Brake/Clutch bleed

I bought some Dot 4 brake/clutch fluid. I was wondering if u can swap fluid and then just pump brake and clutch pedal a bunch of times. Is it necessary to take tires off and bleed each brake.

I did. I changed to a steel braided clutch hose, had to pump the clutch like 100 times to bleed. If you are just siphoning out the brake fluid from the master this will not be necessary since the brake lines and clutch line will maintain the fluid already in them. But this would not be a complete fluid swap unless you bleed all the lines to get the old fluid out.

You need to do the full flush. This is your brakes and your clutch, two very vital and important systems, dont half *** it.

ya went ahead and did a full flush of the break calipers and pumped the clutch and break pedal and hundred times. then refilled with amsoil dot 4. Also installed a steel clutch line. Clutch feels so much better, the stiffness went away. high rpm shifts have massively improved.

Very nice. Its painful to put all amsoil fluids in the GF and I's mustangs but somehow i just sleep better at night knowing its got the good stuff in it. You may also want to look into removing the clutch assist spring if you have not already, makes a tremendous improvement in the high rpm lock out.
