What is Brake Fluid, And What is it Used For?

Brake fluid is a very important part of any braking system; in fact, it could be the deciding factor in stopping in time or potentially getting into a harmful accident. And nobody wants that.

When you press the brake to peddle in your car; the fluid is used to transfer force into pressure on all four of your wheels. So, if there is not the correct amount of fluid in the system, then there will not be enough pressure given to slow your car as fast as it should. It is defiantly worth the time to check the brake fluid at least every time you may open the hood. It doesn't take more than a quick glance at most vehicles.

If you're not sure where to check your brake fluid at, bring it on over to Wichita Falls, TX, and the guys at Patterson Honda would love to show you and answer any other questions you may have.
