Brake Inspection Flush

Brake Inspection and FlushBrake Inspection Flush your brake fluid requires regular service because it becomes contaminated by moisture. Moisture contamination lowers the boiling point of your brake fluid, so, even under ordinary driving conditions, it could cause the fluid to boil and turn to a vapor in your brake system. Moisture contamination can also result in very costly repairs. Costing you thousands if you have ABS brakes. When moisture contaminated brake fluid reaches very high temperatures. Electrochemical reaction makes the fluid highly acidic. The acid breaks down the steel lines and rubber hoses and can cause early failure of the cast iron and aluminum components that make up your brake system.

Brake Inspection, Flush includes:

  • Check brake fluid for moisture and contamination.
  • Inspect all hydraulic lines and hoses.
  • Inspect calipers and wheel cylinders.
  • Inspect master cylinder and cap.
  • Clean dirt and old fluid out of master cylinder.
  • Flush old fluid out of master cylinder, calipers and wheel calipers until clean.
  • Add new brake fluid to master cylinder as needed.
  • Road test vehicle for proper brake operation.
  • Brake Inspection Flush.
  • Havoline oil.

Brake Inspection Flush includes:

  • Visually inspect hydraulic system for leaks and condition.
  • Remove all wheels and inspect brake linings, brake hardware and wheel cylinders.
  • Remove brake dust and deglaze brake shoes.
  • Adjust brakes.
  • Adjust parking brake.
  • Lubricate backing plate and adjust hardware.

Brake System Service

Service includes:

1) complete system inspection.

2) Remove old fluid with contaminates.

3) Installation od new fluids.

Clean fluid reservoir, flush out contaminated fluid and replace with new fluid. Inspect pads for even wear. Verify system operation.

Brake fluid is formulated with corrosion inhibitors to protect the hydraulic system. Over time these inhibitors are depleted reducing the protection they afford. This causes corrosion on the internal components to begin. Corrosion will pit the metal bores of the master cylinder and ABS components. This means that pistons cannot move freely, seals can be damaged and cylinders can develop internal or external leaks which will result in brake system failure and costly repairs. To maximize efficiency it is recommended to test the fluid every 24,000 km and flush the system every 2 years or 48,000 km.

Benefits:

- Help[s to prevent costly brake repairs caused by corrosion in system.

- Helps to prevent leaking wheel cylinders and seals: sticking calipers that cause premature wearing of brake pads and shoes, ect.

- reduces the risk of fluid failure.
