Re: brake fluid

why don't you just go to Auto Zone and get the bigger bottle. I believe its 24 or 32oz. Why are you flushing your brake system anyways?

Re: brake fluid

Thanks for the reply, i did more researched and found that the brake fluid doesn't necessarily have to be from honda. Oh, and reason im doing the flush is because im changing my brake pads and i dont think the brake fluid been ever flushed.
