Brake Fluid Service

Car-Brakes-1-1024x724Brake fluid performs a vital function in your vehicle. Without it your brakes won’t work. Every time you press down on the brake pedal, the fluid transfers energy from the peda,l through brake lines, to the wheel cylinders or calipers against the drums or rotors to stop the vehicle.

Brake fluid has to handle thousands of pounds of pressure, operate in constantly changing temperatures from below zero to several hundred degrees, and perform perfectly every time.

Why do you need to change your brake fluid?

Brake fluid is hygroscopic – meaning it attracts and holds moisture. Excess moisture and heat can lead to fluid oxidation and deterioration. Modern brake systems equipped with Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are sensitive to the brake fluid breakdown, and it can lead to system failure. More importantly, your brake system performance may be compromised when you need it the most.

A National Health Traffic Safety Administration survey found that the brake fluid in 20% of 1,720 vehicles sampled contained 5% or more water.  So, the risk of moisture in your brake fluid is very real and worth doing something about.

Changing the brake fluid eliminates the moisture and contamination that may be present in your brake system. Manufacturers recommend the brake fluid be replaced periodically to eliminate moisture and contaminates from the system.

Why schedule an oil change regularly?

oil changeThe most basic, cost-effective way to protect your car engine is to change your oil and oil filter on a regular basis. Oil keeps the engine in motion by reducing friction, to lubricate, and decrease wear. Engine oil also creates a seal between pistons, rings and cylinder walls which helps cool engine parts. Oil changes will also reduce the shock and noise of the vehicle's moving parts.
