Brake Fluid


Recommended Posts

Guys, I have been replacing several parts of the front brakes on my 04 SS, and have to put new brake fluid in.  Under the hood, it says Dot3.  But I got Dot4 brake fluid...

Can I put in Dot4 without a problem, or do you advise Dot3 Brake fluid?

I'm not 100% but I'm pretty sure Dot4 brake fluid is backwards compatible for Dot3, just not the other way around. I believe it's just a better engineered fluid having a higher boiling point and longevity of life compared to Dot3. If there's not any specifics on the bottles, you could always call a GM dealer or two and see what they say.
