Brake Flush

Brake flushTJ’s Lube & Wash offers a brake flush service to keep your car performing optimally and safely.

Brake fluid is essential for the operation of a car’s brakes. When you push the brake pedal, the brake fluid causes the brake pads to press against the rotors, making the car slow down and stop.

Over time, the brake fluid absorbs air, moisture, sludge and other contaminants and gets contaminated. Air in the brake fluid causes braking to feel spongy and significantly reduces braking efficiency. A brake system flush removes the existing fluid and moisture out of the system and replaces it with new, clean, fluid. A brake flush ensures proper brake system performance and increases the lifespan of your brake system components.

Please follow the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule and guidelines regarding fluid maintenance. It is a good practice to change brake fluid every 24,000 miles or 36 months. Always use a fluid recommended by your vehicles manufacturer (do not use silicone based brake fluids if your car needs regular brake fluid).
