    So its been a few years since I have had my brake fluid changed and I was thinking it is time. I believe every 2 years is the recommended time rotation. Anyway, while I was at the dealer I asked how much, they told me 120! I said that is like 2 or 3 times what others charge. Pep boys wanted 45, just brakes 40 and firestone is 75. I asked what is the difference? They were not sure. WTF!

    Just bleed the brakes yourself....that's the only way to flush the fluid out.
    Same procedure as bleeding,cept you're not looking for airbubbles. YOu're just flushing out fluid.
