I checked the clutch fluid condition in the ZR1 yesterday and it was starting to look a little on the dirty side. Am going to change it out tomorrow and wondered if any of you have used Prestolite DOT4 brake fluid to replace what is in it now or does anyone have a recommendation?

i change mine a few times a year.... keep it clean..

My stuff is at my shop.. can't remember but ya DOT4 I guess.

Google "Ranger clutch flush" USA Vette guy has made a page on flushing it.
 
About once a week, I suck the brake fluid out of the reservoir and top it up. Not as good as a total flush but at least dirty fluid is being replaced by clean stuff. The fluid does get a little off colour so the bad must be mixing with the good to some extent through clutch usage and it can't hurt. I just use any name brand DOT4 brake fluid.
 
Depends on how many times you need to flush the system. That being said, I bought a litre and flushed about 8 times and never used half a litre.
 
I am going to check youtube to see if there's a video on how to do this. I don't even know where to flush from, lol..........
 
Awesome! Thanks so much for this--I can get all sorts of videos, but sometimes I question the quality of advice I'm getting.

This is great!

Turkey baster works well ,but don't let the wife know .I do mine about every year and I pretty much agree with the YouTube video . C6's seam to have the most clutch issues do to dirty fluid.

As stated before watch your painted surfaces .
 
Very cool. I hope I have time to inspect and change the fluid in the next week. I haven't done it since purchasing the car........it's probabky dark as night,and dusty as the Sahara in there.........:-(
