As the rain pours down on Houston and our neighbors we continue to keep everyone in our thoughts. Torrential rains are continuing to displace people all over the area, people are losing everything they have ever known, homes, vehicles, clothing, pets, photographs, and in some cases their lives. Wards Mobile Mechanic will continue to monitor the flood and roadway conditions and provide assistance to areas we can reach as the water levels here recede. Please do not drive in high water, if you don't know, don't go. There have already been reports of a person dying in a flooded vehicle. If you find yourself stuck in high water you can call one of five numbers for the Houston command center of the US Coast Guard if you're in danger and need rescue: 281-464-4851, 281-464-4852, 281-464-4853, 281-464-4854 and 281-464-4855. Stay Safe Houston.
If you are hearing a squeak or squeal it is most likely because your brake pads and/or brake shoes are worn down, as they are designed to do. This is the best time to get your brakes checked as at this time you probably only need new brake pads or shoes. If you are hearing a loud grinding noise when you are braking you have warn your brake pads down to the metal backing of the pads or shoes and have probably started to grind into your brake rotors or drums. In most cases you will now have to replace your pads and rotors or shoes and drums. If you do not get it repaired now you will end up having to replace you calipers and/or wheel cylinders and bleed your brake system because after your metal backing wears down it will spit out the backing and start to stop your vehicle with the calipers pistons. or you will lose all of your brakes do to it pouring out all of your brake fluid from behind you calipers piston which is bad so give US a call or text and get a free quote before it's
