Genuine Kia DOT 4 ESP low viscosity brake and clutch fluid is recommended for use in your vehicle's hydraulic braking system. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture over time and can reduce its operational effectiveness. Failure to change the brake fluid can cause the moisture content in the fluid to exceed the desired level, which lowers its boiling point and reduces brake performance.
To maintain optimal brake performance, Kia recommends changing the brake fluid every two years. Worn brake linings, discs, or drums can also reduce the braking efficiency of your Kia car.
Brake fluid plays a crucial role in transferring force under pressure through hydraulic lines to the braking mechanism at the wheels. Liquids cannot be compressed, so when the brake pedal is pressed, the brake fluid transfers pressure to the entire brake system, which applies the brakes.
It's important to note that the brake fluid must have a high boiling point due to the heat generated during braking, but it should not freeze in cold temperatures.
Braking efficiency is also part of the government's MOT test, so it's crucial to maintain your brakes properly to ensure your vehicle is safe and roadworthy.
