Master cylinder brakes fluid may need checking at regular intervals
This Brake Problems video and article written by Joyce Blay is well worth looking at. We in the garage and Autocentre sector are always advising the motorists about how they should look after their cars, but we cannot over stress the important of the cars braking system and how important it is to have your brakes checked by a professional mechanic or your local garage to avoid future Brake Problems.
The levels that are checked under your bonnet (hood) will include the level in your master cylinder. The lack of brake fluid in the Brake Master Cylinders will lead to spongy brakes and if not corrected will end up in Brake Problems and even brake failure.
So have these levels checked and if required you may need a complete brake fluid change. This is something else that is recommended by the car manufacturers at intervals, so it is well worth checking to see what intervals this job should be done at. Also if you are topping up the master cylinder yourself, make sure you use the recommended type of fluid for your model, some are different to others, your user’s manual will tell you which fluid to use.
Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years. I have worked for a couple for national tyre companies in my younger days, before starting my first business. I now own a garage and MOT testing centre, here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business. We are members of Point-S and Motor-Codes and are also a Unipart Car Care Centre and of course Tyre-safe.
