This could be very dangerous for any vehicle. When the brake fluid is contaminated, it is advisable to replace the brake fluid.
Worn brake hydraulics should not be ignored. It is very important to check the brake hydraulics regularly because it can avoid costly repairs and brake failure. The brake warning light is usually the first indication that there could be something wrong with the hydraulic braking system.
