The Importance of Servicing Brake Calipers in Northeast Ohio

Weber does brake caliper services to keep them running long and strong | North Olmsted, OH

Brake calipers are a part of the brake system in your vehicle. They can be expensive to replace, but with preventative maintenance at Weber Automotive, your brake system will last much longer!

Brake calipers are a critical component of the brake system. They are what squeezes the brake pads out of the rotor and makes the vehicle slow down and stop.

And the biggest enemy of brake calipers is corrosion. Around here, because we're a salt state, the problem is amplified.

Brake Caliper Service at Weber Automotive

So, when we talk about brake servicing or caliper servicing, we are talking brakes, pads, rotors, which are standard brake maintenance services. But at Weber, we service the calipers at the same time. We spend a little bit extra time clean the rust and corrosion off. 

Lubricating Your Vehicle's Brake Calipers

Then we lubricate with the proper grease lubricants for the caliper slides allowing them to move freely. We also highly recommend replacing the fluid because brake fluid hygroscopic meaning they absorb water, which allows them to corrode on the inside as well as on the outside. 

When you regularly do these preventative maintenance services, your calipers and brakes will last a lot longer, so you don't have to replace them all the time.

There is not necessarily a specific lubricant for different car calipers, but there are different lubricants for different type applications. Some work better than others as a caliper lubricant. For example, a great caliper grease is synthetic brake grease, which is more expensive than other choices, but it is worth it in the long run. 


If you have any questions about your vehicles brakes or brake calipers, or you need to schedule a service, contact us today! It is important to keep up on preventative maintenance with your car, especially if you live in Northeast Ohio.

Fuel System Cleaning

What is fuel system cleaning and why do we need to do it? Weber Automotive has the answers.  Understanding Fuel System Cleaning  Regardless of what type of vehicle you drive, every gas or diesel manufacturer puts detergents inside your fuel system for cleaning. So, this is good because it guarantees your car is maintaining some fuel system cleaning component.  But over the last several years, a new type of fuel injection has been used to gain tremendous efficiency. This fuel injection is called direct injection. Direct injection, also called petrol direct injection for gasoline-fueled engines, creates a mixture by injecting fuel directly into the combustion chamber. In contrast, manifold fuel injection injects fuel into the intake manifold. Cleaning Your Fuel System  Keeping your fuel system clean allows your vehicle to be adequately maintained and keeps you safe on the road. You need to hook up a setup and a device that will push the cleaner right through the airstream. This allows any sludge or varnish built up in your fuel system to be washed out entirely.  If not correctly cared for, your fuel system will eventually need further repairs. For instance, you might need to take your engine apart, remove the cylinders, and clean out all the carbon built up over time. This would mean more money spent on car maintenance and that's something we all want to avoid. Discover More About Fuel System Cleaning  Our professionals at W
