"Are all brake fluids, the same? I see this acronym DOT on brake fluids. What does this mean? Which DOT brake fluid, is right for my automobile?"

The DOT types are numbered (i.e DOT 3, DOT 4 and so forth). Basically, these differ based on the primary substance found in them, boiling point temperature and color. For those who are driving passenger cars, the glycol-based DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluids are advisable. Both DOT 3 and DOT 4 are clear (or slightly amber-colored). DOT 4 has a higher boiling point than DOT 3.

If you want to experiment with brake fluids, you should talk to our vehicle professionals, first. We can explain the boiling points, colors, chemicals and which is better. Simply, schedule your next brake fluid flush and we can discuss various DOT products. Our dealership has all of the answers for those needing high-quality brake services.
