Brake Fluid Change

Unless I missed it, in reviewing my E-350 owners manual maintenance schedule, I can't find any call out to change the brake fluid. I guess just leave it alone or is there any advice about ever changing this?

I'm using this stuff. http://www.thebrakeman.com/brake_fluid

There is a point when it can go bad I guess. You might give these guys a call. I don't know what Ford says.

Re: Brake Fluid Change

The problem with brake fluid is that is pulls moisture out of the air, and that moisture can boil and leave you with no brakes.

That said, modern brake systems are sealed tightly against air and moisture intrusion. I don't know of any current manufacturers the stick by the old 'Change Brake Fluid every 2 years' rule. I have 7 years on my brake fluid.
