What Is Brake Fluid? The Questions You Always Wanted to Know

Your vehicle requires brake fluid (aka hydraulic fluid) if it is to function properly. This fluid will work under a lot of pressure and a lot of heat, and it allows your vehicle to stop when the brakes are applied to it. Brake fluid lies between the brakes and permits them to move the way that they need to when pressure is applied to the brake pad.

How often should you change out this brake fluid you may ask yourself? The answer is that most mechanics will give is that they recommend changing it out every one to two years. You may decide that you want to do so more often if something is wrong with the brake fluid that you have applied to your system or if something is not functioning properly. That is perfectly acceptable as long as you feel the need to get it done. Make it happen as often as you feel is necessary.
