Signs You May Need New Brake Fluid

 

Of the plethora of things that can wear down on your vehicle, the last thing you want is worn brakes. The most crucial component of the braking system is brake fluid. Without the proper amount of fluid throughout the system, your vehicle cannot safely stop. Thus, if you notice any of the signs, it’s time to call Brakes on Demand. If you need brakes repair, we can get the job done. Plus, we come to you, so you don’t need to worry about driving a vehicle to a shop if it’s in unsafe condition!

Poor Brake Fluid

 

Over time, your brake fluid can wear down and become less effective. This is because the fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs water and moisture inside the braking system. As the amount of water content increases, the boiling point of the fluid decreases. Thus, it can lead to poor braking performance over time.

Signs You Need New Brake Fluid

 

If you have a leak in the brake system, or just has broken down from use over time, a brake fluid flush should be in your future. If you’re driving and notice any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to pull over and inspect your vehicle. Then, either call Brakes on Demand or your local towing service just in case. You do not want to put yourself or others at risk on the road.

 

Brake Illumination Light

 

If you notice your brake sensor light coming on, it means that you could be having an issue with your brake fluid. On many cars, low brake fluid can trigger the light to come on.

 

Low or Dirty Fluid

 

If you notice dirty and dark-looking brake fluid or low brake fluid, you should get your car repaired quickly. Extremely low brake fluid can indicate that there is a leak somewhere in your brake system.

 

Mushy Brake Pedals

 

Low-brake fluid can lead to mushy feeling brake pedals. In other words, when you step on the brake pedal, it feels spongy. This can be due to air in the system due to heat.

 

Recent Brake Repair

 

If you’ve recently repaired your brakes, the mechanic should have replaced your brake fluid as well. You need to flush out all of the old fluid to ensure the new brakes will function properly. If this wasn’t the case, you should get it done as soon as possible.
