Why is Brake Fluid Used in Automotive Brakes?

Brake fluid is something many car owners overlook because it seldom requires their attention, but it is a critical fluid that should be monitored. That's because it's the key ingredient to any car's braking power.

Stopping a automobile quickly is a key measure of any vehicle's safety. The amount of force that needs to be applied to a vehicle's wheels for a sudden stop is far more than anybody could provide with their foot by stepping on the brake pedal. Brake fluid fills a pneumatic system that multiplies the force of a driver's foot many times over to stop their car.

Here at Land Rover Fox Valley, we have qualified automotive technicians ready to check your brake fluid and perform any service work it might require, such as stopping a slow leak or replacing it with new fluid.
