Read Here to Learn About Brake Fluid

Your vehicle's braking system has brake fluid that flows through the brake lines. Without brake fluid, you wouldn't be able to stop your vehicle when you apply pressure to the brake pedal. It needs to be drained and changed on a routine basis because it will degrade over time. You can learn more about brake fluid by reading our content below.

There are many kinds of brake fluid, which can make it confusing about which one your vehicle needs, but the two main types are glycol-based and silicone-based. If your vehicle includes an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), it will probably need a glycol-based brake fluid. Vehicles that don't have this feature will typically use a silicone-based brake fluid. Automobiles have different maintenance needs, which is why it is important to consult your owner's manual or speak with one of our friendly service technicians about how often it should be changed.

When your vehicle needs a routine maintenance service, such as a brake fluid change, contact our service center at MINI of Portland.
