Brake System Maintenance & Fluid Exchanges Explained

The automotive braking system relies on a hydraulic fluid called brake fluid to transfer stopping power from the master cylinder pump into the calipers that squeeze the brake pads into the rotors connected to the wheels. Hydraulic brake fluid is durable but has two critical limitations in the water it readily absorbs and leaks from worn parts. Brake fluid should be inspected at major service intervals and exchanged when it loses integrity or proactively every two to three years. You should always reference the owner’s manual and schedule your vehicle’s brake fluid exchange as recommended.

What are the Warning Signs of Brake Fluid Trouble?

Bad brake fluid will show itself when braking. Noticing any of the warning signs of bad brake fluid should prompt an immediate inspection and corrective maintenance for safety. Here are the warning signs that show up while braking when the brake fluid is not performing as expected:

  • Requiring a greater distance to stop
  • Brake pedal feels different
  • Grinding or scraping noises
  • Brake fluid leaking
  • Dashboard warning light

What Happens When Brake Fluid is Not Maintained?

Hydraulic brake fluid is the braking system’s lifeblood. Without brake fluid, the energy needed to stop cannot be sent into the calipers that clamp brake pads against the rotors. This is a big safety problem as you will notice an obvious decline in braking performance with your vehicle requiring a greater distance to stop. Getting brake fluid exchanges as recommended could be the difference between a close call and getting into an accident.
