Brake Service Done Right with Brake Fluid Test Strips
One of the major problems and concerns with servicing brake fluid is the issue of customers returning to the service center because the job wasn’t done correctly. Not only is this a huge problem for the customer, but it’s a problem for the service center. Avoid this problem by using brake fluid test strips.
The root cause of this problem can be traced to not having the proper tools to make sure the brake fluid was tested and changed properly.
Brake fluid test strips are designed to make services center more efficient, and increases customer satisfaction with their brake service. The Brake fluid test strips made by Phoenix systems are called BrakeStrip.
BrakeStrip is a 60-second test that identifies serious brake system problems before they occur – thereby ensuring your customers’ safety while earning their trust and loyalty. BrakeStrip also uses Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) guidelines for brake fluid test results. Plus, BrakeStrip is recommended by manufacturers like Bendix Brakes and Raybestos. No other brake fluid test finds bad brake fluid as often as BrakeStrip.
Show customers you really stand behind your work, and use BrakeStrip to give them proof that their brake service was done right. BrakeStrips are easy to use. First dip the BrakeStrip into the brake fluid.
Next compare the brake fluid test strips to the color chart. Then change the brake fluid, re-test and provide the customer with the brake fluid test strips and result card. This will set the customers mind at ease knowing their brake fluid was serviced correctly.

Most people don’t know they need to change brake fluid. It’s not in their maintenance manual. No one has ever told them or showed them why they need to change it. So why?
When you step on your brake is the pedal right at the top only goes down about two maybe three inches before you begin to stop? If not, if you have to pump your brake pedal or it sinks to the bottom then changing you brake fluid is imperative.
Why brake fluid wears out
Brake fluid wears out just like oil, antifreeze or power steering fluid. We all change these as a matter of maintenance. Brake fluid wears out because of heat every time you step on your pedal you are creating heat.
Every time you step on your pedal you are causing your brake pads to close on the rotor which causes friction and friction creates heat. This heating and cooling of your rotor in turn heats and cools your brake fluid. How many times a day do you step on your brake pedal? Eventually your brake fluid wears out and you begin feeling that mushy pedal or you have to pump your pedal to stop or those brake pads seem to wear out quicker then you think they should.
Test brake fluid don’t guess
If this is happening to you test your brake fluid. Many Garages today have a test they can do to check the condition of the fluid and for a nominal cost they can change your fluid and give you a good strong pedal at the top and make your car safe.
Visit your local dealer or garage to get your brake fluid tested with BrakeStrip from Phoenix Systems.
