Just search Autel Maxicheck Pro. It looks like eBay has the lowest price right now $180.00 free shipping..

DOT 3 and DOT 4 and DOT 5.1 are completely compatible with each other. But 5.1 is real spendy.

That said, when looking at fluids look at the container and see what it says for wet and dry boiling points. In general DOT4 is higher, but especially in the DOT4 category there are those that meet DOT4 and those that far exceed DOT 4 for wet and dry boiling points.

I've used penofin (sp?) and valvoline synthetic DOT4, both have a higher wet and dry boiling point than the min DOT4 spec.

Yes, the manual says DOT3, but since we tow heavy in the mountains, no reason I can see not to go with the best DOT4 I can find and do a pressure bleed and flush every few years on all my vehicles.

I save the DOT5.1 for my race motorcycle. A pint costs more than a quart of the best DOT4, but it does avoid some brake fade.
