Why Brake Fluid is So Important

Regular vehicle maintenance ensures that your vehicle will perform at its best and will be out on the road much longer. Part of that maintenance is keeping up with the brake fluid, so today we're going to be discussing what brake fluid does and why proper maintenance is critical.

Brake fluid is also called hydraulic fluid and it moves a variety of components throughout your vehicle's braking system. Without it, your vehicle can't stop when you push the brakes because no pressure is going to the rotors at each corner of the vehicle, thus nothing is applying pressure to the wheels to make the vehicle stop. Since brake fluid can absorb moisture from the air and degrade, it's important to flush and change it according to the schedule in your owner's manual.
