How Many Liters of brake fluid to do complete flush of 930

I have 1 Litre, Liter, Litro AKA 1.056 Quarts of super Blue ATE brake fluid, Can't get the stuff any more. is this enough to do a complete flush? Can you mix BLUE and AMBER if needed? According to the "Magic Pallete Artists Color Mixing Chart" you would get a pukish green mix.

One liter has always worked for me. I use a pressure bleeder and you can see the amber changing to blue. Not too hard to see the color change if you have a clear tube. Good luck.

mixing

I would not mix the fluid...green? you would not know when the fluid got really bad....Get you a good brake bleed bottle and you will use less fluid.

1 liter should suffice. Super blue is great stuff. But mixing with ATE gold is not superb. I topped up with gold but it's on my list to bleed all of it out. It's a long list though and no issues so far.

ps. DO PLUG THE MC RESERVOIR OVERFLOW LINE... or... pressurize the system - and then - completely puke the entire Motiv Powerbleeder contents of $15dollah fluid alllllllll over your garage floor - PFFT!!! splashdripdripdrip

awwwwwwwwwwessssssssssssssome (I rule!)

I felt moar wersererer about 'that' - until - a number of infinitely more talented and wise folks here sheepishly confided in me they'd done the very same (huge d'oh!)

also note... I'm fewl enough to not have realized / noticed both the outer bleeders... AND the inners - whoops - time to rebleed - super! (blue)

I will be using the motive power bleed system. And thanks to others making the error will be blocking off the over flow line. The blue is precious stuff these days.
Thanks for the replies!

Did ATE stop making the blue stuff? I read somewhere the amber ATE stuff is the same and they make the two colors so you can tell when clean fresh fluid has made it to the caliper when bleeding them.
If you go to the Porsche dealer and buy the Porsche brake fluid it's amber.

Drain the fluid reservoir with a suction gun and then remove it and wash it out with water. Brake fluid mixes with water so thats the best thing to use for cleaning the plastic reservoir. Then blow it out dry real good with compressed air before pressing it back into the master cylinder rubber grommets.

It's good to start bleeding at the right rear caliper first for the rear ones and right one for the front ones, or depending on the vehicle the ones that are farthest from the master cylinder first.

yes, I'd read that ATE no longer manufactures the blue due to some federal legislative BS that prohibits colored fluids or some such

I've got some leftover and then I'm out

yes, they made 2 colors for that exact purpose - easy to see when fluid pulled thru when color changed

oh well

1 liter is plenty if your careful to not overbleed.

No problem mixing gold and blue.

I wonder if anyone knows if some racing suppliers are still selling the blue stuff for "racing and off road use"only?

It would be nice to still be able to obtain the blue stuff.
If anyone has a source please tell.

Fred

I drank some Super Blue because it was blue and I like blueberry juice. This recall totally makes sense.

And I drank the "gold" thinking it was whiskey...or at the very least apple juice.
