ekk my ( ! ) light flashed...

my (!) light flashed when doing a fast left hander.. which mean the brake fluid light.. i guess its not dangerously low.. just cause i had the car on about sharp angle.. anyway..
do i have to use the alfa romeo red dot 4 brake fluid.. or can i use a standard one?

Fast left hander! Fast right hander to fast left hander. ie roundabouts.

Same problem with my 156 but after checking the level I wasn't that bothered. Could do with a top up though.

Hi guys

This is usually an indication your pads are wearing thin. I wouldnt top it up 'cos when you come to change them you'll get fluid all over the place whilst pushing the pistons back. Best get the pads checked.

To stop the excess fluid comong back out of the master cyl. reservoir get yourself a 60 ml. syringe and remove about 120 ml. BEFORE pushing the slave pistons back. Also makes a good tool for collecting fluid from the bleed nipple when bleeding the brakes.
