With the reimplementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in the Greater Manila Area or NCR+, people are practically encouraged to stay indoors for the whole of the Holy Week. If you got nothing to do or your province is outside the NCR+ bubble, then now is the perfect time to check on your vehicle and make sure it is in best shape.

Clueless of what to check first? Prestone Philippines, known manufacturer of quality coolants and brake fluids in the country, shares a guide that will help you know that your ride is in good condition.

One crucial car part you need to check, especially this season, is your car’s brake system. When checking every part of your brake system, remember the importance of brake fluids since it keeps the brake system’s moving parts lubricated, metal components protected from corrosion, and hoses and seals remain in good condition.

Brake fluids are also susceptible to scorching heat. It can lead to unwanted water absorption to the fluid. When brake fluids absorb water, it can decrease their boiling point and heighten the risk of a spongy feeling in the pedal or complete brake failure.

Worn-out brake fluid can also endanger vehicles with Auto-Brake Systems (ABS) since its components are sensitive to moisture. So, make sure to keep your brake fluid fresh and use the best-quality, assuring product that’s perfect for your car.

Prestone’s DOT 4 Synthetic Hi-Temp Brake Fluid is built for systems that require high-temperature DOT 4 brake fluid. It exceeds specifications, with dry boiling point of >260C and wet boiling point of >165C, providing unmatched performance in high-temperature braking systems which provides corrosion protection for all metals within the braking system. It is suitable for disk, drum, and ABS brakes and compatible with most car models in the market now.

on from the summer heat with the Prestone’s new Asian Ready-to-Use Coolant Range, coming in three variants: Asian RED, Asian BLUE, and Asian GREEN. It is specially formulated with POAT (Phosphate Organic Acid Technology) formula that best suits your specific car make and model, providing superior boil over and corrosion protection.

Prestone also wants to remind motorists to stay cautious with the products they use on their vehicles, especially brake fluids that are possibly old or counterfeit. Using fake brake fluids can permanently damage or overheat your vehicle’s engine and cause it to lose its brake, leading to accidents.

Watch out for sellers offering products that come from unknown sources and with suspicious prices and discounts. To know its authenticity, check the product’s details, look for any imperfections, and ensure it has a PS mark or ICC stickers issued by the Philippines’ Bureau of Product Standards. Many counterfeit products also have 900ml packaging.
