What Is A Brake Fluid Flush?

A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. 89 Pioneer Way Mountain View, CA 94041 (650) 487-2240A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. is the best Brake Fluid Flush Auto Repair Shop in Mountain View, CA. Just like most oils and lubricants, brake fluid gets old and dirty and needs to be replaced. Draining out the old brake fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid is what we mean by a “brake fluid flush”. Most auto manufacturers recommend that you get your brake fluid flushed about every 30,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first.

Since a vehicle’s brake system is such an important safety feature, keeping them running in tip top shape should be every driver’s goal. Flying down the freeway or driving down a steep hill is not the place you want to learn that your brake system is in need of repair. You can bring your vehicle into A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. any time you want to and we will gladly check out your brake system and let you know how it is doing.

Can I Do A Brake Fluid Flush Myself?

Draining out and replacing brake fluid is not as easy as it sounds. It is not as easy as draining and changing engine oil. A brake system is basically a hydraulic system where the oil goes through pipes and tubes. If you get an air bubble in the tube it can keep your brake system from working properly. For example when you press on your brake pedal your brake pads may not be able to press as hard as they should against the brake rotors and drums to stop your vehicle.

That being said if you have been taught how to do a brake fluid flush, and have done them before, then obviously you can do them yourself. Our only caution is this is not something you want to try on your own without someone there who knows what they are doing. This is way too important for your safety, and that of your family, to take any unnecessary chances.
