Brake Masters take pride in being regarded as one of the most reliable and affordable brake repair services in Northern Virginia. Brakes are an essential part of your vehicle and good maintenance is key to making sure that your brakes do what they were designed to do — stopping on command!
Brake Masters is unique among brake mechanics in that we come to you! No matter where you are located in Northern Virginia, Brake Masters technicians bring the shop to your home or office for a free "on-site" brake inspection. We will examine your entire brake system—pads/shoes, hydraulic fluids, anti-lock systems, rotor/drum wear and calipers. Then, when it is all said and done, we will provide you with an expert opinion on what , if anything, is needs attention.
Brake Masters knows that your brake fluid is no different from any other fluid in your vehicle. Over time it will become contaminated and need flushing. Many are unaware that brake fluid is "hygroscopic" - a fluid that actually draws-in moisture from the air like a sponge. But not everyone knows that moisture is the #1 enemy of your brake system! This moisture can rust the internal hydraulics and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) components of your brake system, leading to very costly repairs down the road.
But how do you know if your brake fluid is contaminated or needs flushing? Luckily, the technicians at Brake Masters are experts at determining if a flush is needed. And if it does, we can exchange your fluid on-the-spot!
There are many vantages for using mobile mechanic vs. a conventional auto repair shop.
The conventional factor of a mobile mechanic showing up at your home or business wins big time!
Especially when compared to waiting around all day for your vehicle just to come inline to be look at for service.
Being able to do whatever you like at home or office while the dedicated mechanic performs the service task at hand, rather than having to wait at an auto repair service department is a great advantage & gain for you!
With a mobile mechanic you are able to speak directly to the mechanic, about how to carry out any repair problems without delay; likewise, being able to meet at your place of business or at home.

Built with durability, reliability, and optimization in mind, diesel engine systems are designed to use their own compression to ignite fuel. In gasoline engines, the fuel is mixed with air, compressed by pistons, and ignited by a spark plug. The rate of compression in a diesel engine is more than three times that of a regular gasoline engine system. In a diesel engine system, the air is compressed at a high compression ratio, which introduces a great amount of heat. Following this compression, fuel is directly injected into the cylinder, where the fuel vapor is ignited. Diesel engines are built without spark plugs. Instead, diesel systems use glow plugs to start and run more efficiently in colder temperatures. Glow plugs have two heating elements that allow them to get very hot very quickly for fast starts. Turbochargers increase the compression ignition by quickly compressing the air flowing into the engine, allowing for more air to flow into the chamber. More air in the combustion chamber means more fuel can be added to the combustion process. Turbochargers provide diesel engine systems with improved efficiency, and ultimately, more miles per gallon of diesel fuel.

Every vehicle built since 1996 has been equipped with an On-Board Diagnostics System that monitors engine performance. Discrepancies in performance levels are reported through your vehicle’s computer system. Once the “check engine” or “service engine” light is displayed, your next step should be to seek out an engine diagnostic service or an engine tune-up. Engine diagnostics allow our staff to gather helpful information about the operating condition of your engine. The insights obtained during an engine diagnostic will determine the extent of suggested engine repairs. The most common diagnostic trouble codes are generated in response to malfunctions in the powertrain. Ultimately, regular engine tune-ups are necessary to optimize engine performance. A tune-up is also one of the most effective ways to prevent unexpected engine trouble. During an engine tune-up, our staff may replace the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, and distributor cap and rotor in your vehicle. Our experts will also check emission levels, fuel lines, and belts and hoses. Engine diagnostics and regular engine tune-ups can help extend the life of your vehicle and improve the health of your engine.
While regular engine maintenance will help ensure that your engine always performs at peak conditions, there are also signs you can look for that indicate an engine repair service is needed. The “check engine” or “service engine” light is a sure sign that your engine should be looked at by an expert sooner than later. Most of the time, your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics System will detect an engine issue and store the corresponding repair code, which can be accessed by a member of our service staff. Slow-cranking, rough idling, stalling, knocking, or pinging while accelerating are all signs that you should seek engine repairs or engine diagnostics to determine the full extent of your engine trouble. A decrease in gas mileage and detectable loss of power during acceleration are also signs of an impending engine tune-up or engine repair service. Engine warning lights help alert drivers to minor issues before they become major repairs. Be sure to follow up with our staff once your vehicle's On-Board Diagnostics System detects a problem with your engine.
Total Roadside Services proudly serves the Engine Diagnostics and Performance needs of customers in Okeechobee, FL, Yeehaw Junction, FL, Glades County, FL, and surrounding areas.
The OBD System, or On-Board Diagnostics System, was originally installed to monitor vehicle emissions, but it also detects problems within the engine. Both OBD I and OBD II systems exist, with OBD II systems becoming the standard in vehicles manufactured after 1996. The OBD is connected to the engine control unit (ECU), which helps your engine run efficiently while keeping emissions low. The OBD can identify and warn the driver of engine malfunction by sending error notifications to the ECU system. The ECU is in charge of several engine processes, including the mixture of air and fuel, emissions, and engine timing. The ECU uses sensors to monitor them or make adjustments. If the ECU detects malfunctions, it triggers the “check engine” light on the dashboard. The OBD system then records the code pertaining to the problem. The code can be accessed by a trained technician through engine diagnostic equipment in order to properly diagnose the issue.
Engine diagnostics serve to keep your engine running efficiently. The OBD system is capable of detecting malfunctions before they lower engine performance or cause severe damage. Because of the mandatory OBD system, your automobile is capable of monitoring and diagnosing its own performance. You should have engine diagnostics performed when the “check engine” light comes on. Engine diagnostics will help detect problems early so that minor problems never become major problems. Engine diagnostics also help keep emissions low, and if your engine is malfunctioning, your vehicle might not pass an emissions test. When your “check engine” light turns on, it is time for you to contact us for an engine diagnostics service. Our experienced staff will work hard to get your engine working again properly in no time.
