Brake Fluid Flush in Kensington, PEI
Why should I get this done?
We believe that a brake flush should be done about every 50,000 kms.
As the brake fluid moves through your brake system, it will begin to pick up dirt and debris from the natural deterioration of the brake system. This dirt and debris then continues to circulate through your brake system, until you have a brake flush done on your car. This dirt and debris makes the brake system less effective, making your car less safe to drive, and over time leads to more damage.
Moisture is also another cause for concern when it comes to your brakes. Brake fluid is “hygroscopic,” which means it actively attracts moisture from the air. Moisture can get into your system and that leads to rust, which leads to more nasty bits in your brake fluid. Many parts of your braking system are made of metal, flushing the brake fluid can prevent corrosion and failure of those metal components. As the moisture builds up in your system it impacts how well the brake fluid does its job. As more moisture accumulates in the system the brake fluid becomes watered down and the system gets overloaded with excess fluid.
Regular brake flushing can prevent this and keep your brakes responsive and safe.
All this adds up to a brake system with compromised effectiveness and decreased stopping power.
