You need your car to go places, but you also need it to stop. You may think it’s your brake pads, rotors, and drums that do all the work but really, they are just the last link in the chain.

In short, your brake fluid is doing a lot of the work too and it doesn’t get nearly enough credit. For most vehicles and under normal usage, you should change your brake fluid once every 4 or 5 years to avoid major failure and damage of internal components and lines.

Why is changing your brake fluid important?
Over time your brake fluid can collect moisture, and this can lead to under lubrication of key parts of your braking system as well as premature rusting of various components. Your brake fluid level can also drop and if it drops too low, you could suddenly find that your brakes are ineffective. If you have a leak in a brake line, that’s an even more serious issue and you need to get that taken care of right away as your vehicle is likely not even safe to drive.
Though there are a few ways you can tell if your fluid may need to be replaced, the act of checking it can actually draw more moisture into your brake system which is why letting a professional handle it is the safe choice.
Changing your brake fluid isn’t like changing your oil either. The brakes have to be properly bled afterward to ensure that when you step on that brake pedal, you reliably come to a stop. Of the service that you can perform yourself on your car, we recommend this only for experts because you are taking your safety into your hands. This is just one of the many reasons why you should trust the team at when you need your fluid flushed.
