Brake Fluid Change in Grand Rapids, MI
All Auto Services in Grand Rapids offers complete brake system service and repairs, including brake fluid flush. Most car owners know that from time to time, brake fluid will need to be changed. It’s because brake fluid attracts moisture from the air. If the moisture content increases beyond a certain point, the water in the brake fluid will boil off during braking (water has a much lower boiling point than the brake fluid) resulting in increased braking distance – not something we want to experiment with.
Brake fluid flush aka brake fluid exchange involves removing old brake fluid, refilling the brake system with new fluid and checking that there are no air pockets in the brake lines. Naturally we select replacement brake fluid that matches the characteristics specified by the manufacturer of your vehicle.
How often should your vehicles have the brake fluid change?
Many manufacturers recommend brake fluid exchange every 20,000 miles or 2 years. At All Auto Services we prefer to test the brake fluid when the 2 year mark is approaching, so we know exactly the water content of the fluid, and we can let you know with certainty if the brake fluid needs to be replaced.
Naturally, we can also inspect the entire braking system – brake pads/shoes, brake lines, hoses, rotors, brake calipers, backing plates, brake master cylinder – it’s a good idea to have a brake system inspection scheduled before the onset of winter weather, and before road conditions deteriorate.
