ATE Brake Fluid

Which ATE Brake fluid would be best for our trucks. Thinking of performing a flush with my spring maintenance. Opinions anyone?

Thanks
jeff

Dot 4 is the best.

Hey Jeff. I've been using this stuff for years. Alternate between the yellow and blue to see when each flush is complete.

Here's a thread I started to show the power bleeder for our trucks. Others really like the speed bleeder valves.

I flushed mine with Valvoline DOT 3/4 Synthetic. Good to go, and it was the last fluid I needed to convert to syn. Now everything in mine is syn.

Andy,
You got a part number on that pressure bleeder? How many liters of fluid did you use?

As I recall you need to pull off your master cyl cap and see if it's a 2 prong or a 3 prong cap. Then you talk to the folks at Motive Products and they make sure you get the right one.

I'm pretty sure all of our 7.3's are three prong.

My '99 Lightning is, my '00 Excursion is, my '02 F250 is, and my '03 F150 is. I think my daughters '03 Escape is too, but I haven't checked.

I just flushed my F250 and my Excursion and I used two-32oz bottles on my truck, but I used three-32oz bottles on my Excursion. I used more on the Ex because I was busy doing other maintenance items while flushing the Ex. The F250 I was only doing the flush, nothing else.

Yep -- two will do it. I used less than two for mine. Pressure bled with homemade bleeder:

Yeah, I actually used less than two-32oz bottles too. There was probably 4 or 5 ounces left from the second bottle. But it's not like you can save it on the shelf. Once a bottle of brake fluid is opened, it starts to absorb water so I was always taught to throw away any remaining fluid after a flush.
