When it comes to vehicle maintenance, everybody knows how important things like oil changes and tire rotations are. However, there are some tasks that are a little harder to stay on top of because you don't need to deal with them as often. Despite that, it's still important to check things like your brake fluid every once in a while to make sure there aren't any problems in the works. A brake fluid exchange is a somewhat complicated job, so it's important to find a professional you know is qualified for it. At Dorsett Hyundai in Terre Haute, we have experience working on just about every model you can imagine so we always have what it takes to do the job right.
There are a lot of different systems in your vehicle that requires some type of fluid to work, and your brakes are no exception. This brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, essentially allows your brakes to stop your vehicle. The fluid moves around at high pressures and temperatures and allows your brakes to fully stop your vehicle on a dime.
For the most part, brake fluid lasts a long time because it's sort of separate from the rest of the engine. However, there are times when moisture from the outside air can get into the system through lines and other weak points, causing it to fail prematurely. As preventive maintenance, the best thing you can do to make sure your brake fluid is always fresh is to have it flushed and exchanged for new fluid about once every two years or 20,000 miles.
