Brake Fluid Exchange Service

Brake Fluid Exchange Service

Car service can be overwhelming even when you're on a routine maintenance schedule. Parts like your brakes are complicated, especially when you think about how many components make it up, like pads and fluids. Knowing when to exchange, repair and replace can be daunting, but your team at Germain Nissan of Columbus is here to provide a stress-free experience with our factory-trained and certified technicians.

Brake Fluid Exchange

So we know it's important, but what is it exactly? Your brake fluid is what helps your car to actually stop. The hydraulic fluid is what helps to operate and move the different parts in your car's braking system. When this fluid becomes too contaminated, it diminishes your braking power and can become hazardous.

When to exchange

Your owner's manual will tell you a lot, but it doesn't always have all the answers. Generally, there is no set time to change your brake fluid, but as with every other part, it's best practice to do it during a regular interval. Most people have it checked during oil changes and have it changed about once every four to five years. Factors like personal driving habits and conditions may impact the frequency. 

Signs you need a brake fluid exchange

If you're not sure about the condition of your brake fluid, come see our techs for additional insight and help. Here are some other signs to look for:

  • When you check the oil, it's murky
  • Smells burnt
  • Below the line
  • Brake pedal becomes more difficult to push
  • Check brake lights turns on the dashboard

It's always best to come get your car checked out - no matter what for - the second you think something may be wrong. Getting it checked early can save tons of money and time down the road.
