Understanding BRAKE FLUIDS

How to choose the most suitable brake fluid for your car

Most drivers today are concerned about the boiling temperature of their brake fluid, and not too concerned if it meets DOT specifications or not.
This is ok for drivers who only use their cars at the race circuit. Ordinary drivers who frequently drive their cars on ordinary streets should be more concerned if their fluid meets DOT specification. Brake fluid that do not meet DOT specification can speed up the deterioration of brake components over a extended period time. It can also lead to the malfunctioning of ABS during cold weather. Most people do not know much about brake fluid, and it can be hard to find relevant information to learn more about it.
