Brake Fluid Exchange

Honda Brake Fluid Exchange in Torrance, CA

We offer Honda owners in Torrance, Redondo Beach, Carson, Gardena, and Long Beach, CA a certified brake fluid exchange service. Your service at Scott Robinson Honda Service will be completed by a certified technician and genuine Honda brake fluid to specifications. Service includes removing the old fluid, inspecting the other braking components, and installing fresh brake fluid to specifications. We perform a driving test to verify the results.

Brake Fluid & Maintenance

Brake fluid is the preferred hydraulic for the automotive braking system. It is preferred because it transfers energy without compressing, which is exactly what your Honda’s brakes need for powerful stopping. Brake fluid gets the job done well, but it has two potential weaknesses that demand maintenance: leaking and contamination. If brake fluid leaks, it cannot serve as an effective hydraulic. Brake fluid also has a chemical property that loves to collect moisture. Water-contaminated brake fluid is a poor hydraulic. Brake fluid exchange service removes the bad fluid and installs fresh at peak performance.

How often does Brake Fluid Need Exchange Service?

Each Honda model comes with a routine maintenance schedule organized in the owner’s manual. Be sure to reference the schedule to know when your specific Honda model year is due for brake fluid maintenance. Most Honda models will need a brake fluid exchange every 45,000 miles or 3 years. It is equally important to understand brake fluid trouble signs and get an exchange service as needed regardless of miles or time.

Bad Brake Fluid Indicators

Brake fluid will leak from worn parts and is prone to absorbing water that contaminates its hydraulic property. If you notice any of the telltale bad brake fluid indicators, be sure to get the braking system inspected promptly, and the corrective brake fluid exchange as needed:
  • Brake system warning light 
  • The brake pedal feels different 
  • New noises when braking 
  • Burning odor 
  • Vehicle requires more distance to stop
