That’s a good theory. I read where some were using syringes to extract old fluid and replacing with new fluid to resolve their clutch issues but I would still have the dealership do it so they have a record of the issues. Many including me think the single shared reservoir for brake and clutch fluid was not a great decision. I guess this same issue exists on newer Vettes from what I have read.

I am no expert though, just read a lot.

I read alot too on this subject too. I read the syringe thread. I am going to look at it when I get home and change it out if it is not light yellow as you say. I have cattle syringes so I can extract the old fluid pretty easy. I am thinking that could be the problem. We shall see.

I never had an issue on the Corvette. I think you are correct though, shared resivior, bad idea.

I am of the thought the less the dealership touches my cars the better. I have little faith in them. I do all my own services on all our vehicles with the exception of our truck. Its a 2006 Ram 2500 diesel and frankly I don't feel like messing with it! Brakes, oil changes, tune ups... I have done that on the IROC, Honda and Jeep. I have done a lot on the IROC and Jeep. Both seem to always need something!

OK keep me posted on your results of fluid color and if you change it did it help. I am a little concerned about my fluid color but so far no noticeable issues. I’m sure you saw in that thread how after changing the fluid they pump their clutch to work the new fluid through.
I don’t like taking my car in for service for every little quirk or strange sound either.

Yes, but your car shares my daughter's birthday!

And I think it's better off than a Friday afternoon. I don't know about you, but I'm much more in a frame of mind to do work on Monday morning than on Friday afternoon. Or maybe that's not saying much...

So, like a school boy I rush home to check the fluid...



Not too bad i don't think. I got the car out and went for a ride. No issues at all. Flawless smooth starts, abouo 10 times. Maybe I was just out of practice. I don't know. I will try again when it gets down to like 40 as it was yesterday morning when I noticed the issue. Hell that was at 6am, maybe I was just tired. It was perfect today, 66 degrees so said the car. Time will tell but I don't think I have any problems.

How much darker is yours than mine? Mine is darker than fresh but not enough to change. I have plenty of DOT 3 in the garage but don't feel it is bad enough to mess with.

The big reveal! For the SW Ohio Folks

Followed camaro5 for awhile now reading and learning, some may know that I got my wife 2LT IOM (NMFQPP) for her birthday (#50 on 9/21). Here is the rest of the story! I ordered on blind faith, never test drove, just looked and sat in one. We stopped by the dealership and the owner’s was on showroom! We walked in and she froze in-place, and said in a whisper “I like this car!” I ordered on Jul 3rd and told could take 3 months maybe less. Went back next day (without b-day girl), dealer had allocation (no games from dealer) and I put 500.00 down and walked out fat dumb and happy! Those who have ordered know what came next, the eternal waiting, tracking, waiting still at 1100 and on and on! One day checked in and went to 3000 and had TPW 8/13. Might get it in time for birthday….Then nothing…no 3400….no 3800 and VIN, for two weeks! Did a check on the spastic, nothing? Checked the next day…..BINGO, VIN!!! Got call three days later, cars here!!! WTC, now where do you hide a new Camaro for 3 weeks? (I’m military) Hide it on base, don’t drive it, just look at it! Well, I made it!
Also part 2 of birthday gift is road trip to FL (where we honeymooned, 28 yrs ago), Daughter relocated to TN, 2 weeks before and needed her stuff moved down on Sep 19th….combine trip, drop her stuff in TN and climb in Camaro and head south! Moved the car from the base on Thursday( hidden at nursing home) in town, sneak out late Friday night, hide car on other side moving truck, do birthday card, wrap key fob in jewelry box, AND DON’T LET WIFE LOOK OUT WINDOWS OR GO OUTSIDE UNTIL SATURDAY MORNING!! Saturday we packed stuff in suitcase and she wanted to put stuff in car! Now is the time> Give her the card, and wrapped box…explain I wanted to do early due to moving daughters stuff, she buys off on that, reads card, looks at box, guesses jewelry, I smile…..she opens finds key fob…looks puzzled… I explain that I got remote start put on her Saturn Ion for birthday…and suggest we go out and try it! She presses the start button and her Saturn does not start….But the hidden out of sight camaro does!... She walks to the front of moving truck, see the camaro and asks “is that a camaro?” I say “NO, it’s your camaro, happy birthday!” She’s got the biggest smile, now! I had our destination downloaded in the OnStar…Needless to say she had a blast on the trip…and I’m her Hero! Best gal in the world, gets the best car on the market! I don’t see her much now…She’s out driving! GO FIGURE! Thanks for letting me bend your ear! Camaro5 folks you rock!

I think that is about my color now but i thought it was a lighter yellow about a month ago. Sounds like it was just a fluke.
