What Is Brake Fluid?

The braking system in your vehicle uses a very intricate system that actually utilizes hydraulic fluid, or brake fluid, as a method of power to stop a vehicle. Basically, force is transferred into pressure using this liquid, and when you press down on your brake pedal, you will be able to stop your vehicle whether it be slow and steady or for an emergency stop.

There are many parts of your vehicle that you need to maintain over time and your brakes are definitely one of these areas. This is especially important because of the safety factor that is involved. In addition to having your oil changed, topping off transmission fluid, etc., you will need to have your brakes inspected. This will include making sure that the brake fluid levels on your vehicle are acceptable and they can be topped off if need be.
