Signs of a Brake Fluid Leak That Needs Repair
A brake fluid leak may be as minor as a brake line replacement a major repair such as the brake power booster. Regardless of where the brake fluid is leaking from, inspection should not be delayed. Get it checked right away.
The most typical signs of a brake fluid leak include:
Difficulty stopping the vehicle
Brake pedal goes to the floor
Visible brake fluid leaking
Brake (ABS) warning light
The 3 main symptoms of brake fluid leaking include:
Brake Pedal Feels Off
A spongy, hard or soft brake pedal can be fluid leak or perhaps air in the braking system. Brake lines should only have brake fluid flowing through them. If there is a brake fluid leak, air may get trapped in the brake lines and disrupt brake fluid flow. A soft pedal is usually a leak. A spongy pedal is usually air.
Brake Pedal Goes To The Floor
A brake pedal that goes to the floor is not a good sign and can be several issues at play. If there is brake fluid leaking in the system hydraulic pressure is lost and will cause a sinking or soft pedal. Low brake pads can cause similar brake pedal symptoms. When in doubt with any part of your brakes, check it out.
Visible Brake Fluid Leak
Along with the last two signs, if you see brake fluid anywhere including underneath your vehicle and especially around your wheels, this means immediate inspection. If you notice the last two symptoms and there's visible brake fluid - there's a leak. Stop driving, check your brake fluid and visit us.
