Honda Brake Fluid Change in Albany, CA

Brake fluid is vital to your safety. It transfers and amplifies the power from the brake pedal to the calipers that press the brake pads against the rotors, thus causing your Honda to slow down and to stop. Brake fluid is highly hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs water from the environment. As a result, over time water content of the brake fluid will go up until it starts to impact braking performance, and in severe cases can cause brake failure. That’s why we highly recommend regular brake fluid change aka brake fluid flush. Fortunately, unlike oil change, you only need to replace brake fluid every 2 years or so. If you are not sure if your Honda needs brake fluid change, bring it to our Albany auto care shop, and our highly skilled, nationally ASE certified technicians will inspect the fluid, and measure its water content. If it turns out that your Honda does needs brake fluid flush, our technicians can complete testing and brake fluid exchange the same day – you can drop ... read more

Honda Timing Belt Replacement in Albany, CA

Even though most late model vehicles come with timing chains now, there are still millions of Honda vehicles that are equipped with a timing belt. Typically, your Honda will need to have its timing belt replaced every 90,000 to 105,000 miles – the exact interval can be found in your Owner’s Manual. Timing belt failure can have very expensive consequences, so we highly recommend following Honda’s replacement schedule.   When we replace the timing belt, we also look at pulleys and tensioners and replace them as well. It’s is also a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time, since majority of the water pump replacement cost is in the labor – which has already been performed in order to replace the timing belt. If you are not sure if your Honda needs timing belt replacement, call us and we will inspect your vehicle and let you know if timing belt replacement is necessary, based on the condition of the belt itself and other components.
