Default Brake/Clutch Fluid Color

I was reading some posts on here and decided to check my brake and clutch fluid. Do you guys think they need a change?

Thanks in advance for any helpful input.

Clutch:



Brake:



The brake fluid one is not the best, I'll try to take a better one of it tomorrow.

Thanks in advance for any input.

They both look like vomit.

They are clear when they are new. I would change them both.

If that 2000 is new to you I would recommend changing all the fluids unless you have a receipt showing some of them were done recently.

IF they are turning dark "fast" that means you're on your way to a leaky master and/or slave cylinder. I think the reason it changes color is because the seals start to fall apart/dust gets in/etc. Most likely your car was like mine: not driven often til you purchased it, so now that you drive it more often, the corrosion and seals are wearing all at once...

its not a hard job, at laest. go to MajesticHonda for cheap parts!
