How to Check Brake Fluid Levels
Your cars brake system relies on numerous parts to stop your car when you need it, all of which would be completely useless without brake fluid pumping through the system. When you step on the brake pedal it is the release of this fluid that will ultimately lead to stopping your spinning tires. Making sure there is enough brake fluid in the system is essential to ensuring that your brakes work every time you need them to.
Why Use a Fluid?
While it may seem like direct force would be a much easier solution to stopping your car than the indirect use of a fluid, there is good reason why cars brake systems are not designed that way. Liquids don’t compress when you apply pressure and you don’t feel their force at work. On the other hand, consider how you stop another moving object like a bike. When you use your feet to try and stop its motion you feel those vibrations as the bike slows down and stops. The same would hold true if a mechanical set up initiated by your foot stopped your car except at a much greater force.
Why Does the Level Matter?
Like mentioned above, without brake fluid your entire brake system becomes obsolete. But there is another reason to check the level. Air in the brake lines will cause a delay in your braking time. When you allow the brake fluid level to get too low you are risking air entering the system through the reservoir. Keeping it full prevents that from happening.
