At 590 Service Station, we want our Lackawaxen customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 570-685-2690, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services 590 Service Station offers.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. 590 Service Station will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact 590 Service Station as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at 590 Service Station about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit 590 Service Station where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Thanks Ray for getting my Nissan out of a precarious spot.
I followed Mike into the same hole. Same result. These guys worked us to switch one of the rims from Mikes car to mine. Very helpful, pleasant, and reasonable. Did a great job balancing the wheel. I took it on the road course at Pocono Raceway the next day without a hitch. Thanks guys!

My car needed an oil change and I could not find time to stop at a shop to get the oil done. So I called 590 Service and spoke to Ray and Dave and was able to make an appoitment. They were able to work around my schedule and got everything done in a timly manner! I would recommend this to anyone great service with a smile and very friendly. This shop honestly cares about their customers!
Ray towed our truck when the fuel pump went while driving, he was more than happy to tow our truck from Masthope to our house in Dingmans Ferry. Ray and his sons and employees do great body work and mechanical work in general.
We love them! They are first rate. We had a battery/starter problem and they came to the rescue. Not only did they pick up our car, but loaned us one so that we could make it to an important meeting while our part was in transit, and that's just one of our 590 success stories. You'll get great "Service" from 590 Service Station.
