Understanding Brake Fluid and Its Purpose

Also known as hydraulic fluid, brake fluid is designed to aid in moving various components of your vehicle's braking system. Brake fluid operates under high pressure and temperatures. In the absence of brake fluid, you would be incapable of bringing your vehicle to a stop.

Brake fluid is described as a non-compressible liquid or substance that is sowed in brake lines. The fluid plays a vital role in the process of applying pressure to the wheels to slow the movement of a vehicle.

Brake fluid doesn't last forever. For example, it can absorb moisture from the air which causes it to begin to degrade. Thus, you need to make sure that your brake fluid is changed out as recommended by your owner's manual.
