Brake system flushing is the process of removing old brake fluid and replacing it with new, clean fluid.
Why is it needed?
Over time brake fluid wears out, due to the nature of the brake system and fluid it self. The brake system on a car produces heat when stopping; both from the friction of the brake shoes or pads and from the hydraulic force used to apply them.
Brake fluid, used in most cars, is hygroscopic. This means it draws moisture from the air. This extra moisture can corrode the metal components in your brake system and reduce their lifespan.
Old brake fluid, reduces your braking performance. This may not be noticeable in typically driving, but emergency situation, every inch counts to avoid a collision.
ABS components are sensitive to moisture with the braking system. Changing your fluid reduces the risks of damage to these components.
How much will it cost?
The typical cost for flushing a brake system is between $80-120 for parts and labor.
This price range is averaged across all passenger vehicles. The actual cost depends on your specific make, model and year. Depending on your specific vehicle, this cost may be lower or higher. This cost estimate is for the specific repair listed and doesn’t include additional, related items that may require repair.
