    Default Brake Fluid for all Toyota Cars

    I've done some search for the recommended brake oils for Passo/Vitz/Boon.
    Search revealed that Toyota recommends Dot3 brake oil for all of their models like Vitz, Camry, Grand Cruiser, Hilux, etc. all the car models and recommended brake oil is Dot3 only.

    Now, in the Pak. market, the available oils are

    Dot3 LM Price Rs. 350/250ml
    Dot4 LM Price Rs. 400/250ml & Rs. 600/500ml.

    I've gone through the study of Dot4 oil and characteristically its better than Dot3.
    Dot4 is slightly expensive than Dot3, but typically Dot4 is better than Dot3 because of additional properties.


    Characteristics of common braking fluids

    Dry boiling point Wet boiling point Viscosity limit Primary constituent
    DOT 2 190 ?C (374 ?F) 140 ?C (284 ?F) ? Castor oil/alcohol
    DOT 3 205 ?C (401 ?F) 140 ?C (284 ?F) 1500 mm2/s Glycol Ether
    DOT 4 230 ?C (446 ?F) 155 ?C (311 ?F) 1800 mm2/s Glycol Ether/Borate Ester
    DOT 5 260 ?C (500 ?F) 180 ?C (356 ?F) 900 mm2/s Silicone
    DOT 5.1 260 ?C (500 ?F) 180 ?C (356 ?F) 900 mm2/s Glycol Ether/Borate Ester


    So all of friends over here, who want to change or buy the brake oil for their Toyota cars, plz go for Dot4 for better results.

    And as I mostly write that NEVER BUY OILS/FLUIDS FROM TOYOTA. Because they do not produce them. They only buy from outside, tag and make money.


    Presently the best available Brake oils are of following companies

    Liqui Moly
    PTT Performa
    KIXX

    Hope it will help.

But people who already had mind set at Guard, barely even think to change it. So when we couldn't sell, then we drop its price same as guards. But only a very few sale. Then eventually to clean the stock (of nearly 50 bottles), we reduce the price as less than guard's , but even then it was very difficult to sell.
    Eventually we ended up with loss but after that we buy big stock of Guard's brake fluid. And till today, its very running item. Well come to do biz in pak.
    How did you compare it with the other brand?

    passenger mercedes benz, bmw etc use DOT4. The only original usage of DOT5 I have seen is military or race vehicles. You can fully convert your old car system to DOT5 but that calls to replace all rubber parts with DOT5 items too.


    You can also mix DOT3 and 4 without problem.

    DOT 5 is completely different as compared to DOT 3,4 and 5.1.
    DOT 5 is a silicone based oil while others are polyethylene glycol based oils..... 3,4, and 5.1 can be mixed without a problem if operating temperature permits...

    I just got off the phone with a Toyota 3S here and they are saying it only comes in 250ml bottle (I guess referring to the same bottle which I already have) and costs 875 Rupees. I have already purchased one 354 ML bottle of Genuine Toyota Brake fluid from a reliable parts shop here for 450 Rupees. Another selling the same for 520 Rupees. I called them as well and they said Toyota brake fluid does not come in 1 liter bottles... Can you please tell me the part number written on the bottle so that I can look in more detail??

    and HAHA, I was further told by Toyota 3S on phone that it only takes ONE bottle to flush the whole brake system, it was a parts guy who inquired from someone behind him whether my car takes the same brake fluid as the rest...

    Toyota is selling brake fluid in 354 ml bottle packing. But there are two part numbers mentioned with different pricing:

    1- DOT 3 Part # 08823-80010 354 ml
    2- DOT 3 Part # 08823-80010-10 354 ml

    one is priced Rs 460 the other is priced Rs 760. I dont know wat is the difference between them.

    For full bleed and fill requires min 1 liter brake fluid.

    Thanks for the response! Strange about the added 10 there on one of the product. I think there's a typo in your post though, the DOT 3 Part no. starts with 08823.
