A brake system flush service is one of the most important, yet mostly ignored maintenance service your vehicle needs.
One of the first things we learn about vehicles is what makes them run, but what we need to also be focusing on is what makes them stop.
So here is a little rundown of what happens when you use your brakes, and how they function in stopping your car from moving. When you push the brake pedal, the brake fluid is pumped through the system and causes the brake pads to press against the rotors, making the car slow down and eventually stop.
Over time, the brake fluid absorbs air, moisture and sludge, and gets thick and infected, or contaminated as we say in the automotive repair industry. Contaminated fluid is dangerous because it causes braking to feel spongy, or interrupted and significantly reduces braking efficiency, not to mention it can destroy expensive ABS components.
So, what is a brake system flush?
A brake system flush removes the existing, contaminated fluid and moisture out of the system and it is then replaced with new, clean fluid. This procedure ensures proper brake system performance and increases the lifespan of the brake system components and your car.
