Top Reasons To Replace Brake Fluids!

  • Dot 3 brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts moisture. This moisture contamination causes rust and ultimately brake failure.
  • Modern brake systems are vented allowing moist air to enter the brake system. This access to moisture can corrode pistons & cups leading to failure due to leaking.
  • Low usage units are less likely to reach heat levels high enough or frequently enough to evoprate the moisture out of the lines leaving them more vulnerable.
  • This is a common occurance in ALL BRAKE SYSTEMS that use Dot 3 fluid.
  • DO NOT substitute other fluids; BE CERTAIN to flush the system every 6 months or 1,000 hours.
  • A complete brake job is $1,600. Brake fluid flush & replacement is $150.00!
  • MAINTENANCE vs. REPAIR = LOW COST OF OPERATION!
