Brake Fluid Service

brakesBrake Fluid Service St. Louis Auto Repair Brake Fluid Service When we push on the brake pedal, we need to be confident that all will work as it should.  There are many moving parts that work together to bring thousands of pounds of roaring engine and body parts to a screeching stop.  Many of these parts are controlled through foot upon foot of brake line that is filled with brake fluid being pushed and pulled through the lines by the master cylinder.  The cleanliness of this fluid is vital to the function of the entire system, yet is often dismissed or overlooked by many technicians and vehicle owners.
Have you noticed a spongy brake pedal, felt what seems like unusual wearing of brake parts, or just experienced a gradual loss of brake function?  Any of these can be an indicator that the fluid in your braking system needs to be serviced. Brake Fluid Flushes are typically recommended due to a high copper content in the Brake Fluid. Our technician will test the Brake Fluid to see if there is too much copper present in the system.  This can indicate that  brake parts in the system are starting to be affected by corrosion. Brake Fluid also attracts moisture even though it is a closed system. When water is in the Braking System, it can get pushed out to the calipers and will boil under very hot braking situations, causing brake pedal fade. The complete removal of the contaminated fluid is the only way to fix these problems.
