Brake Fluid Exchange Service

null


If you want your Mitsubishi vehicle to run like new for years to come, it’s important to follow your recommended service schedule to a T! Every model comes with a unique service schedule, designed to catch problems early and keep you moving in Manhattan Beach. You may have noticed that your vehicle is due for a brake fluid exchange — but what exactly is this service? Learn more about brake fluid service and the purpose of brake fluid in the guide below from Redondo Mitsubishi.

What Does Brake Fluid Do?

Without brake fluid, your vehicle’s hydraulic braking system couldn’t function. A hydraulic fluid that circulates through the braking system, brake fluid registers the pressure applied by the driver on the brake pedal, and transfers it to the brakes to slow the vehicle. In addition, brake fluid captures dirt and debris before they can enter the brake system and cause damage to brake pads and other components.

Like automotive fluids such as motor oil and transmission fluid, brake fluid loses efficacy over time. If there is too much debris in the fluid, it cannot properly power and protect your vehicle’s hydraulic braking system.

When to Schedule Brake Fluid Service

There’s no specific mileage mandate on when to change brake fluid, but it generally lasts about four years or 100,000 miles. However, your vehicle’s recommended service schedule (found in your owner’s manual) should provide an interval that’s specific to your make and model. If you’ve noticed reduced brake function despite recently replacing your brake pads, it may be time to schedule brake fluid service near El Segundo.

What happens during a brake fluid exchange? A certified technician will check your brake pads and other brake system components, and test your brake fluid to determine its condition. Then, they’ll flush the system and replace the old fluid with fresh brake fluid.
