Brake flush

How many 12oz DOT 3 bottles does it take to flush the entire system.

I will be flushing from the bottle using the Motive Power bleeder kit.

Thanks

I purchased a 32oz bottle of Prestone synthetic and used the whole bottle, but I did mine manually. Glad to see you are taking care of your braking system. Not many people do this maintenance and don't realize how important it is, then wonder why their brakes fade when hot.

Well it works just fine. Its kinda slow with just one person. One tip is to suck out the break reserver out first then put a some new fluid then start pumping, once your done you can fill the rest of it up.
