Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
I have a 2000 ford windstar van, and just recently the break fluid container was empty, noticed it after trying to stop and barely stopped and petal was to the floor. We checked into this a bit, neither one of us know anything about mechanics, but determined that the back drivers side tire had brake fluid all over the inside of the tire, and some brake fluid on the ground. We are sure it is a caliper, just from talking to a few people, but are not 100% sure. We keep filling the brake fluid every three days, and then have to pump the breaks alot to get any pressure in them, if we have to slam on the breaks the pressure disapears and the pedel goes to the floor and you can hear a noise coming from the brakes, but havent figured out from where exactly. I would really appreciate anyones help on this problem, like I said we are very clueless, and don't have the money to be able to just take it into a shop.
You should be able to look around each tire and see where it is coming from, let me know if any of them have brake fluid on them, if so it is a brake cylinder leaking, if the leak is somewhere else than I may can help you with that, oh and when you do find the problem I can probably save you some money on the repairs.
