and wear out that causes more serious damage.
What to Consider when Choosing Brake Repair in Fort Pierce, FL:
Since brakes are one of the more important parts of your vehicle, selecting a shop that doesn’t cut corners when fixing them is important. We have years of brake system experience and take care to ensure your brakes function as they should.
Types of Brake Pads and Brake Shoes:
Typically, there are two types of brake pads on most vehicles today. The most common brake pads installed on passenger vehicles are:
- Semi-metallic brake pads. Most common. Long-term durability. The downside is that are sometimes noisy, they produce brake dust and they tend to wear down rotors faster than ceramics.
- Ceramic brake pads. Less noisy and they wear down more slowly. Create less dust. Only downside is that they cost a little more than traditional brake pads.

Car AC Repair in Fort Pierce, FL
Is your car ready for the summer heat?
When the heat of summer is in full swing, the temperature inside a hot car can quickly reach 150 degrees or more. The last thing you need is your cars A/C system to not be performing at full capacity. If your auto AC system blows only slightly cool air, or even worse, doesn’t blow any cold air at all, it can make daily commutes and shopping trips miserable. Layna’s Used Tires and Repair in Fort Pierce, FL is your local AC repair expert and we can help you keep cool when the weather gets hot!
How does my vehicle AC system work?
Interestingly, the air conditioning system in your vehicle does not really “create” cold air. What the AC system in your car does is remove heat and moisture from the air already in your car. When this process works as designed it leaves behind refreshing cool air.
Does my Vehicle’s AC Need Maintenance?
The AC systems in today’s modern vehicles are typically “closed systems”. This means that if there are no discernible AC problems there is no need to “top off” refrigerant. A car A/C system that is operating properly does not consume refrigerant nor does refrigerant normally escape.
On the other hand, it may be wise to have your air conditioning system flushed from time-to-time to maintain its cooling ability and to stay ahead of costly repairs.It has been observed that less than 1/10 of a teaspoon of debris or dirtcan completely restrict the flow of refrigerant and oil in a typical auto AC system.If you suspect your AC is not performing as well as it once did bring it to Layna’s Used Tires and Repair and have one of our expert AC repair specialists inspect your vehicle.
