Proper brake maintenance is important for your vehicle’s performance and your safety. One key aspect of brake care is maintaining your brake fluid. Over time, it can become contaminated, affecting your brakes’ effectiveness and safety. At Superior Tire & Auto, we offer expert brake fluid change services to keep your brake system working at its best.

The Fundamental Role of Brake Fluid

Brake fluid plays a pivotal role in your car’s braking system. When you press the brake pedal, the brake fluid transfers this force to the wheel cylinders, causing your vehicle to slow down or stop. Brake fluid absorbs moisture over time, which can decrease its boiling point. A lower boiling point can lead to brake failure, especially under more strenuous driving conditions where the brake system heats up.

Signs Your Vehicle Needs a Brake Fluid Change

Several signs flag a need to visit the brake professionals. Some of these signs include but are not limited to the following:

Spongy Brake Pedal: A soft brake pedal that depresses further than usual can indicate a need for brake fluid replacement.

Dark Brake Fluid: If the brake fluid is dark or murky, it’s a sign that it may need to be changed.

Low Fluid Level: Consistently low brake fluid levels in the reservoir can suggest a leak or worn brake pads.

Brake Warning Light: A lit brake warning light on the dashboard often signals issues with the brake system, potentially the fluid.

Poor Brake Response: If the brakes respond slowly or the stopping distance increases, the brake fluid might be compromised.

Remember, addressing these signs as they appear ensures that the brake system remains effective and safe for vehicle operation. Also, make sure to inspect the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir regularly. It is considered a best practice to consult your owner’s manual for specific guidance on replacement intervals.

The Process of a Brake Fluid Change

During a brake fluid change, our brake mechanics will draw fluid from the brake master cylinder reservoir, ensuring old or moisture-laden fluid is removed. Then, fresh brake fluid is added to the master cylinder reservoir, followed by bleeding the brakes to eliminate air from the brake lines. This process guarantees your brake system is free from air and old fluid. This helps maintain a high boiling point and ensures optimal braking performance for your vehicle.
