Why do brakes stop a car? The pads press down on the wheels to slow and stop things, but the pads rely on other components. And all parts rely on brake fluid to work. Brake fluid, however, doesn't always receive the recognition regarding its necessity.

Brake fluid creates pressure within the brake lines. The pressure, at a powerful level, forces the parts to put the necessary force on the wheels.

The fluid does need to be clean and at proper levels to do its job. Otherwise, the brakes could perform poorly and cause an accident. So, stay on top of brake fluid levels and make sure the fluid is clean. A routine maintenance check could help reduce issues with fluid woes. The service technician might also check the lines for wear and tear.

The techs at Bob Utter Lincoln want to help you with brake issues and routine maintenance. Call the service department in Sherman for an appointment.
