Due to work/moving, my 1980 88SW has been horribly neglected (not driven in about 3 years), but Iím going to bring her (and her 67 109SW sibling) back to life this summer.

I know the clutch pedal goes all the way to the floor in the 88, so I suspect it has dumped all its fluid. I would guess the brakes need a top up as well, given the fluid in the wheels.

I canít seem to find Castrol Dot3/4 anywhere, and I saw in another forum that they donít make it anymore. Is any Dot 3/4 brake fluid a suitable alternate? As my username implies, Iím a complete novice, but trying to learn.

In general, is it best to drain and replace all fluids that havenít already leaked out after such a long period of sitting unused?

Thanks in advance.
