D.O.T. number 3 is required for most vehicles and is the nly recommended fluid...even on big trucks.. do not mix fluids PLEASE>>> do not use transmission fluid because its like mixing water and oil( it wont work) only brake fluid..there are different brands but look for the D.O.T. lettering it usually goes into a small tank out front of the drivers side under the hood..if in doubt sk at the parts store...good luck..
Find the master cylinder on the driver's side under the hood. There should be a cap that you can remove to add fresh DOT 3 brake fluid into a reservoir as the brake pads and shoes wear, or if there is a leak.
Do not use DOT 3 brake fluid in a power steering pump. It will eat away all of the seals and hoses. If you are looking at power steering fluid, any power steering fluid will work. If we are talking about brake fluid, Then yes use DOT 3 brake fluid or DOT 4 break fluid. The top of the master cylinder should tell you which to use.
Dear Brake Fluid Craving........This is what you do....Run down to your local autoparts store...invest in a six dollar bottle of DOT 3 brake fluid...then walk back to your montana with fluid in hand. Open your hood......and stand there and look at your motor....while youre standing there in a stare down contest with your motor......look to your right and up towards your wiper blades a little bit. Your brake fluid master reservoir is goin to be right there on your firewall....right there at the top of the firewall just below the cowling for your wiper blades and such.It's gonna have a plastic cap on it.....normally bright in color. It will normally also say dot 3 on the cap also. Simply add a little fluid at a time from the new bottle of brake fluid until you can see the fluid level rise up in the reservoir till it's about half an inch from where the cap goes on...THERE!!! you're done!!! Easy huh? Now....after that's done I might suggest a brake check at any reputable auto shop...most give away free brake check.....low fluid normally simulates a bigger problem...low pad material...fluid leaks....etc..so......Thx for your time... I HOPE I HELPED!!!!
