Brake fluid is one of the most important additives for your vehicle. Summit Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram wants you to know more about this important fluid and how it functions to keep you safe as you travel around the roadways in Brattleboro, VT.

The braking systems of most vehicles depend upon the use of a special brake fluid. This is a type of hydraulic fluid that cannot be compressed. When the brake pedal is applied, brake fluid moves from the master cylinder through the brake lines to each wheel. It creates the necessary pressure to cause the brake pads to close and bring the vehicle to a stop.

When the brake fluid gets low in your vehicle, you may have difficulty stopping your car. Your brake pedal may go all the way to the floor. Low brake fluid levels are unsafe and should be avoided at all costs.
