Why Brake Fluid is Important

If you have a vehicle, keeping it maintained will ensure that it runs smoothly. Brake fluid, which is also known as hydraulic fluid, is an important part of your vehicle's braking system because it helps all of the components function. It lies in the brake lines, and if your vehicle doesn't have brake fluid, it won't be able to stop when your foot engages the brakes. Let's find out more about brake fluid.

If your vehicle has an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), it will probably need a glycol-based brake fluid. Silicon-based brake fluid is used on vehicles that don't have ABS. While most people have their brake fluid changed once a year or every few years, you should reference your owner's manual and speak with one of our service technicians about how often it should be changed.

If you need to have your vehicle's brake fluid changed, schedule an appointment at our service center at Carbone Automotive Group in Yorkville, NY.
