Everyone knows that when brakes wear out they need to be replaced. But most people don’t realize that brake fluid wears out too and should be replaced periodically. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture. Over time, the increase in moisture can affect brake performance and cause a dramatic decrease in braking ability. In severe cases, loss of braking can occur.
Brake fluid should be flushed from the brake system and replaced every 30,000 miles. Flushing the brakes requires opening up a bleeder valve at each wheel and completely flushing out the old fluid and replacing it with new fluid. Check with a factory manual for correct brake bleeding procedures and for correct fluid specification.
A word of caution, not flushing the brakes properly will lead to brake failure. This may be a job best left to a professional. A service professional can also test your brake fluid to determine the state of condition.
