  • Brake Fluid Change

    Porsche recommends the brake fluid in your car should be changed every two years; brake fluid is hydroscopic and absorbs water over time. Also the moisture in the system can lead to corrosion of parts like the ABS modulator. Brake fluid is subjected to very high temperatures, especially in the brake callipers. Castrol Dot 4 brake fluid has a dry boiling point of around 230 deg C Castrol SRF race fluid used on track day cars has a boiling point in excess of 300 deg C.
    It must have a high boiling point to avoid vaporizing in the lines as more and more water is absorbed into the fluid the wet boiling point gets nearer to 100 deg the boiling point of water.
    This vaporization is a problem because vapour is highly compressible relative to liquid, and therefore negates the hydraulic transfer of braking force - so the brakes will fail to stop the car.
