Brake Repair Service in Plainfield, Illinois

Mechanic repairing brakes of a truck at TVA Repair

The braking system of your heavy-duty diesel truck is assembled from a very intricate network of components, which require regular service by certified and experienced mechanics. If individual elements of your brake system wear or erode, it could result in a total failure of the entire brake system. If you need brake service, it is vital that you come and see us immediately. This way we can identify and address any brake system problems early on.

The last thing you want is for your brakes to stop working unexpectedly. The moment you lose control over your vehicle is the moment you put yourself and others on the road around you, in serious danger. Not being able to slow down, maneuver turns or make stops is a strong indication that something is wrong with your brake system. Nothing is worth taking chances with your safety by ignoring braking issues. Visit us at TVA Repair in Plainfield, IL, and we will thoroughly check out the status of your brake system.

Symptoms of Bad Air Brakes

Air compressor not charging

Heavy-duty air brakes rely on powerful compressors to routinely supply the system with pressurized air. If your air compressor is taking a long time to charge, (fill with air) it’s likely that there is a leak somewhere in the system. Leaks in your hose or valve infrastructure lower the overall pressure in the brake system, which means your compressor is filling at a much slower rate. This typically can occur due to age, use, and road debris. Sometimes as the system gets older, airlines may rip when under high pressure.

Noisy Brakes

Listening to your brakes is an excellent way to diagnose a disc or drum issue. When you hit the brakes, do you hear a metal-on-metal sound? Brake pads will wear out over time if they don’t get routinely changed, which eventually leads to two metal components scraping against each other.

What’s involved in brake service?

Corrosion and rust can cause structural damage to your braking system, which can lead to costly repairs. In addition, the weight of a semi-truck places a lot of strain on brake components and can cause them to deteriorate over time. At TVA Repair, we will inspect your vehicle with every service so we can make you aware of needed repairs and brake maintenance. 

The components of the brake system do not have an unlimited lifespan, which makes it extra important to get your brakes checked out for routine maintenance. For your safety, and for the safety of everyone around you on the road, make sure to get your brakes serviced and maintained regularly. Schedule a regular brake inspection with TVA Repair to guarantee that your brakes are working to the best of their ability. 

We provide excellent service for all types of braking systems. It is our goal to provide you with a budget-friendly service that will leave your brakes in the best condition possible.

I have been a CDL-A driver with full endorsements for over 2 years. I found myself forced to job hop from a few companies based on unsafe equipment, promises unmet, and some accepted company cultures of driver complacency, poor hygiene and negative unhappy work force. I have found the opposite of those unfavorable conditions. This is the job I envisioned when I decided to get my CDL License and fulfill a life long desire to drive for a living. The staff are so polite and highly intelligent. They don't act like they care but it is clear they care very much about operations, driver relationships and hometime. I am very polite, professional and positive in my personality. That is my nature. I have found a company I am proud to be a part of. I never wonder what other drivers are being paid any longer. The pay, like the company structure itself is excellent.
