1.25. A brake liquid

The brake liquid absorbs a moisture. Therefore during car operation the brake liquid takes away a certain quantity of water from air. Too big maintenance of water in a brake liquid can finally, cause corrosion of details of working brake system. Besides, thus the temperature of boiling of a brake liquid essentially goes down. Therefore it is necessary to change time in two years a brake liquid!
The prevention

At very old brake liquid it is possible, at the big loading on working brake system, occurrence of vials of steam in system. It negatively influences an overall performance of working brake system and, thereby, on traffic safety.

It is necessary to apply only the recommended brake liquid (the specification under the standard of USA FMVSS 116 DOT 4).

The brake liquid is poisonous. Therefore it should be stored only in the closed original container and especially out of reach of children. Besides, it is necessary to mean that the brake liquid destroys a paint and varnish covering.
