Things To Know: What Is Brake Fluid?

Ever wondered what brake fluid is or what it does? Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that is used in a hydraulic system in order to apply pressure to the brake pistons. The basic idea is, that when you apply your foot on the brake pedal, you are moving the brake fluid through the brake lines and compressing the brake pistons that are inside the brake calipers. When brake calipers are compressed, this presses the brake pads into the spinning brake rotors and stops the car.
