Exploring Brake Fluid Replacement in Grand Forks, ND.

Are you having problems with your brakes? Well, the cause of the challenges could very well be your brake fluid. Use the steps below to check for any issues with your brake fluid.

  • Dust off the top of the brake fluid reservoir to prevent dirt particles from falling into the fluid.
  • Open the reservoir to assess fluid level; you can use a screwdriver to unscrew the metallic opening. You should not leave it open for long as the brake fluid absorbs moisture and becomes ruined if exposed for a long time.
  • Check the level of the fluid and ensure it is filled at least halfway to the top or more.
  • Observe the color of your brake fluid in addition. If it appears to be dark brown, you should certainly bring in your vehicle to replace the brake fluid.

As you check on your brake fluid, remember that the brake fluid easily corrodes painted surfaces and is toxic too. Replacement of your fluids should occur after two years or after you have covered more than 50,000 miles. If you want to change your brake fluid or consult a factory trained and certified technician regarding how to do so, please contact us here at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Grand Forks at your earliest convenience!
