My 1987 GMC 2500 Vandura has the brake fluid reservoirs directly above the master cylinder. They are both under the hood on the drivers side. They have rectangular black metal snaping caps. It takes DOT 3 fluid.

First..make sure you have the right fluid..DOT number...the reseerve is on the drivers side under the hood near the back of the motor cavity.....should be made of a very translucent white platic....make absolutely sure nothing falls into the resevoir when you're adding fluid

Bleeding brakes

If you did not have any brake fluid leak out when you changed the brake shoes, then there is no need to bleed the brakes. The bleed ports are on the wheel cylinder next to where the brake line attaches to the cylinder.

Need a wireing diagram

Ido not see a solution posted...but will offer thar your input voltage to the coil is low when cranking the engine...but when the key is restored to the run position, voltage is almost enough to fire a spark plug. Put a dc voltmeter on the 12 volt input terminal of the coil and confirm. If input voltage is ok then replace coil.

Van got hit on right side brakes were new after being hit van would not stop countinued to roll down hill until i turned van now van has no brake system now

Sounds like a broken brake line. Look for brake fluid around the area of the impact or check the master cylinder for fluid to confirm this.

It cost the same for you to do an oil change or take it some where and have them do it, about $15 - $25 take it to someone who knows what there doing, you don't want to burn your car up because you left the oil filter gasket on.
