Re: Cooking brakes
Yes, your fluid can be that bad but I'd suggest you need to pull off the pads, sand the surface with some garnet paper (must be garnet paper) - same with rotors, and bed them in properly. I assume you used new pads with new disks - that's probably why they seem to fade. If possible, you should bed old pads with new rotors and vice versa. Then when the new rotor and pad comes together there is more friction on the surfaces and the components can bed together better. Bedding does two things, it degasses the pad by heating it up and forcing the bonding agents to release gasses that are trapped in the pad during manufacturer and secondly it mates the surfaces of the friction components together. If one of these does not occur, then you brakes will underperform. But it could just be the EBCs.........
