As brake fluid gets older, debris builds up in the fluid. When debris builds up in the lines it reduces the boiling point of the fluid. This can lead to complete brake failure. Brake fluid is subjected to extremely hot temperatures during the braking process. Therefore, it must have a high boiling point in order to not turn into a gas in the lines. If the fluid does turn to gas then the energy released from the brake pedal will not be converted into braking pressure. This will lead to brake failure and your car will not slow down or stop.
