What Is The Purpose Of Brake Fluid?


Acura of Honolulu knows how important it is for your vehicle to have a good set of brakes. Brake fluid is an essential part of your vehicle's braking system. You need to have the brake fluid level checked each time you have your vehicle into the shop for its regularly scheduled maintenance.

Brake fluid is a type of hydraulic fluid. Brake fluid runs through the brake lines that go to all four wheels of your vehicle. When you press down on the brake pedal, the brake fluid allows force to be applied to the brakes to allow your vehicle to slow down and stop.

Brake fluid can break down over a period of time. For this reason, you need to change the brake fluid for best performance. You should follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommendation for the service interval of brake fluid service. Normally, the brake fluid should be changed every four years.
