Your brakes are a hydraulic system and as such, they need hydraulic fluid in order to work properly. The brake fluid is hydraulic fluid that is essential to your brake system in making sure your brakes work properly. Our excellent staff and technicians at John Amato Nissan will get you the right brake fluid and exchange it for you so you can stay safe out on the road.
Brake fluid is hydraulic fluid that moves the various components of the braking system. When you press on the brake pedal inside the car, the brake fluid moves down the brake lines and works to make the brake caliper clamp down on the rotor to stop the car. When the brake fluid is low or dirty, it will not be able to make the different parts of the brakes move to stop the car. If the brake system cannot function, you will not be able to stop your car, making it very unsafe to drive.
There are some symptoms of low or bad brake fluid that you can watch for to determine if there is something wrong. The first symptom that you might notice is that the brakes will feel spongy or soft, taking more effort to stop the car than it normally does.
Another problem you might notice is that you feel your car shudder or pulsate in the steering wheel. If your brake fluid is not working well, you are going to need to get it changed or get more added as quickly as possible. You should be changing out your brake fluid at the normal service intervals every 2 years or every 24,000 miles.
If you suspect that there is something wrong with your brake fluid or the brake system, you should get it addressed as quickly as possible. Making sure that your brakes work is extremely important to your safety and other drivers’ safety as well.
