    I know this post is for small manority of us on here that are keeping our cars but I am curious if anyone is on a schedule to change fluids. While my car only has 7,000 miles on it the years are starting to rack up. This year I am thinking of changing my brake fluid. My trans fluid was just changed this year with the converter swap and my rear diff fluid was changed when I switched to 3:73's next year I think zip will change my coolant. I bought on of the vacume pumps to change my fluid. Anyone have a recommendation on brake fluid?

    I think most manufacturers recommend 2 year intervals on brake fluid changes. I have used Castrol over the years.

    Could you put the year of your Challenger in your avatar? I am thinking you have a 2014, but I can't remember, so I am interested in this thread and always learn a lot from you guys!

    When I did my R1 Concepts install a couple years ago, I flushed and filled with StopTech Dot 4. I will probably change out next summer.

    oil every 5k, diff at 15k will do every 30k forward, will do A8 trans at 50k, brake fluid every 2yr or at pad change, coolant at 5yr

    brand on brake fluid isnt nearly as important as being fresh
