SOURCE: transmission fluid in brake system

Your braking system will need to be flushed (all of the brake fluid completely removed) and refilled. If left in the braking system, the wrong fluid could end up ruining the brake calipers, brake master cylinder, rubber brake hoses, and other brake components – leading to brake failure.

Do the 2008 chevy hhr have brake fluid

Your 2008 Chevy HHR does take brake fluid. The fluid type is DOT-3 Brake Fluid. The brake fluid reservoir is a small white plastic container. The cap will read DOT-3 or brake fluid, on it. This reservoir will be found against the drivers side firewall. I hope this helps you. Your owners manual has this information inside, if it is available.

Where do i put brake fluid ?

The brake fluid is to be filled in the brake fluid reservoir.The brake fluid reservoir is fitted on the master cylinder with separate chambers for the primary and secondary circuits.
In cars with a manual gearbox, the brake fluid reservoir serves as the reservoir for brake fluid used in clutch system. A brake fluid level switch is mounted on the brake fluid reservoir. The Level switch contains a float magnet which affects a reed element that closes an electric circuit and warns the driver regarding the condition.The master brake cylinder, which is mounted on the brake servo unit, contains a secondary
and primary piston.

When I put my foot on the brake the pedal goes all the way to the floor, but the car stops. The brake light does not show as a problem on the dash board.

This is a very dangerous situation.
First check under the hood at the Master cylinder reservoir. This contains the reservoir of brake fuid for your hydraulic braking system. It has marking on how full it should be. Use DOT-3 brake fluid for regular passenger cars. Fill the reservoir up to the proper mark, and replace the cap. Pump the brake pedal and see if it gets stiffer.
Also see if there are any leaks around the tires, the fluid is supposed to be in a CLOSED system. There should be no leaks.
If air has somehow gotten into the brake fluid system, this can cause VERY serious problem. Fluids (hydraulic) do not compress, but air does. The air will cause the system to act delayed as the air finds a way to release the pressure (ie by moving a brake cylinder) ( hence the late braking)
My suggestion would be, check the reservoir 1st, then take it to a shop and have the brakes bled.
No side trips, straight to the shop!!!!!

My clutch pedal is extremely soft, and has started to stay on the floor. Is there something that I can do to rectify the situation until I can get it to my mechanic? Help!

Honda uses hydrolic clutches. Pop the hood and there should be a reservoir of "clutch fluid" (clutch systems use brake fluid) next to the brake fluid reservoir. It will be marked DOT 3 just fill that up with brake fluid and you'll be good to go.

Is there a special way to bleed the brake system on a 2001 catera

  1. Place a clean shop cloth beneath the brake master cylinder to prevent brake fluid spills.
  2. With the ignition OFF and the brakes cool, apply the brakes 3-5 times, or until the brake pedal effort increases significantly, in order to deplete the brake booster power reserve.

Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container. Ensure that the brake master cylinder reservoir remains at least half-full during this bleeding procedure. Add fluid as needed to maintain the proper level. Clean the outside of the reservoir on and around the reservoir cap prior to removing the cap and diaphragm.
  1. Install a proper box-end wrench onto the RIGHT REAR wheel hydraulic circuit bleeder valve.
  2. Install a transparent hose over the end of the bleeder valve.
  3. Submerge the open end of the transparent hose into a transparent container partially filled DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  4. Have an assistant slowly depress the brake pedal fully and maintain steady pressure on the pedal.
  5. Loosen the bleeder valve to purge air from the wheel hydraulic circuit.
  6. Tighten the bleeder valve, then have the assistant slowly release the brake pedal.
  7. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat these steps until all air is purged from the same wheel hydraulic circuit.
  8. Repeat this procedure with the LEFT FRONT, then LEFT REAR and finally the RIGHT FRONT.
  9. Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir to the maximum-fill level with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  10. Slowly depress and release the brake pedal. Observe the feel of the brake pedal.

How to change front brake pads on a 97 landrover discovery

Remove the road wheels, clean the exterior of the calipers. Remove the split pin from the retaining pins on either side and then remove the pad retaining pins and anti rattle springs. Remove the brake pads and clean exposed parts of pistons using new brake fluid. Wipe away excess with a lint free cloth. Using a piston clamp, press each piston back into its bore ensuring that the displaced brake fluid does not overflow from reservoir.
Refit the new brake pads, retaining pins and anti-rattle springs, using new split pins to secure them. Apply the service brake pedal several time to locate pads. Check fluid reservoir and top up if necessary using correct grade of fluid.
