as long as you use dot 3 or dot 4 (both aren't synthetic) you should be ok. make sure its from a sealed container, not something thats been sitting in your garage for years since brake fluid absorbs moisture

shouldn't need a flush. Like nickmak said, as long as it's clean and from a sealed container

If you don't know which standards the two were based on then a flush is a pretty damn good idea.

Dot 3, 4 and 5.1 can be mixed.
Dot 5 is silicone based and cannot be mixed with the other 3 types.

As long as the fluid is from a fresh bottle, all is good. Just make sure you flush the fluid once a year.

What cars come with anything but Dot 3 these days? I can't think of any offhand but it's usually only in the owner's manual.
