  • Is DOT 4 brake fluid mineral based?

    DOT Brake Fluids are glycol-based and are classified by a Department of Transportation DOT number up to a 5.1. The higher the number the higher the boiling point of the brake fluid. Mineral oils are distillates of petroleum, which is a liquid by-product of refining crude oil to make gasoline.28 Mar 2020

  • Why does my brake fluid look black?

    Fresh brake fluid should be relatively clear, if not slightly golden. This is true for practically any type of brake fluid. Over time, brake fluid becomes contaminated. When the brake fluid begins to darken and turn black or brown, then you know that the fluid is becoming too old.
  • How long do brakes and rotors last?

    Using data provided by Federal Highway Administration statistics on how many miles people drive annually, typical brake pads will last between 3 and 7 years. Brake rotors last roughly 70,000 miles, but they need to be inspected for uneven wear.
