WHY SHOULD YOU GET YOUR BRAKES AND FLUID SERVICED ?

 

There is an increasing awareness of the dangers of water and corrosion producing Contaminates. Brake fluid contaminated by moisture dangerously lowers the boiling point of the fluid to the point that, even under ordinary condition, your brakes could get hot enough to cause the brake fluid to boil causing vapor to form in the brake system. The vapor is compressible, causing a low or no brake pedal. Moisture gets into the fluid because conventional brake fluid is hydroscopic (it has a magnetic attraction for moisture, which it absorbs from the atmosphere). In the vehicle, moisture is absorbed through the brake master cylinder reservoir and permeable brake hoses. As a result the moisture along with the steel line, rubber hoses, cast iron, aluminum and brake fluid temperature that can reach 450 to 500 degrees, causes electrochemical reaction that makes the brake fluid so acidic that it can result in early failure of brake components. Brake fluid contamination has become so much a concern of some major car manufacturers that they have added it to their required maintenance. Failure to change your vehicle brake fluid can result in very costly repairs, if you have ABS type brakes, component failure can run into the thousands! So don't delay in having our ASE certified technicians perform this service for you.
