What is the Brake Fluid?

Brake fluid is needed in your vehicle to make sure the brakes operate effectively and slow a car or bring you to a stop when needed. Here at Loving Nissan, we refer to this as brake fluid when it is a form of hydraulic fluid that comes in many different forms. Making sure your brake fluid is topped up during any scheduled maintenance is a key part of driving around Lufkin because you want the confidence that your car will stop when you want it to.

Two types of brake fluid can be used in your vehicle depending on whether you have an ABS braking system. If your car has ABS brakes you will generally use any of the high-quality glycol-based brake fluids on the market to keep the parts of your brake system moving effectively. A car or truck that does not have ABS brakes will use silicone-based brake fluids.
