    This info should be embossed on the master cylinder cap.

    This from service express for 2012 Civic.
    I would have thought DOT 4 but service express says different.

    Could dot4 be used as an upgrade?
    Whenever I'm suffering from Insomnia, I just look at a picture of a Toyota Camry and I'm straight off.

    Hi Teeps, yes I know I'm overdue, I've done the brake fluid but I need to do the clutch fluid which i'm going to do this weekend. The question I guess I was trying to ask is, if the fluid is at the half way mark is that telling me I've used up 50% clutch life?

    Thanks

    The hydraulic clutch actuation system is self adjusting. So it would not be unusual for the fluid level to lower as the clutch friction disk wears.
    How much the level drops with normal wear of the friction disk, I do not know.

    However, a '15 model year car is now over due for brake fluid replacement, including clutch system.
    At which time the clutch fluid level should be at the full line.
    The service brake level should be returned to the level it was before the fluid was replaced. Unless new brake pads (4 wheels) were installed. Then the level should be set to the full line.

    Sorry, but I do not know the relationship between the fluid reservoir level and clutch friction disk wear.
    We could assume that is the case; but you know what happens when we assume...

    I would not worry about clutch friction disk wear, as may or may not be indicated by the clutch master cylinder reservoir fluid level, as long as the clutch is not slipping.

    Teeps, thanks for the reply. I guess I was just wondering. The clutch does not slip as far as I can tell. I'll get it replaced this weekend.

    Last I heard you should never mix Dot3 with Dot4. Is this just old news or did I miss something? Sorry I’m new.

    By my understanding, the clutch fluid raises higher in the reservoir as clutch disc wears. When it wears, the pressure plate forks push farther back towards the actuator, which in turn forces more fluid back into the reservoir.
