Keeping your brake system in proper working order is imperative to protect you and your passengers while you’re driving your car. Brake oil is one of the most important components of the braking system, but it is often one of the most overlooked parts. VPW stocks a range of brake fluids formulated to keep your brakes working and to preserve the look and reliability of your vehicle.

Why You Need New Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is a hydraulic oil which transfers brake pedal pressure into caliper piston pressure, slowing down your car. It’s a vital part of the braking system. Over time, however, and throughout heat cycles, brake fluid will start to deteriorate and lose its effectiveness. Further, moisture can build up inside the braking system, contaminate the fluid and reduce the brake oil’s performance and reliability. This means the brake fluid needs to be replaced every two years. A complete brake fluid flush will remove all the old fluid and have you safely back onto the road.

If your pedal feels spongy or squishy, or if you’ve boiled the brake fluid by tackling steep descents or heavy braking at the track, then you should replace it. If you’re unsure about whether you need to replace your brake fluid, you can always get it tested but, when it comes down to it, it’s better to be safe than sorry. VPW also sells brake fluid that helps inhibit internal systems corrosion.
