Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Pat, Brake fluid should be flushed. When it's new it's practically clear. Once it becomes a brown color it's time to change it. I would say to have the injectors cleaned if you are noticing a driving performance problem, otherwise, you probably don't need it. My vehicle is 20 years old and I've never done it. As for getting prices for these repairs, check out this website, it's free. Hope this helps. Lori Johnson
