Call us at 941-627-3111 or visit us in Port Charlotte and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!
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 A & E Auto Repair 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 A & E Auto Repair about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
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.
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 A & E Auto Repair as soon as possible.

My brakes didn't feel right one night driving home. So I planned to have towed the next day to play it safe. However, while using my deceased husband's car, I was unable to get my car towed because his car overheated! Now I have TWO unusable cars that needed towing! I had both taken to A&E Auto Repair. As a woman, I've had my share of getting taken advantage of at repair shops. Well, those days are over ladies! This is the place to go! Thank you Marco and staff. You are so honest and I like your clean lobby, waiting room and shop. May God continue to bless your business!Kathleen Kelly
I needed Brake maintenance for my Nissan Altima and A and E Auto Repair scheduled my car for service in a timely manner, got the work done promptly and did a FANTASTIC job! They also did an Oil Change and Filter change that same day and driving my car home, I felt as if I was driving a new car. Everyone at A and E Auto is kind, knowledgeable, helpful and welcoming. Their Service prices are also GREAT! They've earned themselves a return and loyal customer of me!!Diane Tortora
