Brake fluid usually turns a dark brown after a while of use. It starts off fairly clear with a yellowish tint. If you suspect the brake fluid to be contaminated it should be flushed completely. Foreign chemicals in the brake system can cause problems with the seals and other rubber components in the system and possibly premature corrosion of the metal components.

Cant get rotor off 2000 mazda 626

Hammer time! all the brake rotors I've ever seen just slide on over the wheel lug studs. Your rotor could be seized on there due to rust or excessive heat. tap your way around the back side of the brake rotor and if you can put some heat to the wheel stud areas and it should pop loose. Hope this helps

Hello I have a mazda 626 2001 and my brake red light is on and my emergency brake is off

Check the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir. If it is low then the system has a leak or the brake friction material has worn down. Have the brake system checked at a shop when in doubt.

Mazda 626 - Hard to shift into gear.

With any vehicle that has a hydraulic clutch, a worn master cylinder or slave cylinder will give this very symptom. First step is to check the fluid in the resivor. If it is low, you will want to check for fluid bypassing the seals. Be sure to check under the rubber dust cover as fluid can collect there and not be readily visible. Also, if the fluid in the resivor is dark colored, it is an indication of the internal seals going bad and you will need to replace the cylinders.
