JLTV: Updated PMCS Intervals for Brake Fluid Replacement

BLUF:  PMCS intervals for brake fluid replacement in JLTVs have been changed to every two (2) years, regardless of brake fluid appearance.

TACOM MAM 23-002 advises units with JLTVs to replace the brake fluid in their vehicles if the fluid is aged two (2) years or more, regardless of how it looks (you'll need your CAC to access the MAM).

That’s because JLTVs use DOT4, which is a polyglycol brake fluid that absorbs water, unlike silicone brake fluid that’s used in other vehicles.
Make a note until TM 9-2320-452-23&P (Feb 19) is updated with the new brake fluid replacement intervals.
