An Overview of What Brake Fluid Is and Does

Your vehicle will not be able to come to a stop without the presence of brake fluid. The fluid is what moves several components within the braking system each time that you press the brake pedal. Brake fluid is contained within the brake line, and it is what causes the rotors and calipers to spring into action.

The fluid that is used in your car is likely made from a glycol base if your car has an anti-lock braking system (ABS). If your car doesn't have an ABS system, the fluid will likely be made from a silicone base instead.

If you notice that brake fluid is leaking from your vehicle, take it to a Rick Roush Honda technician right away. This will ensure that your brakes will work properly the next time that you have to go to work or take the kids to school in Medina.
