As a vehicle owner in Flemington, NJ you should have a basic understanding of car maintenance. After you read this short article from Ditschman/Flemington Lincoln you will know all you need to know about brake fluid and how important it is to your vehicle.

The braking system in your car requires a type of fluid that is known as hydraulic. The important thing to know about hydraulic brake fluid is that it cannot be compressed. This means that it can be passed through the brake lines on your car or truck and used to create the pressure required to make brake pads close.

Brake fluid also absorbs moisture. This even includes any moisture in air particles. You should have the brake fluid replaced in your vehicle as necessary to make sure the fluid does not degrade and break down from excess moisture.
