Importance of Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is essential for the brakes on your vehicle to work properly. Without brake fluid, your car or truck would be unable to stop when you push the brake pedal inside your vehicle.

Brake fluid eventually absorbs moisture from the air, causing the fluid to degrade and not work properly. It is extremely important to drain the fluid regularly and replace it with new fluid to ultimately ensure brake fluid function. It is suggested that you change the fluid for brakes every one to two years. Brake fluid is essential to safety, so it is best to check your owner's manual to observe the recommended brake fluid changing schedule.

It is possible to change the brake fluid yourself. However, you should have some basic experience working on vehicles and should also read a tutorial from a manual specific to your vehicle. If you are still uncertain about how often you should change out fluids, you should consult a car mechanic.
