A brake fluid flush every 2 years or 30,000 miles (48,000 km) will help prevent brake hydraulic problems and save you from costly repair bills. Over time, your brake fluid absorbs moisture in your brake hydraulic system. Your brake fluid can only absorb so much, then the moisture starts to rust your brake hydraulics from the inside out. This rust will also contaminate your brake hydraulics system and can cause problems with your brake and anti-lock brake systems. These problems can be very costly to diagnose and repair. A brake fluid flush will replace the contaminated fluid with fresh new fluid and flush any contaminates out of the system. As with all preventative maintenance services, the cost of a brake fluid flush is small compared to the repair bills you will get down the road. Remember your car is a machine with many parts and systems to keep you and your family safe on the road. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
