On a scale of 1-10, its about a 3. It's a bolt out, bolt in item. Remove the brake linings, detach the brake line, using a flair nut wrench to avoid damage. (if frozen, remove line completely & replace. line can be cut above nut and 6pt socket can be used to remove it.). Unbolt cylinder and push it through the backing plate. Reverse process to install. When finished, re-fill master cyl and open bleeder screw on new cyl. push brake pedal down gently with your hand (do not use your foot or push can damage the master cyl) and keep it down while someone closes the bleeder. Open the r/r bleeder and do same thing. till no air comes out. repeat again at l/r.Close it up, re-fill master and your'e finished. (note: if master was dry before you began repair, re-fill and begin bleeding process at master before bleeding either rear cyl.While bleeding, closely monitor master level so you do not run dry)
Note: It is advised that brqake linings be replaced after any leak. If you cannot afford, wash linings and drum in strong soapy water & dry off before using. not as good as new, but better than oil soaked!

Brake pedal almost going to the floor and fluid coming from the rear on a 2000 Durango

Sounds like you have a leak in the drum brake wheel cylinder. They happen, and more often than you would expect.

You'll see in the pictures, one is the new part and the other shows where it is on your truck.

If the cylinder went bad, you'll see brake fluid leaking, even slightly, out of the rubber boot on either side of the cylinder.

Brake fluid is leaking from rear wheel of 2000 Ford Taurus

drum rear end i assume. It will be a leaking wheel cylinder. Fairly cheap to replace but you may also need new lineings / shoes due to them being contaminated by fluid.

Brake pedal to floor have replaced brake pads and master cylinder

Did the pedal go to the floor beforehand? Was the master cylinder leaking, and did you bleed it properly? If the master cylinder was not leaking, check your brake lines going to the rear wheels.

Leaking brake fluid from rear driver side wheel area. Whats the problem and fix? Thanks.

The wheel cylinder has a defective seal, and is leaking. A common problem due to age. Inspect the brake lines also and replace if needed. When you replace one wheel cylinder, replace the brakes and do the other side at the same time.

Clear fluid leaking from the front right side of a 2000 vw beetl

Could be brake fluid, so look at the brake fluid resevoir.
Could also be water from the evaporator, from the air conditioner.
Is it oily to the touch?

I have a chrysler neon 2000, recently I noticed that the brake oil is leaking for the left side rear wheel. what could the problem be? thanks

If it is leaking from the top area of the plate, and you have drum brakes...then the wheel cylinder is leaking.

Ok my brakes go all the way to the floor i do not know if it is the brake buster or the brakes.

Ok most likely its NOT the brake booster, some of the most common reasons for your symptoms are: a leaking line or wheel cylinder, you may see fluid on the ground or on the inside of a wheel. If you cannot find any external leaks, remove the brake drums and carefully inspect for any evidence of fluid leakage from the wheel cylinders also carefully inspect the front brake calipers for any fluid leaks repair or replace with new parts never use used brake parts under any condition, and if the level in the master cylinder remains full you have no leaks any where, then you have a master cylinder that has failed internally, Change the master cylinder and bleed the system.
