What You Need to Know About Your Car's Brake Fluid

You don't need to be a certified mechanic when it comes to your car's brake fluid. But, you should know when it should be changed, and why your car needs it. Caring for your brakes will keep your car in good working order, and all your passengers safe.

Brake fluid is essential for a vehicle's braking system to function properly. The right amount of fluid in the system provides the necessary pressure that powers the braking mechanism. Be aware of the signals that tell you when it's time to have your brake system flushed, and your fluid changed. If the warning light for your braking system stays lit, if the brake feels mushy, or if the car takes longer than usual to stop, it's time for service. Also, keep tabs of how many miles you drive between changes and what your car's manufacturer recommends.
