If it’s time to service your brake system you will notice the following symptoms and conditions:
- Soft or spongy brake pedal
- Brakes not working properly
- Manufacturers recommendation
Once it has been determined that you need to service the brake system on your vehicle, a skilled technician will perform the following procedure:
- Remove all of the existing brake fluid in the master cylinder using a specialized brake fluid service system.
This brake fluid service system, which is connected to all four wheels at the same time, will refill the master cylinder with high quality new brake fluid after the old brake fluid has been completely flushed from the entire brake system. The old contaminated brake fluid is removed at each wheel until new brake fluid has completely filled the system.
Your brake system benefits from this service because as brakes are used they generate heat and the brake fluid needs to remain liquid, without boiling, to operated properly. Over time, brake fluid can become contaminated. Contaminants, including moisture can lead to early failure of brake components. The moisture absorbed by the brake fluid causes the brakes to feel soft, spongy, or not work properly.
The brake system is the most important safety system on your car. By regularly changing the fluid in your brake system you can improve the performance of the brake system and reduce the chance of costly repairs due to brake failure from brake fluid contamination. The contamination and deterioration of the brake system can be a gradual process. While you may not notice any problems, it is a good idea to take preventative care of your brake system to help prevent future costly repairs.
