Ford Brake Fluid Exchange Service

Why Brake Fluid Exchanges Are Important

Brake fluid is an important part of your car's continued performance and safe operation. Your brake fluid applies the pressure needed when you press down on your brake pedal to bring the car to a stop. However, as your brake fluid ages, it came breakdown becoming less effective and a brake fluid exchange replaces it with new fresh brake fluid.

Signs Of Aging Brake Fluid

As your car's brake fluid breaks down there are noticeable signs of decreased brake performance. These signs include decreased stopping responsiveness, a musty or soft feeling when you press down on the brake pedal, and warning lights displaying in your automobile indicating issues with the braking system. Knowing when to have your brake fluid exchanged can be difficult as different manufacturers suggest different time frames some suggest 20,000 miles others 45,000 and some every three years regardless of mileage.

Why Brake Fluid Needs Changing

Brake fluid much like other automotive fluids breaks down over time, necessitating regular changing like you would with your oil. Exposure outside pollutants can cause your car's brake fluid to break down and even something as simple as moisture can cause it to need replacing. In addition to reduced stopping power over time, contaminated brake fluid can damage parts of your car's braking system
