The most common problems that occur in the master cylinder are wear in the piston bore and piston seal failure.
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that applies braking force to all four of the vehicle’s wheels when the driver presses on the brake pedal. Seems pretty straightforward, right? But did you know that not all brake fluid formulas are created equally, and that some brands deliver better performance than others? So, what does it
When you think about the braking system of a vehicle, you probably think about the major parts you see when removing the wheel: brake pads, rotors, calipers and maybe hydraulics. However, one of the most important parts of the system isn’t visible: brake fluid. Brake fluid comes in several formulations for different applications and plays

DOT 5.1 brake fluid was developed due to the lack of acceptance of DOT 5, which is a silicone-based fluid.
Functional fluids come in many forms, and each one has very specific properties and applications.
If you ignore issues like runout and the caliper brackets when replacing the brake pads, it will result in a comeback.
TSBs are an addendum to the factory service manual and typically are the product of the OEM solving problems in the field. The majority of TSBs address problems you see at your shop including pulsating brakes, leaks and noise.
Late-model vehicle technology is changing. Wider tires, active safety systems and AWD technology are not only influencing how vehicles perform, but also the service and maintenance requirements of their functional fluids.
