Yes, moisture mixes with the brake fluid. But the moisture remains in the form of water molecules suspended in the brake fluid. As such, they are free to move around. So gravity eventually pulls them downward.I thought that BF being hygroscopic meant they mixed.
After looking at a myriad of "turkey basters" on Amazon, can anyone recommend one for PS and brake fluids?And given the screens in most BF reservoirs, you can't get the turkey baster down to where the heavier molecules are. So, the moisture is there, surrounding the port at the top of he MC, waiting first in line to be sent out toward the wheels.
This is also why the usual problem you get from not changing your BF is that your brake caliper pistons rust in place and stop working. Water works it's way to the lowest point in the system, the calipers, and corrodes the iron parts in the system.Yes, moisture mixes with the brake fluid.

Which, I'm guessing, comes from the damage happening to the brake components because of the fall off in level of corrosion inhibitor. To me, the logic is as compelling as saying I change my oil when I see the ground up bearing inserts on the dipstick. But, I'm a radical, giving credence to the Honda maint. schedule. 😱I change mine when it looks like it needs it
Yup, when you pull in, you're between two pumps.Im waiting for cars to come out that use hypergolic flex fuels. Should be a lot of fun at the pump.
