Re: Dot 4 flush?
Apologies to the op, don't mean to hijack the thread.
I have just changed my fluid this weekend and used DOT 4. My reasons were it was compatible and allowed in the owners book, plus what I had read here. Secondly availability of DOT 3 is smaller in the UK, DOT 4 can be bought everywhere and most vehicles seem to run DOT 4.
Which means I can use the one tin to keep all my 3 cars and one Ducati topped up !
Two questions if I may ask, changing the fluid at home, me at the calliper the wife pushing the pedal ! , we can't/don't flush the ABS part, Only the device centre guys can do that ?
Should I be concerned, can air be trapped here, is it only a small qty of fluid ?
Secondly, I did the change as it looked a little dirty and I've had her 3 years now, with no record of the last change. After doing the change, hardy any air bubbles were noticed and the brakes felt sorta the same. Not super firm/hard like my old Porsche 944 did, but not supper soft either. I guess somewhere in the middle, a bit of pedal travel with progressive braking feel. But if you stamp on it hard the brakes will bite !
Does that sound about right ?
Cheers guys :-)
