What Does Brake Fluid Do?

Every car owner hears about brake fluid at some point, but how often is the function of brake fluid explained? It's easy to overlook because it so seldom needs attention but consider how critical your car's brakes are to your safety.

When you step on the brake pedal, it's the brake fluid pumped into cylinders in the brake system that cause the brake pads to clamp down on your car's wheel and stop it. The brake fluid pressure in this pneumatic system is what creates the amount force needed to stop a car quickly on the road. This is why catching leaks is critical: A loss of brake fluid will weaken or disable your brakes.

We have professional automotive technicians here at Otis Ford Inc. who can check your car's brake fluid and take care of any maintenance it may require.
