Changing your brake fluid regularly and checking its level are part of a preventive maintenance program to keep your car running at peak performance.
When you’re preparing your car for the road, even for a short day trip to, say, the Abita Mystery House, you check to make sure you have gas. And you may even check to make sure your tires look okay. But you probably don’t check your brake fluid.
If you don’t check it, you’re in the majority of drivers. AA1car.com says brake fluid “is one of the most neglected fluids in vehicles today, yet is vitally important for safe driving.” AA1car points out that, as a car ages and the brakes are used, the fluid level not only drops (sometimes to dangerously low levels), the amount of water that gets into the fluid increases. Both conditions mean your brakes aren’t going to work very well. AA1car points out that many experts recommend changing the fluid at least every year or two as a part of your preventive maintenance schedule.
