What Does Brake Fluid do?

May 18th, 2018 by

Brake fluid is necessary to ensure your vehicle stops when you step on the brake pedal. Drivers tend to think brakes work on their own and may forget about brake fluid and its importance. Stop by our Jaguar service center in Austin and let us do the checking for you.

Brake fluid keeps your brakes operating correctly and lubricates the brake pads and nearby components. Once you touch the brake pedal, it compresses the piston that’s inside the caliper. This compression sends the brake fluid through the brake lines and to rotor, which puts pressure on the brake pads. The brake pads then make your vehicle slow down. Such a simple fluid yet so important!

We realize how busy your life keeps you and want to lighten the load. Stop at our automotive service shop and allow us to check your brake fluid level and set you up with regularly scheduled appointments.
