Man, I need to see that movie again!

    All I can do is focus on those shinny dent-less doors with glass in them.

    Thanks for the info. I guess Id be better to save the dot 5 for the mr2. (we drained the lines for it anyways).

    Dot 4 it is.

    See below for a bit more tech, and why you should think before you use DOT 5 in a system designed for DOT 3 or 4. I copied this off the web.

    " Water in the brake fluid also causes corrosion. Parts such as wheel cylinders and brake calipers are not too expensive to replace, but those ABS hydraulic units can easily add a thousand or more to the repair bill. Changing the fluid will not only improve braking performance but prolong the life of hydraulic brake components too.

    Silicone brake fluid, usually referred to as DOT 5, doesn't absorb moisture from the air, and it won't attack painted surfaces like glycol-based fluids if you spill it on the fender or grille, but it is not without faults. The viscosity of silicone brake fluid is different than DOT 3 and DOT 4 fluids, so most manufacturers don't recommend it for use in systems with ABS brakes. The biggest disadvantage of silicone fluid has to be that it is more difficult to seal. DOT 5 fluids will seep past seals and gaskets that would normally contain DOT 3 and DOT 4 fluids.

    One of the big advantages of DOT 5 silicone fluid is it has a higher boiling point than DOT 4, boiling at 500 degrees F. Silicone brake fluid and Glycol-based fluids should not be mixed. The complete system needs to be disassembled and cleaned before filling it with silicone fluid. "

    If the brakes on your car use DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid, I'd suggest you completely avoid using DOT 5 fluid, which I have been told produces a very unhappy jelly mixture when mixed with DOT 3 or DOT 4. (I've never actualy tried it after I was warned) What DOT 5 would do when mixed with a residue of DOT 3 or 4 if you drained the system first I also have no idea, but it seems to me that there's no percentage in trying to find out, as DOT 5 has no performance advantage, only a large potential disadvantage......

    Brake fluid is not expensive. Suggest you buy another can of the right stuff. My $0.02.

    Sweet, Ill be there eairly. Yeah im thinking about replacing the fluid. The old stuff that was borrowed from the brake master, will be returned. Recycle Reduce Reuse. I may even have a better cap to transfer the fluid .
