Brake Fluid Exchange Intervals
While a good rule of thumb is that every 30,000 miles (or two years) you should change your brake fluid, it really depends on the kind of driving you do. Cars that move heavy loads or that experience a lot of braking throughout their day can need a brake fluid exchange earlier than others. Some cars may be driven very gingerly and may not need a brake fluid exchange for a long time. To complicate the matter, even the air’s moisture content can change how your brake fluid works, so come down and our experts will help you check your brake fluid to see if it needs changing.

Why Brake Fluid Needs to Be Exchanged
The hydraulic system inside your brakes functions via hydraulic pressure, and your fluid needs to have the right properties to maintain that pressure. Over time, it can become contaminated with particles and moisture that decrease the fluid’s hydraulic properties. It can also decay, which makes it more inefficient. Since brake fluid also lubricates your braking system, the buildup of old fluid can also prevent your brakes from working as smoothly, and when it comes to brakes, you need all the responsiveness and stopping power you can get!
