Brake fluid is a hydraulic liquid that transfers power readily when in good condition. It serves the Chevrolet braking system well under favorable conditions but will ultimately require some maintenance with enough mileage due to one chemical limitation: it readily absorbs moisture that reduces its boiling point and can cause defective braking. Its second threat is worn components allowing leaks. If brake fluid escapes the closed braking system, the braking system cannot transfer stopping power into the brake pads and rotors. Due to the risks of leaks and contamination, brake fluid requires routine inspections and exchange service when found contaminated or leaking.
Knowing the warning signs of faulty brake fluid can preserve your safety and might keep you out of an accident due to defective performance. If brake fluid gets contaminated or leaks, there will be warning signs that show up in your driving experience. If you notice any of these symptoms while braking, it is an excellent safety decision to get a prompt inspection and corrective maintenance as needed:
Brake fluid exchange involves the testing and changing the hydraulic fluid within the braking system. Once the brake fluid is confirmed to be faulty by contamination or leaking, we will remove what remains from the system at the calipers and master cylinder, inspect all braking components, and install the recommended GM factory brake fluid to specifications. A driving test by the certified technician confirms result – powerful braking at specifications.
