Contact us at 502-459-0355, or send us an email, and our experts will be happy to answer your questions and determine what needs to be done.

Our basic auto maintenance services include:

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at American Brake Centers Inc. to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on American Brake Centers Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit American Brake Centers Inc. today. The mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At American Brake Centers Inc., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 502-459-0355 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At American Brake Centers Inc., we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At American Brake Centers Inc., all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

Headlight and Bulb Replacement
To maintain maximum visibility (and keep you safe), you should always make sure that your vehicle's headlight bulbs are in good working condition. Although replacing faulty headlight bulbs is a simple and quick process (takes very little time), you need to rely on an experienced auto mechanic to handle your headlight and bulb replacement. This way, you will have quality bulbs installed by experts. Remember, it is a critical part of your car's maintenance and your safety. For all your headlight and bulb replacement needs, call or visit American Brake Centers Inc. today.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on American Brake Centers Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit American Brake Centers Inc. today. The mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to American Brake Centers Inc. in Louisville, KY 40218.

Wiper Blade Replacement
Visibility is very important to safe driving. Having properly functioning wipers can help keep you safer on the road. If your car's wipers are not wiping well or are leaving lines, have them replaced immediately. To have wiper blades fitted on your vehicle, call 502-459-0355 or visit American Brake Centers Inc. today. We will fit your car with high quality and effective wiper blades.


What Our Customers Are Saying

This guy took a car that was bordering street legality and not only made it work like new, but also did so at an extremely fair price. When other shops were quoting thousands of dollars, he said $600. When the repair needed a component that he hadn't foreseen to tell me about, he added it for only the cost of the part, not adding the cost of labor. This shop is worth your time, money, and trust.

The guys are never pushing and always call me before any work is done to my vehicle and let me know how much it will cost and what is being done. I highly recommend American Brake on Bashford Ave. Ct. Great bunch of guys!
