All You Need to Know About Brake Fluid

If you keep your vehicle maintained, it will stay in optimal condition. Having your brake fluid changed on a routine basis can help your vehicle's braking system function properly. When a vehicle doesn't have brake fluid, the individual who is driving won't be able to stop the car when applying pressure to the brake pedal. Let's find out more about brake fluid below.

While brake fluid may seem like a simple fluid that can easily be changed, there are two types that are specific to the type of braking system that your vehicle has. If your vehicle has an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), it will probably need glycol-based brake fluid. If you have a vehicle that doesn't have ABS technology, a silicon-based brake fluid will probably need to be used. Many individuals have their brake fluid changed every year, but it is best if you reference your vehicle's manual or speak with one of our service technicians.
