Low Brake Fluid? Here Are The Warning Signs.

Think your vehicle has low brake fluid? The last thing you want is worn brakes that wear out on the road! If you need new brakes in MA, stop by Ray’s Auto Service. We can help you diagnose any issues you may have with your car. Without the proper level of brake fluid, your vehicle cannot safely stop. Here are warning signs of low brake fluid. 

 

Did you know?

Did you know that your brake fluid can wear down and become less effective over time? This is because the fluid is hygroscopic. So, the brake fluid absorbs water inside the braking system. As the amount of water content increases, the boiling point of the fluid decreases. Thus, it can lead to poor braking performance over time. 

 

Signs You Need New Brake Fluid

If you have a leak in the brake system, or just has broken down from use over time, a brake fluid flush should be in your future. If you’re driving and notice any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to pull over and inspect your vehicle. Then, either call Brakes on Demand or your local towing service just in case. You do not want to put yourself or others at risk on the road. 

 

Brake Illumination Light

If you notice your brake sensor light coming on, it means that you could be having an issue with your brake fluid. On many cars, low brake fluid can trigger the light to come on.

 

Low or Dirty Fluid

If you notice dirty and dark-looking brake fluid or low brake fluid, you should get your car repaired quickly. Extremely low brake fluid can indicate that there is a leak somewhere in your brake system.

 

Mushy Brake Pedals

Low-brake fluid can lead to mushy feeling brake pedals. In other words, when you step on the brake pedal, it feels spongy. This can be due to air in the system due to heat.
