    Castrol GT LMA

    I have been using Castrol GT LMA Brake Fluid 12504 for years,
    but looks like it was replaces by Castrol 12614 Brake Fluid.

    Did anyone noticed this?
    Can we use the new version?
    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Yes, the black bottle is the replacement. I used it for my brake and clutch fluid.

    Cheers,

    It also barely mentions mentions synthetic and is no longer called GTLMA. I guess it is no better than any other DOT 4 so they had to change what it is called since they can't say it is Low Moisture Absorbing . It is still the same stuff and will work like the "old" stuff. Which means you still need to flush it out and replace it every 2 years. Brakes and clutch.

    Castrol comes in two sizes: 12oz and 32oz. What's the right amount to buy to do a complete brake flush?

    Get the bigger size, and do your clutch hydraulics while you're there.
