It was never serviced, every 2 years.
i purge all fluid every year
it is hydroscopic (eats water for breakfast) and most not be run over 2 years, or it breaks down, and you get, CRAP.

Why my front brakes are overheating after I replaced/serviced the rear brakes pads ?


Several possibilities exist. Most likely is that you did NOT open the bleeder valves in the rear calipers when you retacted the pistons in the rear calipers. This forces old, dirty, contaminated brake fluid back up into the system. This debris is now stuck in either the ABS control unit or the master cylinder and is causing the front brakes to be slightly applied at all times. You can try to THROUGHLY flush out the brake fluid to remove the contamination. It will take about a gallon of brake fluid to do this. That "might" fix the problem. Otherwise, you need to figure out if the problem is with the master cylinder or the ABS control unit and replace the bad unit.

Car indicated that i needed brke fluid, i checke its level and it was at the max indicator.... what is the problem, is it the sensor?


if the low brake fluid level message comes on and the master cylinder is full of the fluid, you have one of two problems. either the fluid level switch in master cylinder is bad. or there is exessive amount of debris in the bottom of brake fluid tank causing the switch not to read correctly

I changed the front passenger caliper n bleed the breaks n im not getting brake fluid to the caliper and it keeps locking up i dont know why


I would suspect a problem with the brake hose. when they collapse, it's internal, and you can't tell from the outside.it may allow you to push fluid though, under pressure, and then not allow the piston to retract, as it will not let fluid go back the other way. best way to find out, is to replace that brake hose. Good luck!

Replacing brake fluid


Brake fluid absorbs moisture, and this can rust the insides of the brake system. The moisture was not that big of deal 10 years ago, but on ABS brake systems of today, the rust and other debris that accumulates in the fluid can do lots of internal damage, and can be very costly. Brake fluid can also break down over time from excess heat that is created from within the brake system.
It is recommend flushing the brake fluid system about every 30,000 miles, or at 30K, 60K and 90k tune up. It cost about $90, but you can do it by yourself. To do this flush, open the brake lines located at each wheel and allow the brake fluid from the brake master cylinder to "bleed by gravity", as continue to feed new fluid to the master cylinder until the fluid runs clear at all wheels.You need two people do do this job. One at master cylinder brake fluid bottle under hood, adding fluid, and the other one under the car tightening up the bleeding nipples as necessary, until the discharge clears up. The discharge has to be collected in 16OZ plastic bottle via clear vinyl hoses from the bleeding nipple to the bottle. It is a good idea to replace all 4 nipples with new one. They are cheap and avoid problems in long run. Make sure to use at least DOT 4 brake fluid. Make sure to use a sealed bottle. The life of brake fluid in an open bottle is one week. If the brake pedal is spongy, then go for bleeding of the brake system, one wheel at a time. You must inspect all breaking system components, from master cylinder, up to calipers, or rear brake cylinder for any leak, or malfunction. check the status of brake lines for rust, and if necessary replace or undercoat them.

Brake Hose replacement


  • Clean around the old brake lines carefully before removing them to prevent any gunk or debris from getting into the brake line connections.
  • Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap, cover it with some plastic wrap and replace the cap. This prevents too much fluid from leaking out when changing the brake hoses.
  • Take the tire off of the car and loosen the brake lines at each end. Plug the brake line at the fender to prevent too much fluid leakage. Save the washers and reuse them after removing the old brake line.
  • Line up the new brake line hex nut with the bracket and hand tighten it before putting the metal clips back on. Tighten with a wrench after the clips are in place.
  • Make sure to torque the brake lines to the manufacturers' specifications for the brakes to work properly.
  • Repeat the process for each tire and brake line on your car.
  • Bleed the brakes as necessary after replacing the brake lines and make sure you have plenty of brake fluid in your reservoir.
