How Does Brake Fluid Make Car Brakes Work?

Brake fluid is an essential part of any car's brake system. It provides the force needed to stop a vehicle at whatever speed it may be going as quickly as possible.

In modern automotive brakes, each wheel has a brake pad that clamps down on a rotor that's attached to it. The friction this creates slows the wheel to a stop. This action is performed by cylinders that are powered by pressurized brake fluid when you step on the brake pedal. When brake fluid leaks, the amount of force the brakes can apply is reduced because of the lost pressure. A loss of too much fluid will disable your car's brakes.
