Brakes, like anything else, wear down over time. Flushing your brake fluid removes the majority of contaminated fluid from your brake system and replaces it with brand new fluid. So, to answer the question yes, it’s extremely important to get a brake flush, which is usually recommended every 30,000 miles. Moisture can get in your system which turns into rust that flakes off and ends up in your brake fluid. Contaminants from calipers, wheel cylinders, and valves break off and can get in your brake fluid too. All these things ruin the stopping power and effectiveness of your brake system. After a flush, you can expect quieter, more responsive brakes and smoother stopping! Stop by Ferber’s Tire and Auto where we can provide a brake inspection and a full BG brake fluid flush!
