The Different Types of Brake Fluid

Your brakes are vital to your vehicle and require consistent maintenance. For instance, you need to make sure there's always a sufficient amount of brake fluid in your car. Without brake fluid, you wouldn't be able to stop your vehicle. Your brake fluid is critical to your vehicle's braking system because it is needed to perform its duty in all the right conditions.

What do you mean you charge for testing??? Just to plug in the computer!

Let’s say you wake up in the morning with a terrible headache.  Your first thought, I need a doctor. You call in and state “ I’ve got a terrible headache, how much will it cost for you to fix me?”  In reality, you probably wouldn’t say that.  You understand there could be many reasons for your symptoms and that you will need to see the doctor for an examination, answer some questions, and probably run some tests before she can tell you what’s wrong and give you treatment options. This identical scenario plays out every day at auto repair facilities across the country.  When the cause of your concern isn’t obvious, like a flat tire or missing belt, your vehicle will need to go through a diagnostic process.  The average vehicle has over 30,000 parts, including several networked computers, modules, sensors, switches and miles of wiring.  Finding exactly what is wrong can be very complicated and take some time.
