2000 Dodge Durango Q&A
2000 Dodge Durango Question: contaminated brake fluid
Contaminated brake fluid will result in most of the brake components being ruined, including the hoses and also the brake master cylinder. $1,500 does not sound unlikely or unfair, but if you are uncomfortable, the best course of action is to get a second opinion. - matte
I agree with Matt. If the brake fluid is contaminated what is it contaminated with? Has someone put some other fluid in the resivour , engine oil, power steering fluid? If the system has an incompatible fluid it could destroy the ABS components as well. I may want a second opinion and would even after repairs get the fluid changed again in six months to ensure all the contaminants are removed from the hydraulic system. - patrick mannion
What causes teh brakes to "grab" when they are wet?
