What is Brake Fluid?

Brake fluid is a fluid that is used to stop a car or truck. It is usually blue, and it is squirted on the brakes to make them work. Brake fluid can also be used to make the car or truck stop.

Where does brake fluid go?

Brake fluid is used to help slow or stop a car. When the brake pedal is pressed, hydraulic pressure is created inside the braking system. This pressure causes the brake fluid to flow into and out of the braking system.

Brake fluid is used in different ways in different cars. In some cars, brake fluid is used to help stop the car. In other cars, brake fluid helps slow the car down. Brake fluid also helps prevent corrosion in the braking system.
