I have been running this fluid in my 1987 Mazda RX7 for track days and driving schools for the last few years. It is much cheaper than some of the other high performance options and has a high dry boiling point. I have never experienced fluid boil when used in conjunction with a race brake pad.

Many other high performance fluids come in a metal container which does help with shelf life. This Valvoline fluid comes in a plastic container. Once I crack the top on this fluid, I use only the first pour in my race car and will use subsequent pours in my street cars where the fluid performance is not as cruicial and temperatures are not as extreme.

Comments about Valvoline DOT 3 and 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid (32 oz.):

This is a higher spec than usual brake fluid for almost the same price. It definitely performs significantly better than the usual run of fluids but you don't have to flush the system unlike with some. Used to be carried in more stores but it's getting a little harder to find than usual.

      1 bottle was all I needed to bleed my brakes during a brake rotor/pad job. Braking was smooth and quiet after replacing. Would definitely use again. Great price too.

      • Q:

        Hello! I just checked my owner's manual, it says that my car uses only "SAE J1703 or FMVSS No.116 DOT 3" brake fluid.

        I noticed that this product's description says "Surpasses specifications SAE J1703 and FMVSS No. 116".

        In this case, can I use this product to top off (i.e. to mix with the old fluid) the reservoir?

      • Q:

        Hello. I have a 2010 eTon Beamer III 50cc Scooter. The manual says to use Dot-3 SAEJ1703 brake fluid. When I do a google search this product came up but I notice that this product says DOT 3 but also DOT 4 and Synthetic. I am not sure if it is compatible with my scooter because of the DOT 4 and Synthetic descriptions. I appreciate any help with this. Thanks for your time as well. Amanda

        I have a 1957 chevy bel air. I just went through the complete brake system, hoses, wheel cyclinders, shoes. The brake master cyclinder and brake booster were rebuilt as well. It has the original style Tradelvac power brake system.(Old School) Would it be better going with this or just a straight DOT 3 only brake fluid. Thanks.
