Brake System Fluid Exchange

How Your Car's Brake System Works

Every Honda ever manufactured has a brake system that slows the vehicle down as needed. It is the brake system at each wheel location that applies the stopping power necessary to slow down and stop the car. Whether you want to slow down as a precautionary measure to stay within the speed limit, slow down moderately for that state trooper ahead, or lock the brakes up to prevent an accident with the neighbor's runaway dog, it is the Honda braking system getting the job done. This system is complex with many vital components all working together to send stopping power into the brake rotor as needed for excellent stopping. At the heart of your brake system's performance are brake pads and brake fluid that wear out over time.

Brake Fluid & Flushing

The lifeblood of the brake system is a hydraulic liquid call brake fluid. It is favored for its ability to resist compression, which makes it perfect for transferring the force generated by the master cylinder all the way through each caliper into the brake pads and rotor. Good brake fluid is essential for pushing the brake pads into the rotors to generate the friction needed to stop the vehicle. The problem with brake fluid is that it absorbs moisture and then becomes faulty as any water in the line boils under pressure.. Flushing contaminated fluid is essential to remove all of the contaminants in it.
