Am getting ready to change brake and clutch fluid. Was in Autozone and saw the valvoline synthetic Dot 3/ 4 Brake fluid. Has anyone used this yet? Since it is rated for both, I don't know why it wouldn't work.

I've got it in a GL1200, GL1500, Cummins Ram, and Jeep Wrangler. Works fine. It's completely clear, though - sometimes tough to see in a sightglass.

I've used it on my Hurricane, with no problems. It has a higher rated boiling temperture.

Did the exact same thing last week. Called Valvoline's help line number and they told me, ALL brake fluids are now synthetic. Put it in my '99 1500 and took it for a ride today. Made it back just fine. Good Luck.

I'm with Foodman. Been using it in the bikes without problem.

The Jaguars get only Castrol GTLMA DOT4.

Thanks guys, I am now changing the fluids out. I have finished the front brake and the front brake pedal. Still have the rear brake and the clutch fluid to do. So far so good.
