spongy brake pedal

Got a last minute invite to ride in Harlan Ky last saturday. Had a good ride until we decided to leave. Had to ride the brakes alot coming off the mountain and about halfway down the pedal was getting closer to the floor everytime I hit it. Had to pump them to work. After a quick ride through town they worked fine. I guess the fluid got hot? Anybody have this problem?

Yes I have. Not a good feeling. I switched to a dot 4 and no more problems.

go to a place called Geno's Garage on the net.. a diesel parts place ... they have DOT 5.1 .. it is compatible with all other DOT brake fluid [EXCEPT 5.0 which is only compatible with 5.0] and is at a very reasonable price compared to the market price.

your brake fluid heat issues will go away forever

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Now I remember that thread, heck I even took part in it, thought it was on another forum though. I'm senile at 39 yrs old. Good info, thanks

I thought the pedal next to the gas was the panic button.
