Symptoms of Dirty Brake Fluid: How to Fix It

If you’re starting to experience spongy brake pedal, chances are your braking system is becoming compromised.

Most likely this is either due to air entering the brake system, or the brake fluid has become dirty.

Another symptom to look for is brake fluid leaking out of your brake system. Check your brake lines and brake caliper bleeder screw to see if you notice signs of leakage.
