You are watching: What type of brake fluid does a ford f150 take


Owners hands-on says to use high performance period 3. The cap on the brake fluid reservoir claims to use only DOT 4. I"m not sure just how much that a distinction is however I feel favor I need to use period 4.

DOT 3 and also DOT 4 are compatible with each other. Dot 4 usually has actually a higher boiling point.Napa"s HD period 3 fluid has far better specs than a the majority of other dot 4, at a very great price.

When in doubt, constantly choose DOT4. The is "backwards compatible". You have the right to use DOT4 in a DOT3 or DOT4 specified system however you don"t ever before want to use DOT3 in a DOT4 specified system.

I will agree the DOT5.1 is some good fluid but it is expensive and really commonly gets perplexed with DOT5. Unsuspecting customers have actually accidentally to buy the silicone based fluid (DOT5) and also put that in their DOT3/4 system thinking that is DOT5.1 and also then begin having brake concerns or failure since the DOT5 has caused their system seals come shrink. Ns wish that dot would have come up through something much less confusing.... Rant over...I just deal with this complain a tiny too often, in my heat of work.
