SOURCE: under the hood, the reservoirs.

If your vehicle is a stick shift, likely it's the master cylinder for the clutch. stick your finger in there and see if it smells and feels the same as what's in the brake master. If it appears low, check where the clutch rod goes into it in the drivers side of the firewall. If you find some fluid there its leaking. (also check line and slave cylinder that works the clutch) Could also be steering fluid but I've never seen them put that there.

SOURCE: have oil in my radiator fluid reservoir tank (1996 v6 3.8)

Twice in two years now my Saab 9-5 has had a pin-hole in the oil cooler, which has caused oil to flow into the reservoir. A way to tell is if coolant/oil is coming out of the reservoir cap. The reservoir cap is rated for the pressure of the coolant system, which is significantly lower than the oil pressure. When there is a hole in the oil cooler, oil will be forced out at relatively high pressures, causing the reservoir to fill and then over pressurize and spill out of the cap.

SOURCE: low brake fluid light remains on even though fluid

was it ever low? if so then the float inside the reservoir is most likely stuck down causing it to keep the light on. if not the float switch may be bad.

If you look at the drivers side of the brake fluid reservoir you should see a rubber hose that feeds to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master cylinder is kept full via the brake fluid reservoir.

Break light coming on dash. Goes off and on. Is it safe to drive? What do I check for under the hood? and where?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

We are sorry that you are having issues with your Toyota.

What you are describing, the brake light illuminating on and off may be due to s low brake fluid condition in the brake master cylinder reservoir.

There is a sensor in the master cylinder that monitors the quantity of the brake fluid present. As the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionately.

What you can do:
Open the hood, and closely examine the fluid level in the plastic reservoir on the brake master cylinder. It is located at the engine side of the firewall, pretty much in line with your turn signal switch. Look at the side of the cylinder reservoir. There will be a "MAX" line, and a "MIN" line.
The Max is the proper fill level.

If the fluid level is close to the Min line, you probably need some front brake pads replaced.
This indicates a low fluid condition in the reservoir.

We would not suggest 'topping off' the fluid, just to extinguish the light. When you do get your brake pads replaced, the extra fluid will be forced out of the top of the reservoir, and the brake fluid will get on the paint under your hood. Brake fluid will damage your paint.

Suggestion: Get the front brake pads checked, replace them if they are worn.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to get back to me.

How do i release the brake caliper pistons to be able to fit new brake pads on a renault trafic 08 van. thank you


Renault trafic brake calipers on the front can be pushed in with a G-clamp, but rear calipers need to be wound in, if you look at the piston it has notches for a winding tool!

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
