Brake Fluid Flush & Replacement Castle Rock
The braking system is one of the most important systems on your vehicle. At the heart of that system is the brake fluid. Brake fluid is a special hydraulic fluid that is used to multiply the force you put down onto the brake pedal, allowing you to stop thousands of pounds of moving steel. Living in Colorado and driving through steep mountain roads makes it even more essential to routine car care.
As brake fluid ages, it absorbs moisture from the air which can reduce the boiling point of the fluid. In return, this will reduce your braking power and cause excess wear and corrosion in the braking system. Over time, the brake’s system deteriorates, and small pieces of rubber, rust and debris can contaminate your brake fluid and can compromise your Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). If your ABS warning light comes on, this may be a sign to have a flush done.
A brake fluid flush completely removes all old brake fluid and replaces it with new, fresh fluid to keep you safe and extend the life of your entire braking system. You should include a brake fluid flush every 30,000 miles or every two years but consult your owner’s manual and your mechanic at Everything Trucks & Auto for a better time estimate. If you’ve noticed that your vehicle has decreased in stopping power, it’s time to bring it to one of our certified mechanics.
