What is Brake Fluid Used For?

Brake fluid, which is also called hydraulic fluid, is an important substance that helps to keep your vehicle's braking system in optimal shape. It lies within the brake lines, and it is vital because if your automobile doesn't have brake fluid, you won't be able to stop the car when you apply pressure to the brake pedal. You can find out more about brake fluid by reading our content below.

Brake fluid is made with a silicone-base or a glycol-base. When vehicles come equipped with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), it will probably need glycol-based brake fluid. If your vehicle doesn't have ABS technology, a silicone-based brake fluid will probably need to be used. The best way to determine how often your vehicle's brake fluid needs to be changed can be found if you reference your owner's manual. In addition, you can also consult with one of our service technicians to see how often it should be changed.

When you need to have your vehicle serviced, we welcome you to contact our service center at Acura of Johnston.
