Your vehicle's hydraulic braking system relies on the proper fluid to keep it functioning at optimal levels. The brake fluid experts at Modern Classic Motors in Grand Junction, CO want to help you to understand more about the maintenance of this important vehicle component.

This fluid is the chemical solution that works to amplify the force of your foot as you press on the brake pedal, converting this pressure to the vehicle's actual brakes. Your owner's manual will tell you what type of viscosity you should look for in your brake fluid.

Because this fluid takes on moisture from the air, it needs to be changed regularly in order for it to work as it should. Contamination can cause the fluid to lose its power, resulting in faulty brakes. Signs of low brake fluid include a soft pedal, an illuminated ABS safety light, or the presence of an oily fluid puddling under your vehicle.
