Question Brake Fluid interval

How often is the DOT3 fluid supposed to be changed? I own a 5 speed manual 2006 PT.

Thanks in advance

I would change it every 2 years, yank the wheels and bleed all 4 corners, takes about a qt. If you have never done it, you will see how bad the fluid looks the first time.

like stated above, every couple years you are supposed to flush the system...
