Details About Your Vehicles Brake Fluid

Your vehicle's brake fluid is an important substance that is housed in the brake lines and keeps your braking system in optimal condition. It should be changed on a regular basis because it will degrade with time from moisture in the air. In addition, if your vehicle doesn't have an adequate amount of brake fluid, you may have problems stopping the vehicle when you apply the brakes. To learn more about brake fluid, read our content below.

There are two main kinds of brake fluid. Glycol-based brake fluid is typically used in vehicles that come with an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), and vehicles without this feature will probably use a brake fluid that is silicone-based. Every vehicle has different maintenance needs, which is why it is suggested to read your owner's manual and speak with one of our service technicians to find out how often it should be drained and changed.

If you need to have your vehicle serviced, then contact our service center at Palm Springs Kia in Cathedral City, CA.
