Brake fluid question
Ok guys, and gals, I have read it here many times about changing your brake fluid. I know many of you suggest it every so often. WHY? Its fluid inside a sealed system. Unless you overheat it or damage a component some how I don't see the reason to replace it. Now granted I am more of a "if it ain't broke don't fix it" kind of guy but I do preform regular basic PM, oil and filter as well as plugs and air filters but I have never replaced brake fluid. I know the manual suggests it but car manuals also suggest replacing tranny fluid, and engine coolant periodically. Both of which I have never done. Someone please explain the reasons why I should do it. I for one have never heard of an accident or vehicular problem because "his brake fluid was old and worn out" If it TRULY needs to be done I will do so but to me it's one of those things that once I am done I will be telling myself, "Well that was a waste of time. No purpose at all in what I just did" I will be doing my normal spring service soon so if I am going to do it now would be the time.
