The above gearhead will be demoted soon for pathetic humor attempts.

Or should we make him change HIS brake fluid?

Mine was changed just recently and is kept clean...so...thhhhbbbbpppptttt!!!! :P

Besides, my demotion has been a long time coming....I knew I couldn't be king of you forever....

And Skippy, just so you know. That is one of the mixed plus and minus things about a nice clean beautiful garage floor. You notice every minor little drop or spill (really a good thing for your car) and you notice every minor little drop or spill (it takes all your time keeping it spotless after making it so pretty).

OK, first of all, I hope you had a smile on your face when you said that. Secondly, My wife called me because she was genuinly concerned for the well being of my vehicle. She knows how much it means to me. She was serious.
She took the time to take pictures and everything. She smelled it, felt it, tasted it.....OK not tasted.... (Memories of the Cheech & Chong skit) She laughed at the post also..
Make fun at me all you want, but not my family please.
ah, no man, I think that'* a huge virtue! Albiet, I'm not married, but I know my mom would NEVER call my dad if something like that happened.

And I don't want $5 from them. I want them to go out and flush their brake lines. It will help them stop better and understand what brake fluid looks like.
I changed my vote though - after a closer look and before anyone said anything else. I'm not paying up Boosty!

IDC..if you said brake fluid...even if you changed your mind..

Head out and go change the brake fluid. Your braking system will be better for it.

This could turn into a good program. If you toss up a drastically wrong answer..you go perform maintenance on your car.

Boost, you've got a good point. I've never personally performed brake service on my car and it'* something I want to learn to do at some point.

I never did until a few months ago - had several brake issues, one after the other. I'm doing more brake work next week. It'* definitely good stuff to know.

Which is more reason why I know that that thin black fluid could never have been brake fluid Brake fluid smells worse than supercharger oil btw (IMO). You'd know if it was brake fluid!
