SOURCE: All of a sudden my brake pedal starting going

i think your caliper pistion is leaking at your wheel. Try to check it this way, Jack your wheel and take it off then have someone to push the brake pedal while you are looking at the caliper too locate where the oil come out from. Good luck

SOURCE: 2003 Corolla brake fluid leak.

If there is no visible leaking at the wheels around the braking assembly's, then the fluid will be leaking out he back of the blake master cylinder into the vacuum booster. The master cylinder is where you have been topping up the brake fluid and the booster is the big black thing the master cylinder is bolted to. You need to have this looked at by a mechanic for proper repair (unless you really trust someone),as brakes are something I think are important to a vehicles operation.

Just as a note, there is no need to buy a new master cylinder, as most brake places would have exchange units available.

SOURCE: Hi, two months ago low

Take it to a shop which has a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, have them put on the lift. The leak will be apparent as it will be a wet recent stain. Then you will know if you are looking at a brake line fix, a leaking master or slave cylinder.

Do not blame the guy who did the pads 10 months ago, anything he did wrong would be immediately apparent and would not take 8 months to show.

Brake pedal almost goes floor

The washer there should be a plain copper washer. Check that when you tighten the hose up that it is not twisted up and working loose .

Vacuum leaks

If you are losing Brake Fluid, do not drive this with the engine revving. Not sure what you have the leak from; but a bad Brake booster can cause only a Vacuum leak, not a fluid leak.

If the engine is revving, do not drive. Start the engine, then take a spray bottle of water and mist the intake gaskets, vacuum lines and Brake booster. A leak will pull in water and change your RPM or stall the motor. When you find out where the leak is, you can fix it.

Some of the other symptoms should clear once the Vacuum leaks are found with the exception of the Brake fluid issue.

I'm leaking brake fluid in my the rear my truck

Hello rodeure
The brake fluid can leak from a few places in the rear. Bad wheel cylinder/brake hose or the most likely cause, a rusted brake line.
Fill the master cylinder and have somone step on the brake while you
look under the truck. When you find the leak, the best thing to do is to
replace the lines up to the front valve (they don't rot in one spot) then
bleed the brakes and you should be good to go. Hope this helps.

Wheel is locking up on 88 ranger

U need to pull the rear drum off to see what's going on. Check to see if the brakes and drum look wet. There may be a leak in the brake cylinder or axle seal. The leaking oil/brake fluid can cause what u describe. Does this happen all the time, or only after using the brakes for a while? If there is some type of fluid leak, it needs to be fixed, and your should replace the brake shoes and all hardware. Let me know what u find, or if u need further help.
