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.

What are the signs I need a Wheel Alignment?

wheel alignmentWe recommend an Wheel Alignment Check with every other oil change. A lot happens over the course of 10,000 kilometers. You drive through pot holes, travel down gravely stretches of road, or worse, knock your wheels on the curb while making a turn. All these things can impact the way your tires sit, throwing off alignment in an instant.
