Brake Fluid: What Does It Do?

Brake fluid is one of those fluids that a car owner can easily overlook because it rarely needs to be refilled, but there does come a time when it should be replaced in a car's life.

That's because brake fluid is a critical part of how a vehicle's brakes function. The brakes can be in perfect working order mechanically but weaken or fail because of the brake fluid. Auto brakes are powered pneumatically by fluid moving into cylinders. This fluid action happens when you press down on the brake pedal to multiply the force of your foot many times to stop your car.

This is why we encourage car owners to bring their vehicles in for a brake fluid check. Here at Piazza Honda of Pottstown, our service technicians can assess whether your vehicle is due for a brake fluid exchange.
