Flushing brake fluid is a commonly overlooked maintenance service for most car owners. Fluid should be flushed every 1-2 years as a good service plan, however checking with the manufacturer's suggestions is best. A simple way to tell if the fluid is in need of a change is by looking at the color, new fluid will have a slight yellow hue while amber is the sign of a needed flush. Because brake fluid is hygroscopic, its designed to hold moisture away from the metal internals to prevent corrosion. Like a sponge the fluid can only hold so much moisture before becoming ineffective.
