Ford Explorer: Maintenance / Brake Fluid Check

Ford Explorer 2020-2023 Owners Manual / Maintenance / Brake Fluid Check

WARNING: Do not use any fluid other than the recommended brake fluid as this will reduce brake efficiency. Use of incorrect fluid could result in the loss of vehicle control, serious personal injury or death.

WARNING: Only use brake fluid from a sealed container. Contamination with dirt, water, petroleum products or other materials may result in brake system damage or failure. Failure to adhere to this warning could result in the loss of vehicle control, serious personal injury or death.

WARNING: Do not allow the fluid to touch your skin or eyes. If this happens, rinse the affected areas immediately with plenty of water and contact your physician.

WARNING: The brake system could be affected if the brake fluid level is below the MIN mark or above the MAX mark on the brake fluid reservoir.

  1. Park your vehicle on a level surface.
  2. Look at the brake fluid reservoir to see where the brake fluid level is relative to the MIN and the MAX marks on the reservoir.

Note: If the brake fluid level is between the MIN and the MAX marks on the reservoir, it is acceptable.

Note: If the brake fluid level is below the MIN mark or above the MAX mark, have your vehicle checked as soon as possible.

Note: To avoid fluid contamination, the reservoir cap must remain in place and fully tight, unless you are adding fluid.

Only use fluid that meets our specifications. See Capacities and Specifications.
