Brake fluid flushes are a regular maintenance procedure for your car, but are they necessary and how often should you do them? In this article, we’ll answer these questions and more about brake fluid flush procedures.
What is a brake fluid flush?
A brake fluid flush is a service performed by a mechanic on your car to clean the brake system. Brake fluid contains both water and oil, so it needs to be kept clean in order to prevent sludge from forming. A brake fluid flush clears away any debris and contaminants that may have built up over time, which will improve braking performance.
When is a brake fluid flush required?
Firestone does not typically perform brake fluid flushes, but there are some situations where one may be required. A brake fluid flush is typically required when the brake fluid has low levels of corrosion inhibitors or if the brake pads have been in use for a long period of time without being replaced.
What are the benefits of a brake fluid flush?
Firestone does a brake fluid flush for all makes and models of vehicles. The flush is a safe and easy way to keep your brakes working at their best. Here are some of the benefits of a Firestone brake fluid flush:
– Your brakes will work better and last longer.
– It’s an easy way to keep your brakes in great condition.
– Flushes remove any built-up residue and dirt that can cause your brakes to stop working properly.
How much does a brake fluid flush cost?
Firestone does brake fluid flushes for $129.95. This service includes a full brake system flush and inspection.
What should be done before and after a brake fluid flush?
Before: Checking the brakes: Ensure that the brake pads and rotors are in good condition and that there is no debris on them. If the brakes are dirty, you may need to clean them before flushing the fluid.
After: Flushing the system: Remove any dirt, dust, or other items that may have accumulated in the reservoir and lines. Open the bleed screw on each caliper (if applicable) and allow the brake fluid to flow out. Close the bleed screws and fill the reservoirs to the recommended level with new brake fluid. Replace any cap or plug that was removed during fluid flushing.
