What is a brake system flush all about?

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 includes removing the existing fluid and moisture out of the system and replacing it with new, clean, fluid. A brake fluid flush ensures proper brake system performance and increases the lifespan of your brake system components.

Keep in mind:

A mobile mechanic will use a hand-held vacuum pump and/or atmospheric pressure to remove the fluid. While it is not as powerful as a pressure bleeder, this is an industry approved method of bleeding your brakes. It gets the job done and provides the convenience of a mechanic coming to you.

How it's done:

  • Remove contaminated brake fluid
  • Add new brake fluid
  • Bleed the brakes
  • Clean any surfaces where brake fluid has spilled during the bleeding process
  • Check for fluid leaks
  • Inspect brake pads, rotors and hoses
  • Test drive car

Our recommendation:

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).

What common symptoms indicate you may need a brake system flush?

  • Brake fluid appears black or brown indicating contamination
  • Brake pedal feels spongy
  • Diminished brake system performance

How important is this service?

If you do not regularly flush your brake system, it will end up costing you more money down the road. As the fluid becomes contaminated, it will eventually cause brake system components to fail and leak. This will also lead to diminished brake system performance, causing a safety concern.

Loved loved the experience and all communication. Russell informed me where he is and asked more questions before he showed up so to make sure he doesn’t need something extra for the appointment. Exchanged my battery, took looks at all other pieces and it was done very very easy. Definitely would hire him again if need it!

2013 chrysler [200](/topics-200/) convertible. Recently had the [transmission](/topics-transmission-chrysler/) rebuilt and this is the first time I've taken it on a long trip at hwy speeds. I've noticed a strong vibration only when accelerating at hwy speeds. Took it into shop and got new set of tires, balanced, and they said they Had to shift the subframe to do the alignment because when they did the transmission they likely didn't center it properly. Did all that ($650) and it still shakes and appears to be getting worse. Take my foot off the gas and it stops. I have 450 miles to get home and have stopped at a motel for the night. The place that did my transmission said to bring it in and they'll check it over but I don't know if I should drive it 450 miles like this.
