Is brake fluid same as transmission fluid?
Also know, is brake fluid and transmission fluid the same thing?
Although brake and transmission fluids are both vital to proper function of a vehicle, this is essentially the only similarity they share. The fluids differ in composition, in the location of the vehicle in which they function, and in the frequency with which they should be changed.
Secondly, what can you use in place of transmission fluid? The most commonly used power steering fluid substitute is automatic transmission fluid (ATF).
Hereof, can transmission fluid be used as brake fluid?
absolutely no substitute for brake fluid, and you should use DOT4 (research if you want to verify, but it is true). P/S and ATF fluids are petroleum-based and are fairly interchangable, and the boiling point is WAY too low for brake use.
What color should transmission fluid be?
