  • The extreme pressure and high heat common to brake systems can push brake fluid beyond its boiling point, causing it to vaporize or "boil-off." Water contamination can accelerate the process. This leads to a spongy or unresponsive feeling in the brake pedal (vapor lock). In contrast, the unique chemistry behind AMSOIL synthetic brake fluids increases boiling points well beyond DOT standards, even when contaminated with 3.7 percent water. AMSOIL Brake Fluids maintain a stable viscosity over a wide temperature range and flow easily at the high pressures generated in today's automotive brake systems to deliver solid, reliable braking. Maximum ABS and Traction-Control Performance AMSOIL DOT 3 & 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid's low-viscosity (817 cSt) provides superior cold-weather performance and excellent ABS and traction-control responsiveness. It covers a broad range of applications and exceeds DOT 3, 4 and 5.1 specifications.
  • Water contaminates the brake system by seeping through microscopic pores in fl exible brake lines and seals and through the reservoir fi ll cap. Brake fluid itself is hygroscopic (attracts moisture). Once introduced to the system, water reduces boiling points and compromises performance. It corrodes brake parts, lines and seals, leading to eventual failure. AMSOIL DOT 3 & 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid's superior wet boiling points counteract these problems. It lubricates and protects intricate brake components despite the inevitable water contamination. A nitrogen blanket is added to each bottle during manufacturing to purge moisture and ensure the maximum level of performance.
  • Use AMSOIL DOT 3 & 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid in passenger car, light truck and powersports applications that require a DOT 3, 4 or 5.1 product. Do not mix with DOT 5 fluid. Refer to your owner's manual regarding the proper change interval for your brake fluid and to determine the correct DOT classification. Change fluid every two years for maximum performance.

Recommendations



AMSOIL DOT 3 & 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid is engineered for use in passenger cars and light trucks. It is a DOT 5.1 product, exceeding the specifications of DOT 3 and DOT 4. Additionally, its 5.1 formula provides excellent protection against water contamination. Rather than offer multiple products, we created one formula that performs best in all three applications.

DOT 3 & 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid is also the primary recommendation for powersports applications. However, if a customer consistently pushes his or her brakes to the limit in racing (or similar applications), DOMINATOR DOT 4 Synthetic Racing Brake Fluid is recommended.

Refer to the owner’s manual regarding the proper change interval for your brake fluid and to determine the correct DOT classification. Change AMSOIL DOT 3 & 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid twice a year for maximum performance. Change AMSOIL DOMINATOR DOT 4 Synthetic Racing Brake Fluid once a year for maximum performance.
