Brake Flush

Brake Flush


We know that brakes make your car stop. But how do they make it happen? Your brakes use a system of parts that work together to stop your vehicle. In that system, there is brake fluid.


Brake fluid is another hydraulic. Brake fluid will run through your brake lines and go to all four wheels. Brake fluid applies force to your brakes to stop the vehicle.

A brake flush removes all the old dirty brake fluid from your master cylinder. Then, replaces it with fresh and clean juice. Brake flushes should occur every 2-4 years or 30,000 miles.

Having your brake fluid checked often is highly recommended. It’s better to be safe than sorry! If your Brake fluid is low, you likely need brake pads or brake repair, but you could also have a hydraulic leak.


Brake bleeding is when you have all the bubbles removed from your brake lines. When there is an intensive amount of air bubbles in your brake lines, it can reduce hydraulic pressure in your braking system. You need Hydraulic pressure to stop your vehicle!   If your brake pedal is soft, or your brakes lose, have your brakes bled. This usually occurs every two to three years. Also, it would be best if you had had your brakes bled after every brake job.

There are many ways to bleed your brakes. The first is manual. This requires you to place a container under your brakes and pull the screw out while another person presses the brakes.

Another way to bleed your brakes is to use a pressurized brake fluid method. You can also attach a vacuum to the bleeder screw after you open it. The vacuum sucks the unwanted air out of the brake lines.

Sometimes, a brake bleed needs to be done using an electronic scan tool. The most popular electronic scan tool is the CarScan Pro #5610. Check out this demonstration of an OBD2 scanner being used to bleed brakes!


Before understanding how brakes work, you must know the components that make up the brakes. They are the seno, the master cylinder, brake calipers, brake fluid, brake disks, brake drums, and brake pads and shoes. All of these parts are connected using hoses and pipes.


Disc brakes consist of three parts: the brake disc, the brake caliper, and the brake pad. When you push the brake pedal, brake fluid squeezes the brake pad against the brake disc. This contact allows the car to be able to slow down or stop.


Drum brakes have three parts: hydraulic wheel cylinders, shoes, and brake drums. When you push down the brake pedal, the two brake shoes get pushed into the rotating brake drum by the hydraulic wheel cylinders.
