  • The condition of brake fluid is important to automotive safety, reliability and brake system longevity. Brake fluid absorbs moisture over time. Increasing moisture levels in the brake fluid lower the boiling point, increase viscosity and cause corrosion of system components. Brake fluid with high moisture content can boil when extreme braking is required or a pad sticks. The effect of boiling is the same as when there is air in the system. The pedal sinks to the floor and stopping power is… CONTINUE READING
