Just a quick thought; Euro cars (BMW especially) use colored Brake fluid that comes in green and blue.
Pentosin and CHF brands
This Motive brake bleeder is awesome. Great for single man operation. I had one before let it go, wish I still had it...affordable too.
That top one is the ATE brake fluid I use the most. If it's still made in blue, I need some of that. I bought a case(8) of the clear over the Winter, about $75 I think it was.
I had read a couple of years ago that it was not approved any longer to sell here. I didn't read that there was a US requirement that brake fluid be clear or amber. That's funny, I discovered it the first time about two years after the ban, around 2015. I only got about two cans of it then, and used the last of it a couple years ago.
If I would have found that fluid at super deal and everything else was the same, I'd use it... but, the color of the fluid is one of many different indicators of it's condition and the condition of the system it operates in. Clear fluid does make sense.
Like in Worms case here, my assumption is the rig sat for quite a while in a warm climate which caused algae to grown in the reservoir which in turn turns the brake fluid green. But if it was green or blue to begin with how could you tell without a tester if it was bad or not? Could either have been changed yesterday or be the oem 20 year old fluid in there. On my keeper vehicles, I change all the fluids first thing so I know for a fact how long they have been in there. The piece of mind knowing is worth more than the fluid to me.
Ditto, I change the fluids when I buy a vehicle, and whenever I notice a change or think it's time. Keeping a log book is the only good way to know if you own more than one care, or have a perfect memory. I need the log books.
Yeah I gotta keep a Log Book also.Can't do it for memory. LOL. I have my daily Driver on a calendar reminder for the tire rotation.
I have a question for you all. I have been searching for Water Pumps and I found an electric Water Pump. Has anyone used this and is it worth the money to get one. The only thing I see good about it that it does not need the motor running to push water thru the engine and it would give you that little bit extra if any power back to the engine. Just wondering.
I could see it for racing use, but no rational justification on the street.
My concern is more draw on the battery. Apparently the m
It would definitely free up some horsepower in the higher rpm's though.
Member @willzilla has one on his truck. He had some issues purging it, but I think its working good for him now.
