Brake Fluid and Why it Requires Routine Maintenance

Brake fluid is a chemical solution preferred by the automotive industry for its hydraulic property – it transfers energy efficiently without compressing under extreme pressure. Brake fluid commonly found in all automobiles also contains lubricants to help it move freely throughout the braking system while keeping the components cool. The major brake fluid limitation is that it has a hygroscopic chemical property; it accumulates moisture when exposed. Brake fluid requires exchange maintenance because accumulating too much moisture leads to the moisture boiling into vapor inside the brake lines. Water vapor will compress inside the braking system to cause poor hydraulic performance.

How Often Does Brake Fluid Need to be Exchanged?

Brake fluid exchange services are recommended by time rather than mileage. This is because hydraulic brake fluid does not wear out depending upon the severity of use but from environmental exposure. Brake fluid will absorb moisture from the air in the form of humidity. Volkswagen generally recommends brake fluid exchanges every 2 years no matter how many miles traveled due to brake fluid’s chemistry and risk.

Bad Brake Fluid Indicators

It is also wise to know the bad brake fluid indicators because powerful braking is ultimately a safety consideration. We recommend getting the brake fluid inspected and exchanged as needed in response to these warning signs:

  • Dashboard brake system (ABS) warning light
  • The brake pedal feels different – softer or needs to be pushed closer to the floorboard
  • Braking noises
  • The vehicle requires more time/distance to stop
  • Burning odor
  • Brake fluid leaking
