Brake fluid is often overlooked by car owners because it doesn't need their attention as often as a vehicle's coolant or motor oil. However, old brake fluid can cause problems when it begins to break down. It will become discolored when this happens.

Degraded brake fluid can become a safety issue if ignored. It can weaken your vehicle's brakes or even cause them to fail. Brake fluid is important because it provides the power needed to stop your car quickly. If the brakes are weakened, you'll notice that it takes longer to stop and the brake pedal is softer.

Here at Porterville Ford, our service center has qualified technicians who can check your brake fluid and determine if it's still good. If not, they'll replace it for you. Stop by our location in Porterville, CA or call to make an appointment.
