Dot 5.1 is compatible with older cars. I did not know four and 5.1 were upgraded options. ~ suspected it would have been like transmission fluid F, Mercon 5, and all those others we are told never substitute.
Herpn Derpn (13 дней назад)
Dot 5. No other anwser. Abs is for people is who don't know how hard they can hit the brakes before locking up.
Visionery1 (13 дней назад)
Make sure to let the brake fluid in your hand stand for a week or so before using so the air can dissipate, you've shaken the hell out of it. :)
bcubed72 (13 дней назад)
DOT 5 sounds pretty awesome! I'd gladly give up ABS in order to have non-hygroscopic brake fluid.

MWCCS989 (21 день назад)
Lots of misinformation here...  DOT 3/4/5.1 fluids must meet a minimum standard to be classified as such, as well as chemical makeup requirements.  There at DOT 3 fluids that exceed DOT 5.1 boiling point, but because of the chemical composition, cannot be classified as 5.1...  Not all fluids are created equal...just because it has a higher number doesn't automatically mean it's better.

Higher DOT brake fluid absorbs moisture more rapidly giving it a shorter life but higher DOT also has a higher wet boiling point requirement so it's a catch 22. Fluid with higher boiling points are also more likely to leak past seals. For a daily driver it's really about balancing longevity with performance. Always look for wet temp on the bottle. Stay away from racing formulations as they are designed for frequent fluid changes... Except for Castrol SRF but that will cost you way more than it's worth for a daily driver.

DOT 5 is popular for classic and show cars. Doesn't damage paint, or absorb moisture while the car sits in storage or on display.

Bud Weiser (1 месяц назад)
They should have named DOT 5.1 as DOT6, to avoid confusion with DOT5, since the two are incompatible and unrelated. Harleys were using DOT5 exclusively for the last 30 years, until the lack of compatibility with ABS became a problem on newer models. Before that a lot of Custom build Hot-Rods used it as well. Excellent for low mileage cars that see lots of storage. Not only does DOT5 not take on moisture, it does not hurt paint finishes, with accidental spills, unlike all the others. An important benefit for expensive paint jobs on motorcycles. Scotty never mentioned that. But, good video.

So if my car calls for DOT 3 I can use DOT 4?
Andreas Andriopoulos (1 месяц назад)
For classic cars I believe it is better to use DOT 5 Silicon. I have used it on my TRIUMPH SPITFIRE MK3 1970. In addition I could not resist the temptation and i used it on my SKODA YETI 1.8 (4X4) MODEL 2012 equipped with ABS for 4 years now and I do not have a problem.

I also have a clean non offensive comment. I didn't have any DOT 4 to put in my clutch resevoir on my Kawasaki so I used a little DOT 3 and it worked fine. As a matter of fact the fluid level quit dropping and has never dropped again. Why do you think that is? I am thinking that the #4 was somehow seeping past a seal and by mixing it a little the #3 actually may have cleaned the seal well enough to stop the slow seepage. what ya think Scotty

Dot 4 absorbs moisture like crazy,,. Should be drained and flushed and refilled,, every two years,,. But at least every 4 years,,. Definitely when you replace brake pads flush the entire system and new brake fluid,,,

Hey Scotty, I have an 06 Hyundai Sonata 3.3 L that was making a timing chain rattle so I replaced all the necessary parts as well as a few that didn't need replacing because this is my daughter's car. Upon reassembly I'm getting a cylinder misfire on 1 and 3 but the other 4 are firing properly. The shop thinks the computer list it's programming. We've gone over it 3 times for loose connections or missed grounds. The coils on 1 and 3 are getting 12volts but not a ground signal. Any ideas? Randy 321 333 9127

Mineral spirits is petroleum based, but silicon oil (DOT5) is not. The experiment dipping the master cylinder gasket in mineral spirits shows you really shouldn't use a petroleum product in your brake system, but it says nothing good or bad about DOT5. Also not knowing the history of the proportioning valve you pulled apart, I don't think you can say with certainty that was due to DOT5 or a DOT3/4/5 reaction. They may have flushed that system with something when changing from DOT3/4 to DOT5 and the flush could have caused the damage. I'm not saying you are wrong, but I would like to see a more scientific approach.
