What Does Brake Fluid do?

Your vehicle's braking system works with the help of brake fluid. Brake fluid is a vital fluid that should be changed routinely to ensure your brakes stay in optimal condition. It is important to have your brake fluid changed because if your vehicle doesn't have enough brake fluid, it won't be able to come to a stop when you apply the brakes. To learn more about brake fluid, read further.

Although there are a wide range of brake fluids on the market, the two main types are silicone-based or glycol-based. If your automobile has an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), it will most likely need a glycol-based brake fluid. Vehicles that don't have ABS technology will need a silicone-based brake fluid. If you need to find out how often your brake fluid needs to be changed, you can look through your owner's manual or talk with one of our service technicians.
