Well I not only changed the brake fluid, I changed to stainless brake lines (Stop-Tech) as well. I HATED the brake pedal feel on this car and was not about to let it go on. Brakes are as, or more important than any other component on a car........IMO. Now I'm replacing the brake pads as well. If that doesn't give me the pedal "feel" I'm looking for the rotors are next. It WILL be done right........

JET,
How much fluid did your system take? The dealer changed my brakes to ATE super blue. I supplied the fluid, and it feels like they gave me half a liter back.

GNX, you worry too damn much. yes they are a little spongy, but they were not dangerous.

It is common for a GTO to come from the factory with air in the brake lines. Brake fluid often looks dirty, could be from the long sea trip with humidity absorbtion or from the dark grease they use to install the brake components. I had to flush twice before I got the air out. The clutch looked too hard to do so I evacuated the resevoir and refilled with fresh Valvoline SynPower.

Don't know Tom, shop did it for me. I'll ask them on Wed. when they change out the brake pads.
