How often do u change brake fluid?
bumpassb (19 дней назад)
The best way to clean a conventional brake fluid spill is with water.  Also keep a pan of water near by to repeatedly rinse your hands and tools and get all that slippery crap off of everything.  I put a bunch of wet terry cloth rags under the master cylinder when I'm changing them out in case of spills.  if a caliper or wheel cylinder leaks, wash everything down with the hose before and after and wash the inside of the wheel and tire.  Final rinse all your pans, rags, tools, the car, everything with water(except your ratchets).    Brake cleaner is expensive, flammable and needs a well ventilated area.  Water's cheap...for now anyways.

Synthetic brake fluid will last longer and protect your internal seals better than using conventional brake fluid. Also synthetic Dot 4 brake fluid is a great upgrade because it flows better at colder temperature and it also protects your seals better and keeps the fluid from boiling because it has a higher tolerance to heat.

What Brake fluid do racing car use like in NASCAR, F1 or WRC Rally race?
likahmac (2 месяца назад)
what if the break fluid and clutch fluid are in the same master cylinder ?
Nemo (2 месяца назад)
ehh not all brake fluids are created equal. you can buy a premium DOT 4 fluid that is actually better than a standard DOT 5.1. what matters is the boiling point, particularly the wet boiling point. something like ATE fluid does cost more, yes, but it exceeds even DOT 5.1 spec, and the overall cost isn't that high (it's about $20 a bottle, and you usually only need one) so the question you have to ask yourself is would you rather save $10 on brake fluid, or would you rather increase your chance of dying? it's not going to be a huge increase, but any increase at all is well worth the $10 over the cheaper fluid for me. same thing goes with the pads and rotors.

Tom B (2 месяца назад)
Very nice, ????Could you resolve the old argument between just changing the brake fluid in the reservoir vs also bleeding them????? Here's my take on it: Most incompressible fluids are hygroscopic (absorbs & diffuses humidity thru-out itself) and incompressible (thus may not mix/circulate much). However since incompressible fluids are hygroscopic, any water in them should eventually molecularly diffuse thru-out them. The water will corrode steel & has lower boiling temp (& thus heat brake calipers might boil it into steam). In theory if reservoir fluid is simply replaced over long enough intervals (via turkey baster), the diffused water will approach but never reach zero. Thus the diffused water in incompressible fluids can be kept low with minimum effort.

So if you don't have an ABS system in your car you can use DOT 5 ????

My Corvette requires DOT4 for the hydraulic clutch. I think I'll switch to this when I run out of the DOT4.

I have been using DOT 5 in my 1971 Triumph since 1997, when the entire brake system was replaced. It does not damage paint, and works just fine, as such an old car does not have ABS.

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 (3 месяца 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 (3 месяца 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 (3 месяца назад)
DOT 5 sounds pretty awesome! I'd gladly give up ABS in order to have non-hygroscopic brake fluid.

MWCCS989 (3 месяца 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.

I wonder how many people have put DOT 5 in their normal cars and mixed with 3 or 4? I'm sure that it's happened a lot if someone didn't read the fine print.
