Inspecting a vehicle’s brake fluid is part of every major car service at Steves Auto Clinic.


The brake fluid is used to amplify the pressure that you apply on the brake pedal and to convert that brake pressure into brake force. The brake system in any vehicle is hydraulically operated, which means that the brake fluid becomes very important, as it transfers the brake pressure to the wheels.

Through the normal use of the brakes, the level of brake fluid in your vehicle can reduce and the quality of the brake fluid will deteriorate. Because of this it is important to inspect the brake fluid during every launch, and at Steves Auto Clinic it is an integral part of virtually every vehicle inspection and every major service, minor service and intermediate service.

Testing the brake fluid and topping up the fluid level as necessary will ensure that your vehicle brakes as it should, especially in an emergency, when you need the full stopping force to be applied.
