Leaks, low fluid levels, or improper maintenance introduces air into to your brake system.
Air in your brake lines causes:
Lack of braking power
Decreased gas mileage
Premature brake pad wear
Bleeding brakes removes air and returns your brake system to optimal performance.
Light yellow brake fluid darkens with water absorption
Why you should replace your brake fluid?
Time increases brake fluid moisture, lowering the boiling point
This increases the probability of brake failure because vaporization of the fluid
Vapor leads to catastrophic failure
After a few years, the boiling point is lowered to a hazardous level.
Automotive professionals recommend changing your brake fluid every couple of years.
Are you in the danger zone?
Brake fluid with too much water also promotes corrosion and pitting
Such problems lead to very costly repairs down the road.
