Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is as vital to an efficient braking system as any of the mechanical parts. It is usually silicone or mineral oil based and works thanks to its high boiling point and the fact that it also helps to prevent corrosion.

Speaking generally, the brake fluid in your car has to be replaced after two years. Once this length of time has passed, the fluid will have drawn moisture from the air, which both corrodes the brakes and renders the system spongy and much less effective. If there’s a leak in the system, the level will also drop, placing more pressure on the pads, calipers and cylinders. Monitoring your brake fluid levels and replacing where needed is vital for the smooth running and safety of your car.
