There is water in my brake fluid resevoir why and what do i do


The braking system is fully sealed from the brake cylinders to the servo, so the only place water could have got in is from the cap on the reservoir.

Ideally, you should replace all the fluid by draining the system and refilling it. What you may be able to do though is suck all the water and fluid out of the reservoir dry it with paper kitchen towel and refill the reservoir it with fresh fluid.

I need to change coolant. How do I bleed air from the system so that I can fill it. Thanks.


Drain the coolant. Then fill resevoir and/or radiator. Then start the car. The water pump will circulate the fluid into all the nooks and crannies. With the engine on but not hot and the resevoir/radiator cap off, fill till you are at the FULL or "F" line. If it's just a radiator with no resevoir, fill to the bottom of the filler neck. You are then done.

Abs brake light on, brake light too, hard pedal, new pads and good rotors, no pressure to rear calipers? Fluid level went low, somewhere, than came back, overflowing after filling. No body can find parts...


actually you may not need to replace any parts. from what you are explaining on the vehicle you have a air lock in your brake lines. try and bleed the brakes again starting from the rear passenger than the drivers passenger than the passengers front and last the drivers front. than disconnect the negative battery cable for about 5 min to reset the lights and see what happens. please let me know if you need more assistance with this problem.

JUST WASHED THE ENGINE ,NOW I HAVE NO SPARK ON MY 88 MARK 7 LSC . WHERE SHOULD I LOOK.


Washed the engine. . All you can do is give it time to dry really. If you have no spark you got an electrical connection wet. You can go through and try to unplug stuff and blow it dry. That's about it. Needs time to dry out. Hope it helps.

Smoke rolled out from under hood, popped hood, brake fluid all over engine, cannot tell where it came from resevoir empty.. i am a poor female and hope i can fix this my self please help tell me where its...


Sounds like you found the leak already, add a little more fluid & have someone hit the brakes while sitting to confirm. That line will need to be replaced, and system will need to be bled.

Water accidently pet in power steering


You need to drain the power steering, it won't be working fine if u don't correct it now. You must remove one of the hoses, start the vehicle while someone watches the flow of fluid, as soon as it stops draining, turn off the car, reconnect the hose, and fill w/ the proper fluid. To get the air out of the lines, (after refilling to cold mark),start car, turn wheels back and forth several times, recheck level, repeat if necessary countrycurt0
