Brake fluid exchange service is one of the many routine services required for the optimum safety and performance of your vehicle. Here is more information about this service.
In brake fluid exchange service the existing brake fluid in the brake system is flushed and replaced with fresh brake fluid. The brake fluid loses its effectiveness over time due to internal breakdown or contamination from the outside. The most common contaminant for the brake fluid is moisture which can gradually seep into the brake system. With an ineffective brake fluid, it might not be able to perform its role of lubricating the brake parts and allowing the transfer of power through the brake system. In extreme cases, ineffective brake fluid might also lead to complete brake failure.
Apart from following the recommended service interval for brake fluid exchange service, you should also watch out for common signs of ineffective brake fluid. These signs include illumination of ABS light in the dashboard, spongy or stiff brake pedal, vibrations in the steering wheel or brake pedal, a burning smell, or unusual noise from the brakes. If you notice any of these signs, you can bring your vehicle to our certified technicians at Cochran Volkswagen of South Hills. We will inspect the brake system, including the brake fluid reservoir, to determine if any brake service or repair is required by your vehicle.
We recommend you follow the brake fluid exchange service interval recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. For most types of vehicles, the service interval is around two to three years.
