    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.

        Brake fluid is hygroscopic,absorbs water and rots the lines and anti lock system.Flush all my cars and put synthetic fluid in when the coolant is flushed.Keep my vehicles 10 years and doing little things like using synthetic fluids cuts the wear and tear down.

                                this seemed to be the best deal when I needed it , the smaller containers cost much more per ounce and its better to have too much than not enough.

                                        I'm happy to help, Teck! I was able to find that your 2011 Volkswagen Routan SE 3.6L will use approximately 2 quarts of brake fluid when doing the flush on the system. For specific procedures on bleeding your ABS system please refer to a repair manual for further details. You could also consult with a mechanic for further advice as well.

This brake fluid should work fine on your 2003 Mitsubishi galant as it is compatible with all braking systems requiring a DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid. It surpasses specifications SAE J1703, FMVSS No. 116 and DOT 4 Motor Vehicle Brake Fluid.

                                        This should work fine with your GMC. To drain the fluid out, you can open up one of the bleeder valves and pump the brakes until it stops shooting fluid out. Then close that one up and open another and do the same thing. Continue this process until you have drained all bleeder valves.

                                        Yes. All brake fluid is harmful to finishes.

                                        Yes, as far as I've ever heard, all brake fluids will mess up finishes.

                                        No i do not recommend that you mix non-sythetic with synthetic. It will not mix well.

                                        Yes, this fluid will mix fine with "non-synthetic" DOT 3 & DOT 4 fluid. However, check the fluid requirements for your vehicle. If it specs a DOT 4 fluid, do not use a "compatible" DOT 3 fluid as it has a lower boiling point & may cause problems in ABS systems. Also, NEVER mix DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluids with DOT 5 (silicone) fluid as they are not compatible. Finally, as JRW mentioned, DOT 3 & DOT 4 fluids do need flushing every 2 years because they absorb water from the atmosphere. This absorbed water will corrode your metal brake lines & components if you don't flush your fluid regularly.

                                        Valvoline reports this product mixes well with conventional fluids.

                                        Brake fluid should be replaced periodically so you may want to consider flushing the system - however this is not required.
