BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR


If you need brake maintenance or repair, Green Machine Automotive can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at 831-747-1216 or visit us in Seaside 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 Green Machine Automotive 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 Green Machine Automotive 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 Green Machine Automotive 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. Green Machine Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

reviewiconEngine & Transmission, near Seaside, Marina, CA

Very pleased with all the hard work from the guys at the shop. I needed major work done (engine problems) on my 2006 Dodge Charger. A family member recommended Green Machine Automotive in Seaside. Now days your vehicle is a vital part of your everyday life. Knowing that I needed major work done on mine, I was careful on what shop/ mechanic to entrust my vehicle to and know that the work needed would be done in a timely manner and efficiently. Well, I couldn't have chosen a better place. Andre took his time inspecting my vehicle and listening to all my concerns to better understand the issue. Once he pinpointed the issue, he explained everything very clear and in a way that I would understand what was going on and what the process would be to complete the repair. Any concerns I had, he was quick in giving me an answer, allowing me to feel more at ease that my vehicle was in good hands. Thru the process, Andre reached out to communicate any additional problems that he encountered or to let me know about additional parts that were needed. Very much appreciated because I was aware of everything that was being done to my vehicle. Thank you to Sabino for lending a helping hand. Ernesto, at the front, was friendly and made sure that I had been told about additional charges. He was very helpful in explaining to me the invoices and all the charges. The entire repair was completed in a timely manner. Will definitely continue on bringing my vehicle to Green Machine Automotive for any future repairs/ preventative care. Thank you for all the hard work, greatly appreciated.
