Hydraulic Braking and Brake Fluid 101

Automotive braking systems rely on hydraulics to get the job done. Hydraulic brake fluid allows the Hyundai braking system to transfer stopping power into the brake pads and rotors where the resistance stops your vehicle. Brake fluid is an excellent hydraulic because it readily transfers energy without compressing. If brake fluid gets contaminated by water, the water can vaporize and then allow the fluid to compress within the braking system. If the system springs a leak, the brakes will not transfer stopping power properly. Due to leaks and contamination limiting brake fluid life, it will need to be inspected routinely to ensure it has not lost integrity.


When does Brake Fluid Require Inspection and Exchange?

Hyundai recommends a full braking system inspection every 7,500 miles, which ends up being an inspection of the brakes alongside oil changes and tire rotation services with the same approximate maintenance interval. When the braking system receives an inspection every 7,500 miles, the certified technician will inspect the brake fluid. When the brake fluid is found leaking or contaminated, it will need to be exchanged to restore its integrity and hydraulic performance.

Warning Signs of Defective Brake Fluid

It is important to know the warning signs of a brake fluid problem and schedule service promptly in response to any symptoms of defective brake fluid. If you notice any of these warning signs, we invite you to get a quick inspection by a certified technician at Oak Lawn Happy Hyundai:

  • Unusual Noise – squeaks, squealing, or metallic grinding are all telltale signs of a braking problem
  • Dashboard warning light – ABS light comes on
  • Pulling – vehicle pulls to one side when braking
  • Pedal Problems – pedal develops a strange feeling that can be excessively soft or stiff.
  • Vibration – if the brake pedal, steering wheel, or entire vehicle has an excessive shake or vibrations, it is a safe decision to get a prompt inspection and fluid exchange as needed.
