Jeep Liberty: Brake Master Cylinder
The fluid in the master cylinder should be checked when performing under hood services or immediately if the вЂњBrake Warning LightвЂќ is illuminated.
Be sure to clean the top of the master cylinder area before removing the cap. If necessary, add fluid to bring the fluid level up to the requirements described on the brake fluid reservoir. With disc brakes, fluid level can be expected to fall as the brake pads wear. Brake fluid level should be checked when pads are replaced. However, low fluid level may be caused by a leak and a checkup may be needed.
Use only manufacturerвЂ™s recommended brake fluid. Refer to вЂњFluids, Lubricants, and Genuine PartsвЂќ in вЂњMaintaining Your VehicleвЂќ for further information.
вЂў Use only manufacturerвЂ™s recommended brake fluid. Refer to вЂњFluids, Lubricants, and Genuine PartsвЂќ in вЂњMaintaining Your VehicleвЂќ for further information. Using the wrong type of brake fluid can severely damage your brake system and/or impair its performance. The proper type of brake fluid for your vehicle is also identified on the original factory installed hydraulic master cylinder reservoir.
вЂў To avoid contamination from foreign matter or moisture, use only new brake fluid or fluid that has been in a tightly closed container. Keep the master cylinder reservoir cap secured at all times.
Brake fluid in a open container absorbs moisture from the air resulting in a lower boiling point.
This may cause it to boil unexpectedly during hard or prolonged braking, resulting in sudden brake failure. This could result in a collision.
вЂў Overfilling the brake fluid reservoir can result in spilling brake fluid on hot engine parts, causing the brake fluid to catch fire. Brake fluid can also damage painted and vinyl surfaces, care should be taken to avoid its contact with these surfaces.
вЂў Do not allow petroleum based fluid to contaminate the brake fluid. Brake seal components could be damaged, causing partial or complete brake failure. This could result in a collision.
