When to Flush the Brake Fluid

There are a few things you should check and do when your car has been in an accident. Checking the brake fluid level is one of them! Here’s why:

If the brake fluid level is low, it means that the brakes have been used a lot, and they may not work as well. If the brake fluid gets too low, the car might stop working altogether. So make sure to check the brake fluid level regularly and top off as needed!

When should I flush the brake fluid?

When your brake fluid is low, it can cause the braking system to stop working. Make sure to flush the brake fluid whenever it is low, even if the fluid looks normal.

How often should I flush the brake fluid?

When it comes to maintaining your car’s brakes, it’s important to flush the fluid regularly. Flushing the brake fluid removes any built-up residue and ensures that your brakes are working at their best. Here are some guidelines on when to flush the brake fluid:

-Every 6 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)
-If you notice any decrease in braking performance

What should I do if my car won’t stop?

If your car won’t stop, the first thing you should do is check to see if the brake fluid is low. If it is, you need to add more fluid. If the fluid is fine, but the car still won’t stop, you may have a problem with your brake pads or rotors.


If your car has a hydraulic brake system, it’s important to remember to flush the brake fluid at least once every 2 years. Brake fluid is a critical part of your car’s braking system and should not be ignored. Over time, old brake fluid can form deposits that can cause the brakes to malfunction or even fail altogether. Flushing the brake fluid will help keep your car in peak condition and ensure that you have total control when stopping on a dime.
