Replacing Brake Fluid

When Should I Change My Brake Fluid?

For the average driver, your car's brake fluid should be flushed and replaced every 30,000 miles—which is about every two years. If you drive long distances regularly or through harsh conditions, like snow, dirt, and ice, you’ll need the brake fluid replaced more frequently.

You can get this done at your yearly inspection since your car will already be in the shop.

Why Is Replacing Brake Fluid Important?

Brake fluid is crucial to the safety of your vehicle. It helps keep all the moving parts lubricated and functioning properly. Over time, the braking process generates heat, which can wear away your brakes and create debris, gunk, and dirt.

When you flush that out and replace it with fresh, clean fluid, you ensure that everything can continue operating smoothly.
