Why is it recommended for the brake fluid to be changed every 2 years?
Over time brake fluid absorbs water through the air and this will reduce the boiling point of the brake fluid. Under certain braking condition especially hard or emergency braking situations this reduced boiling point will allow vapor to be formed in the brake system. This vapor can reduce the braking efficiency of the vehicle.
Additionally contaminants can build up in the system over time and potentially damage expensive parts like ABS components and SBC systems.
