Stop! It May be Time to Check Your Brake Fluid Level

Your car has many operating systems that need routine maintenance to make sure it is operating safely and smoothly. One important system is the brake system, and an important component of this system is brake fluid. Brake fluid is important for the following reasons:

  • What is Brake Fluid? - Often called hydraulic fluid, brake fluid is a combination of various glycols that can withstand extreme heat and cold and will not cause damage to rubber components.
  • What it Does - Without brake fluid, your car would not be able to stop. When you press the brake pedal, pressure on the brake fluid makes the brake pads grip the wheels, causing them to slow and stop.
  • Is it a Lubricant? - In addition to making your car stop, brake fluid also lubricates the parts of the brake system and helps to prevent corrosion.
