RE: [DMCForum] brake fluid?



You were one of the people at Brian's house upgrading Ryder's car, right?
You shouldn't have a problem doing this.  Remember though, his left front
wheel bearing fell apart when the rotor was removed and I have heard of a
few other people have this happen.

>From memory, so check this, it is recommended to use Castrol GTLMA DOT(?).
I think it's DOT4.  I found it locally at Pep Boys as Auto Zone didn't have
it.  Depending on the condition of your master cylinder, and how your bleed
the system, you may be replacing that shortly thereafter as well.

We should see about a tech session again.

Subject: [DMCForum] brake fluid?

Hey everyone,

I have a feeling I'm about to open up a can of worms. I'm tired of my
squishy brakes, so I am going to replace my stock brake hoses with SS hoses.
Now, as far as I know and can tell, this will be this first time the brake
system will be serviced. I have inspected my brake fluid, and it has the
color of maple syrup. Now, I expect to lose quite a lot of fluid when I
change the lines- what kind of fluid should I plan on putting back it the
system? 

Thanks!
