Filthy Fluid

Dirty brake fluid already what gives? Just changed brake shoes, wheel cylinders, and flushed the rear and front brake lines: The brake fluid is dirty and its only been 2 weeks since.

Brake fluid Is pretty easy to Contaminate. Probably just leftovers from the lines or reservoir. Also the fluid absorbs moisture, which can cause color change. As long as everything is working properlyand there's no leaks, I wouldn't worry about it.

Could have just been crud knocked loose by the new fluid. Every now and then you can find a shop that has a brake fluid flush machine. Alot of people overlook it but then again alot of people don't know that brake fluid is hygroscopic and if not flushed often enough will corrode your lines from the inside out.
