Brakes and Brake Services
When choosing Pocono Tire & Brake, you’re choosing a trusting, reliable team of experts to be there for you in your time of need. We know your brake system inside and out and can perform repairs on any make or model. We investigate and repair everything from brake pedals, hydraulic brake fluid, electronic anti-lock brake sensors and rotos. Our professional brake technicians will deliver the best service possible to ensure your safety.
A vehicle’s brakes are one of its most important safety features, and we want to make sure that you stay safe. If you notice that your brake pads are signaling, your brake light is on, or any changes to your brake pedal, please do not wait any longer to call us. We will give you a prompt diagnosis of your braking system and make any repairs if need be.
You may need brake repair services when:
- The brake dashboard light glows amber, indicating problems with the anti-lock brake system (ABS)
- The brake dashboard light is red, indicating a system imbalance
- The brake pedal is spongy or slow to respond
- You hear grinding or constant squealing during braking
Any time you notice these, or other symptoms, it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked. If our inspection reveals you need brake repair services, we will explain exactly what’s required, what’s optional, what to keep an eye on, and provide you with a written estimate before any work is done. That is part of our Pocono Tire & Brake Co. promise!
At Pocono Tire & Brake Co., our job is to help you protect your investment by making sure you maintain your vehicle to dealer specifications, at a fraction of the cost. The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems with your vehicle is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, its owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule. The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best—the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more. You can count on our certified mechanics to work on your vehicle diligently and efficiently; nothing will be missed, or “added on” to your service bill.
At Pocono Tire & Brake Co., we use a complete line of Run-Rite® Car Care Maintenance Products consisting of specialty cleaners, lubricants and equipment to keep your vehicle running at optimum levels. Routine maintenance will extend the life of your car, saving you time and money, and help you avoid needless repairs.
Oil Change Service
One of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and the oil filter regularly. Not sure if you need conventional or synthetic? Don’t worry; one of our auto Technicians will be happy to figure it out for you!
At Pocono Tire & Brake Co., with an oil change, or any other service, you’ll receive a courtesy visual inspection. We’ll look inside, outside, under the hood and underneath the car, then explain the findings and give you a written report. At Pocono Tire & Brake Co., we’ll also walk you through your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for maintaining these vital systems of your vehicle:

Steering and Suspension Services
Your vehicle’s suspension system serves two primary purposes – managing how your vehicle holds and handles the road. It controls how safely your vehicle maneuvers on the road and maximizes driver and passenger comfort while minimizing bumps, vibrations and noise. Shocks and struts are integral components of the suspension system and their wear has a very real impact on the safety of your vehicle. Worn shocks and struts can affect how your wheels touch the road, causing dangerous swaying, hydroplaning, deteriorated performance and compromised road handling and holding. Let Pocono Tire & Brake Co. help you keep control of your vehicle by ensuring the safety and security of your steering and suspension system through every twist and turn the road may bring.
Shocks and Struts Warning Signs:
- Fluid leaking out of the shock or strut body
- Shock or strut bodies are dented or damaged
- Mounts or bushings are broken or worn
- Cupped, uneven tire wear
- Vehicle sways or leans on turns
- Vehicle “nose dives” when you apply the brakes
- Excessive bouncing after hitting a road bump
- Harsh, bumpy or shaky ride
- Steering is stiff or makes noise
Inspections are mandated by the state to ensure all vehicles driven on public roads are safe to drive and in good condition. The goal of the inspection is to keep drivers safe by catching any problems before they cause an accident. A vehicle inspection requires a lengthy examination of parts to make sure that everything is in working order in many different areas on the vehicle, including under the hood, in the interior, under the vehicle, and the outside of the vehicle on its bodywork.
