How Does Brake Fluid Work?

Brake fluid, or hydraulic fluid, flows throughout the vehicle's brake lines and helps distribute force along the brake system, causing it to stop when you push the gas pedal down. As you might imagine, brake fluid is extremely important to the operation of your vehicle; having low or dirty brake fluid inside your vehicle could compromise your brake system, putting yourself and your passengers at risk. If your Nissan is in need of a brake fluid flush and replacement, the only place to go is Courtesy Nissan of Tampa, located in the heart of Tampa Bay just minutes from Wesley Chapel, Clearwater, St. Petersburg abd Brandon.

How Often Should I Schedule A Nissan Brake Fluid Replacement?

While it may vary based on your specific model, we recommend that you replace the brake fluid in your Nissan every 20,000 miles. When you break it down, that means that you should have it replaced around every fourth oil change, or - in some cases - every 24 to 36 months. (This may vary based on vehicle age, driving conditions, and other factors). Since brake fluid attracts moisture over time, not replacing the brake fluid during a regular interval means that the moisture it collects could affect your brake system, causing them to corrode and putting you at an added risk of an accident while on the road. In addition, brake fluid can get dirty over time, which also can lead it to attract moisture and lead to the issues mentioned above. We recommend bringing your vehicle into Courtesy Nissan of Tampa for not only a brake fluid inspection to reveal the cleanliness and levels of it, but a flush and replacement to ensure you are all set to go in this area.
