What Does Brake Fluid Do?

Most people know that your vehicle requires brake fluid to make your brakes work, but what exactly does brake fluid do? Luckily, we here at Porsche of West Houston are here to give you the rundown of the basics of brake fluid.

When you hit the brakes of your vehicle, compression occurs which moves fluid through your brake lines. Brake fluid can operate at very high temperatures and pressures, which is perfect for the environment created under the hood of a car. This increases pressure, which contracts the brake pads. This friction is what is actually slows your car down and would not be possible without brake fluid. This is why it is imperative that your brake fluid levels be kept full at all times.
