Your car's brake system is one of the most important pieces of safety equipment it has. That's why it's so important to keep the brake fluid in good condition.

Definition of Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that transfers the force from your foot on the brake pedal to the brakes themselves. When you press the brake pedal, it pushes brake fluid through a system of hoses and pipes to the brakes at each wheel. The pressure of the fluid activates a piston in the brakes, which creates friction that slows down or stops your car.

What Happens When You Run Out of Brake Fluid?

If you run out of brake fluid, your brakes will not work. The pedal will feel soft, and the car will not slow down or stop when you press it. This is extremely dangerous, so it's important to check your brake fluid level regularly and top it up if necessary.
