Car owners should keep their vehicle maintained at all times. Otherwise, it won’t run as smoothly as they want. To achieve optimum running performance every time, drivers should ensure their car has the right amount of high-quality brake fluid. 

Also known as hydraulic fluid, brake fluid is an essential part of your car’s braking system. Without brake fluid, your car won’t stop properly when you use the brakes. 

There are different types of brake fluid. A glycol-based brake fluid is ideal for vehicles with an anti-lock brake system. On the other hand, silicon-based brake fluid is commonly used on vehicles without ABS. 

While most auto mechanics would recommend changing your brake fluid at least once a year, it is also advisable to refer to your owner’s manual for the recommended brake fluid change.
