      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    CMAX 1.8 TDCI 2005
  1. which is the correct brake fluid to use for cmax 1.8tdci 2005 ........ i thought it was Dot4 But i recently purchased some online from a ford dealership . On supplying my reg they informed me that i required super dot 4 and not Dot4. I can find nothing in owners manual and also on filler cap it has dot 4 .....so i am a little mistified to which is correct and if either is ok or can be mixed? So if anyone can enlighten me to which is the correct brake fluid it would be much appreciated
