The Importance of a Good Working Brake System
If your braking system is not working, your car won't stop or slow down when needed. As such, you won't be able to avoid incidents and accidents. A working brake system can mean the difference between getting involved in a potential accident and bringing the car to a halt in time to avoid a collision. This shows that the brake system is the most important safety feature in your vehicle, and brake repair and maintenance should not be taken lightly.
The Different Components Within the Brake System
The brake system has a number of components that work together to help bring the car to a stop. They include:
- Master Cylinder
- Brake pads and shoes
- Brake Drums
- Brake Horses/Brake Line
- Wheel Cylinders
- Brake Fluid
- Brake Calliper
- Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
Brake Fluid Flushes and Maintenance
Brake fluid has a high boiling point, constant viscosity, and incompressibility. However, brake fluid tends to absorb water with time. Water has some undesirable characteristics, such as low boiling point, and can cause iron metals to rust. The moisture builds up causes the brake system to become less effective.
Since part of the brake system is made of copper, the brake fluid slowly becomes corrosive. To avoid having a contaminated brake fluid that affects the braking system's functionality and effectiveness, it is imperative to be taking your car for a brake service for a fluid flush on a regular basis. Talk to our technicians at Jeff's Automotive in PA about how often and when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
