At Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists, we want our Riverside customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 951-367-7400, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists offers.

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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists 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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
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.

Caliper Replacement
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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

what our customers say

We've been going to Pro Trans for over 20 years & always have good experiences. I want to thank Michael for his personal service all these years. They've replaced engines & transmissions in two of our vehicles. There is no job too small or too big, so far. They don't even mind working on our raised truck with a 6 inch lift! Thanks again for your the great work!

I was nervous about finding a shop to work on my truck since there are so many shady mechanics out there, but Protrans ended up doing an amazing job. They were great about communicating with me throughout the whole process as well. I believe I paid a fair price for the repair and they didn't try to sell me a bunch of service that I don't need. I will certainly be using them in the future if I need to.
