Brake Fluid Exchange: What You Need To Know
Knowing when it's time to do a brake fluid exchange can be tricky, especially since some manufacturers do not offer strict guidelines on how often to have this service completed. Brake fluid can run well in a car for years with no problems, but it usually does need to go through an exchange process at some point.
Your Brakes: The Basics
The fluid in your brakes is a messenger. When you step on the brake pedal, the fluid causes the brake pad to actuate, stopping and slowing your vehicle. Over time, brake fluid levels can become low. When this happens, it's time to have your brake fluid tested and exchanged.Schedule Service Save To Phone
Why Brake Fluid Exchange Matters
When the brake fluid in your vehicle is low, it's possible that your brakes won't work as well as they should. This could mean your brakes may fail to work during an emergency stop, especially if you have an automatic brake system (ABS). This has the potential to cause accidents. If the brake fluid sits in your car for a long time when it needs to be replaced, it can cause issues with other parts of your car, which can result in costly repairs. It can be hard to know when it's time for a brake fluid exchange. It's a good idea to check the manufacturer's recommendation for your car, as well as talk to your technician during an oil change. A mechanic can quickly check your car's brake fluid while it's being serviced for another issue.
