Why Change Brake Fluid?
Brake fluid is a hot topic because most people don't know why it should be changed. Did you know the average motorist who drives 10,000 to 15,000 miles a year uses his brakes about 75,000 times a year? Did you know that nearly half of all motorists in a recent Car Care Council survey said brake failure was their number one fear amongst driving emergencies?
So consider this Diagnostic Testing Tool: after three years of service, the average boiling point of the brake fluid has dropped to a potentially dangerous level because of moisture contamination and may not meet minimum union requirements for brake fluid.
Brake fluid is stored in the master brake cylinder reservoir. The reservoir is usually a translucent plastic container on top of the master cylinder. This allows you to see the fluid level inside without having to remove the filler cap. Opening the cap unnecessarily should be avoided because it allows moist air to enter the reservoir, and moisture is not good for brake fluid.
So when the Automotive Tools brake fluid have been used for a period of time, we need use brake fluid tester (brake fluid detector) to check the moisture content of the brake fluid to ensure if it is still safe to use.
