The Vital Role of Brake Fluid in the Operation of Your Vehicle

The safe operation of your vehicle depends on the proper level of viable brake fluid in the system. In the United States, the most commonly used types of brake fluid are glycol-based and silicon-based.

Brake fluid doesn't last forever. An owner's manual will include a recommendation for the timing of a brake fluid drain and change. Professional mechanics generally agree that brake fluid needs to be changed at least once every one to two years. The failure to properly change brake fluid can result in the faulty operation of a braking system, creating a real motoring danger.
