Brakes are a critical component of your vehicle, which is why it is so necessary to ensure they are functioning properly. Checking your brake fluid on a regular basis is one of the ways to keep your brakes performing at their best. Not sure how to check brake fluid? No problem! The team at Longwood Mitsubishi has provided a guide to this simple service task below. Learn how to check brake fluid right from your Orlando driveway.
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that assists with brake pedal movement. It also helps prevent corrosion while lubricating your brake system. For most vehicles on the roads of Sanford, brake fluid is glycol-ether based. However, there are also silicone-based (DOT-5) and mineral oil-based (LHM) brake fluids on the market as well. If you are not sure what type of brake fluid is needed for your particular make and model, you can find this information in your owner’s manual.
Yes, there are several reasons why brake fluid needs to be changed periodically.
New brake fluid should be almost clear with a yellowish tint. The color will begin to change as you use your brake system. Dark oil-like brake fluid is a sign of contamination, and your brakes may not be performing as well as they should.
It is a good idea to check your brake fluid each time you bring your vehicle in for an oil change. Check brake fluid at least once a year. Brake fluid tends to last around four to five years. However, the type of vehicle you have, your driving habits, and driving conditions can all affect its lifespan.
