The Function of Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is necessary for the proper functioning of brakes in all vehicles. The fluid is designed to perform under high pressure and temperatures to create the compression and friction that travels from the brake to the brake rotors that slow or stop the motion of the wheels. Over the life of the vehicle, brake fluid commonly deteriorates when it absorbs moisture and debris from the air. When this happens, it may take longer to stop your vehicle. You might also notice less pressure when you apply the brakes.

Brake fluid is either glycol or silicon-based. Glycol-based fluids are installed in vehicles having anti-lock brake systems. Silicon-based fluids are installed in vehicles not having ABS components. If you notice a problem with your braking system, bring the vehicle in to see the technicians at Bob-Boyd Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram. Our experienced team will inspect and diagnose your problem and make the necessary corrections.
