    Maybe it just started thinking it was so smart back when some guy mixed a bunch of leftover stuff in his garage and used it for brake fluid. Then he thought "Hey, I can bottle this stuff and sell it." So brake fluid started thinking it was some secret formula specialty fluid. Like transmission fluid. (Uh oh)
    Vegetable oil would probably work.

  9. Seems there’s another wave of smart brake fluid just being mean.
    Systems that won’t bleed or stubbornness of this bizarre fluid.

    Below are some basic entry level design elements of an air lock. Ancient civilizations had this licked till the smart fluid came. Stubborn brake fluid doesn’t want to let the air out of one of these. I’m sure it’s really arrogant to think that if I don’t build one of these into my brake line system that mean ole fluid will let the air by. The fluid cuts in front of the air on its way to the bleeder. Gallons of fluid go by and keeps the air in.
    That 4th example kind of looks like a frame rail. EED4EA18-6816-43DE-9A52-CBBCF74AA18B.png
    Where does this smart ass fluid go when you let the pedal up? How does it get there?

    See a frame rail? A crossmember, a 4 link bracket, possibly a c notch,,,,,

  10. I wonder if this smart brake fluid requires a code scanner to be properly diagnosed? Does anybody have an up to date code list for this new smart brake fluid? Maybe Auto Zone can retrieve the codes for us?

    This thing happens when there is no inspector or he is getting a pay off check to pass this type of work . What really is bad is probably someone was charged a large number of dollars for type of mistake . The Bastard that did this needs to stop , before someone gets hurt really badly . It’s just our world we live in to today , give me your money and I’m out of here !
