Where to put brake fluid

I have a 2001 dodge caravan and I need to put brake fluid in. The only problem is that I cannot locate where the reservoir is. I don't have a driver's manual, since I bought it used. Please help!

When you open the hood it will be on your right side near the windshield. you will need a long funnel because of the way it is tucked under the wiper blades. If you have to add brake fluid then you either have a leak or your brakes are so low that the fluid has dropped enough to make the light come on the dashboard. Have it checked out by an experienced person.

How to drain the brake fluid of 2005 dodge caravan 3.3 L

If you want to change the brake fluid yourself, follow these steps
  1. Remove the old dirty fluid from the master cylinder reservoir

    Use a cheap turkey baster for this

  2. Use a lint free cloth to wipe out the reservoir

    Do this only if you can get in there

  3. Pour new brake fluid into the reservoir just until it reaches the Full line, replace the cap on the reservoir.

    As you bleed the brakes which you can find out how to do elsewhere on this site the new fluid pushes the old fluid out of the system. Continue to bleed the brakes until you see clean clear fluid exiting the bleeder screw

I can't find, in the engine, where to put the brake fluid? I don't have the owners manual.

The brake fluid reservoir sits on top of the master cylinder and is on the drivers side in the rear of the engine compartment against the firewall. You can see a picture here:

I have a 99 dodge grand caravan 3.3 liter it is leaking where you put brake fluid in the cap around the plastic what to do

Around the plastic. At the cap or under the reservoir? Rinse it off with water, and watch it for a day. There is an "O"ring under the cup, but I think it maybe nothing to worry about. Brake fluid is water soluble so it will cleam up fine. Don't get any on your paint and rinse everthing off thorouglyAll cars have sweating around that part, even the rectangular reservoirs. The cap/cover is ventented and the fluid expands when it heats up. So never fill to tje top, Leave about 1/4 in from the top for expansion. This will help fluid from getting vented out..

I need to add brake fluid to the master cyclinder

Open the hood. Look on the drivers side. Find the Battery. Now as you are facing the vehicle go just to the left and a bit farther in than the battery. There is a yellow cap with the Brake symbol on it. That is the reservoir for the Master Brake cylinder. All the check and fill points have a yellow caps. ie transmission oil, eng oil, rad coolent, brake fluid, and power steering fluid.

Where to put the break fluid?

This is usually located under the hood on the driver's side of the car, toward the back of the engine compartment. Imagine where your brake pedal would end up if it went all the way through to the engine. The brake master cylinder is a small (about 6-by-2 inches), rectangular piece of metal with a plastic reservoir and a rubber cap on top, and small metal tubes leading from it.

The rectangle reservoir on the top of the master cylinder is where you fill. just take the top cap of the reservoir.

Please rate and god bless:)

The brake reservoir is underhood. You'll see it mounted to the firewall at the back of the engine bay, in front of the driver's seat position. It's the only reservoir there, and sits on top of a cylinder made of metal. Should say something like DOT3 or DOT4/5 FLUID ONLY on it - that's the brake reservoir.
