Changing Brake Fluid

Recommended Posts

Seeking information on changing out brake fluid myself.

How difficult?

Needed tools?

Have seen brake fluid siphons in several catalogs. Do these work?

I have done oil & filter, & air filter, so think I should be able to do this level of maintenance.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I would get a powere bleeder for about $70. I

would also think about racing fluid. I got

a recomendation to use the blue racing fluid

to prevent the boiling of the fluid. I tend to brake

pretty had at the end of the straights.

Paul,

There is no difference between the ATE Typ 200 (gold) and the ATE Super Blue. Only the color is different - the specs are the same. Switching between blue and gold is just easier to see when you are doing a flush/bleed.

Hi Loren,

Is the Typ 200 already in the car? I do want to put racing brake

fluid in the car. I do not want to waste my time if the fluid in

the car can already be subjective to race braking temperatures. I

heard that the fluid in the car is good but I want a little bit

more protection.

I like the idea of adding blue racing fluid because I like the

way the blue racing pads work. The blue pads grab better then

the stock pads and I do not want full race pads due to

all the city driving I do.
