Brake fluid change

How long is brake fluid expected to last?

No time limit really. It gets contaminated rather than wearing out.

I watch for mine to change color. When its new the fluid is clear or slightly yellow. As it ages it gets darker........If you replace yours ever six months it would probably be fine. Obviously, you replace if it looks bad before this.

The other thing about brake fluid is that it does NOT circulate therefore the fluid near or in the caliper is the same fluid getting hot every time. Often this portion of fluid needs to be flushed out till clean fluid comes through.
