Hi, planning to do a brake fluid flush when changing brake, does anyone know how many bottles of DOT 3 do I need?? Thank you.

I just used an 1 qt bottle purchased from ebay...and was more than enough. I was planning to use 2 12 oz bottles but the price was the same for a 1 qt bottle (~ $20) and flushed more :)

If you do a complete pressure bleed flush I'd plan on buying 2 qts of DOT4. You may only need 1qt, but my previous experience on a variety of cars is that to meed my personal standards for a good brake flush I end up using more than 1 qt of fluid. It's cheap. And the time to do a very complete job after setup isn't that long.

Don't bother with Acura/Honda brake fluid. Buy a qt of Dot 4 BF from any reputable brand. 1 qt should be more than enough.
