Every vehicle manufactured after the early 1900s has a caliper-type disc brake system. The brake systems of today are very similar to the first automobile disc brakes invented in England in 1902. Although innovations have made modern brakes more reliable, powerful, and durable, engineers have yet to figure out how to make brake fluid last forever. Brake Fluid is hygroscopic and attracts moisture that causes corrosion in wheel cylinders and brake calipers. Corrosion in the brake system eventually leads to leaks. Brake fluid is a durable liquid but has one main limitation; it absorbs water that ultimately causes its boiling point to decrease, and when that happens, brake fluid that otherwise would not compress becomes compressible. Compressible brake fluid will reduce stopping power and needs to be exchanged immediately with genuine manufacturer-approved Brake Fluid.
Since brake fluid is a hydraulic liquid that absorbs moisture over time and loses its integrity, it needs to get inspected and exchanged as is necessary to ensure peak brake system performance. Autos of the Mall recommends monitoring your brake system performance for any warning signs of contaminated brake fluid. Here are some of the most common warning signs that you need to schedule a Brake Fluid Exchange Service:
