Brake Fluid Flush
Brake fluid transfers the energy from your brake pedal to the brake calipers, which squeezes the brake pads together against the brake rotor. This creates friction and heat which stops the vehicle. During this process, your brake fluid is subjected to very high temperatures (over 300 degrees). For this reason, brake fluid must endure very high temperatures and not boil off and evaporate.
Over time, brake fluid will be come dirty and contaminated. This dirt can damage your brake rotors and cause them to decrease performance. Dark brake fluid indicates a high water content.
On average, if you drive between 10,000 -15,000 kms per year, you will hit the brakes over 75,000 times a year. Because adequate braking is vital to safe driving, it is important to check your brake fluid levels regularly.
Regularly changing your brake fluid will prevent expensive brake components from early failure. Ideally, you should change your brake fluid every two years but this will vary depending on your vehicle.
