That we have found low brake fluid to be the cause of a large percentage of brake issues here at Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc?

Your vehicle's belts and hoses are essential to the cooling, air conditioning and charging systems, and the engine. Don’t take these routine replacement intervals for granted because they can break down and leave you stranded.
What is the purpose and importance of your belts and hoses? The timing belt keeps the crankshaft and camshaft mechanically synchronized to maintain engine timing. Whether serpentine, V-belt, or fan belt (the belts on the outside of the engine), they all transmit power from the front of the engine to accessories that need to be driven, such as the air conditioning, the charging system, and fans. Radiator and heater hoses carry coolant to and from the engine, radiator, and heater core.
Balanced wheels are essential for a multitude of reasons, particularly on commercial trucks. At Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, we have the precision equipment necessary to provide you with the best balance possible, keeping your truck smoothly and reliably on the road.
Your fleet or commercial truck works hard, every day. Most commercial vehicles are heavy, and constantly under load. As a result, your brakes will inevitably develop issues over time. At Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS, we can fix that.
