How Does Brake Fluid Work?

A car's brakes seem to work like magic. A small press on a pedal slows down more than a ton of moving metal. Of course, brakes don't work by way of magic. Various parts and components contribute to their function. Understanding the role brake fluid plays in that function is important. You want to be sure brake fluid levels remains at the proper amount.

Brake fluid runs through the all-important brake lines. The fluid survives high temperatures in order to support the overall braking system. Pressing on the brake pedal sends brake fluid through the lines to create necessary pressure required to stop the car.

Brake fluid does need to be exchanged at some point. Also, brake runs run the risk of leaks. Don't assume the fluid is fine. The fluid has to be checked by a professional to be sure things are truly fine. Otherwise, the brakes might not be working in a safe manner.
