WHEN DO I NEED A BRAKE FLUID SERVICE?

Brake fluid performs a vital function in your vehicle. Without it your brakes won’t work. Every time you press down on the brake pedal, the fluid transfers energy from the pedal through to the cylinders or calipers where the pads press against the drums or rotors to stop the vehicle.

Brake fluid has to handle thousands of pounds or pressure, operate in constantly changing temperatures from below zero to several hundred degrees and perform perfectly every time.

Why do you need to change your brake fluid?

Brake fluid is hygoscopic – meaning it attracts and holds moisture. Excess moisture and heat can lead to fluid oxidation and deterioration. Modern brake systems equipped with Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are sensitive to the brake fluid breakdown and it can lead to system failure. More importantly, your brake system performance may be compromised when you need it the most.

A National Health Traffic Safety Administration survey found that the brake fluid in 20{13b7f4089d78c9206be66a1d2fad338a02c0cc7328cbebd1ae526a394418886d} of 1,720 vehicles sampled contained 5{13b7f4089d78c9206be66a1d2fad338a02c0cc7328cbebd1ae526a394418886d} or more water. So the risk of moisture in your brake fluid is very real and worth doing something about it.

Eliminate Moisture and Contamination

Changing the brake fluid eliminates the moisture and contamination that may be present in your brake system. Manufactures recommend the brake fluid be replaced periodically to eliminate moisture and contaminates from the system.

Testimonials

“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.”

Lavana

I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops.  After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop.  I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft.

Shirley Gordon

I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you.

Norm has been very professional.

Bob & Lynn Houle

Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us.

Kate

I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future.

Rob, Norm, Tony and their crew are as professional and trustworthy as I have seen in any profession. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to look after my vehicles. Both my wife and I take our personal and work vehicles to CarCraft. We are very grateful for their outstanding service.
