Facts About Brake Fluid

Brake fluid can also be called hydraulic fluid and is an important component of your braking system. Without brake fluid, your brakes wouldn't enable the vehicle to come to a stop when you apply brake pressure. It should be drained and changed on a regular basis to make certain that your brakes stay in good shape. To learn more about brake fluid, read further.

There are many brake fluids on the market, but the two primary types are glycol-based and silicone=based. For vehicles that come with an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), a glycol-based brake fluid will need to be used, and cars without ABS will more than likely use a silicone-based brake fluid. How often does your brake fluid need to be changed? Vehicles have different maintenance needs, which is why it is best to consult your owner's handbook or speak with one of our service technicians.

When you need to have your brake fluid changed, contact our service center located at Spradley Hyundai.
