Car Brake Fluid

Car Brake Fluid

Each vehicle equipped with DOT® brake fluid has its own requirements: the selection of car brake fluid must correspond to engine power, electronic braking system, and even road conditions.

Valeo DOT® Brake Fluid range provides the suitable braking fluid for most needs.

Brake fluid is the core of the braking system. It ensures that all power generated by the brake pedal, brake booster, and electronic braking systems, like ABS or ESP, is fully transmitted to each wheel.


Car brake fluid comes into contact with the heat generated by the friction material touching the wheel. Thus Premium brake fluid must resist high temperatures to avoid the “vapour lock” phenomenon.

“Vapour lock” is a reaction that happens when the temperature inside the brake system is higher than the boiling point of the brake fluid, causing a drop in braking efficiency.

This risk is why it is mandatory to regularly test the fluid in the brake system and change it as soon as the boiling point drops below 180°C

Valeo delivers aftermarket solutions dedicated to each application, thanks to a permanent focus on quality and innovation and its knowledge as a premium supplier in the automotive industry.



The most suitable product for each need:

  • Optimal resistance to boiling, far exceeding the required standards 
  • Variable contents according to vehicle requirements
  • Brand new packaging for optimised storage and quicker identification


Valeo Info:

Test the quality of Car Brake Fluid regularly with the Valeo Brake Fluid Tester and operate a complete bleed of the system approximately every two years.
