Braking properly allows us to not have accidents and makes sure that everyone is safe on the road. Making sure your brake lines are clean and flushed allows for the minimum distance to break to be lower!
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center. Did you know your braking system is not indestructible? Did you know that your brake fluid is hygroscopic? Now, I didn’t know what hygroscopic meant, but it means that it draws moisture out of the air. Now even though your brake system’s a closed system, moisture can get in and it can cause rust, it can also lower the boiling point of the brake fluid. This will, in turn, decrease the effectiveness or the stopping ability of the brakes. Your brake parts, your master cylinder, your wheel cylinder, and your calibers are made of rubber. And over time, rubber deteriorates and pieces of the rubber can break off and get into the brake fluid.
This will contaminate the fluid. That’s why it’s very important to have the brake fluid flush. It will take out all the old fluid and put in fresh, clean, new fluid. Check your owner’s manual or call your service advisor to determine when your vehicle should have a brake fluid flush. Remember, the stopping ability of your brakes is vital.
