Preferred Preowned North likes to help drivers stay informed on subjects related to car maintenance. At our service department, we are often asked about the purpose and function of brake fluid. There are some things you should know about this important fluid for your car.

Brake fluid is a type of hydraulic fluid that is used to create pressure on the rotors of your car. This pressure is what causes your car to stop. Brake fluid is released through the brake lines when you press on the brake pedal. You should check your brake fluid level regularly. Letting it fall below the recommended level can be harmful to your braking system.

We want to invite you down to our dealership here in Colorado Springs, CO where our service team will be happy to explain more about the purpose of your brake fluid. We can also help service the brakes on your car or truck.
