read the cap, clean off dirt clods first.

What fluid goes in the hydraulic release bearing on a 1990 jeep

If you mean the clutch throw out bearing??? No fluid goes into it, as it is sealed with grease packing inside. You may have a hydraulic clutch that actuates it, and that takes brake fluid. On the resevoir cap lists what kind. (DOT 3 or 4) This system is like a minature brake system, closed.

It may be a good idea to follow the fluid flow. First check that you can get fluid to flow from the master to the line (loosen the fitting at the master cyl while someone steps on the brake) then lock it down and move to the other end and do the same thing at the valve. then, on the outlet side of the valve. If the valve is stuck, replace it.

What kind of brake fluid is used in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited?

There is no special brake fluid, there is a couple different brands out there, just like oils, but they all meet the acms, anti, acs, whatever standards. So, but what ever you want, the walmart brand works fine, especially when you go through it like I do. Hope this helps.

Truck strains to move forward when starting from a stop.

Glad to help. Check those brake linings for any signs of burning...If they have been running too tight it is possible that they have overheated a bit. Also check the emergency brake cable for binding sometimes they get rusted up and stick.

First things first...check your fluids! Automatic trans. fluid : park brake applied, engine running in park, check dip stick. Fluid should be at full mark and brite red with no smell of burn. Report back with fluid condtions, a little leg work goes a long ways...

Where is the brake fluid cap and line located?


The "brake fluid cap" is the rubber cover of the brake fluid reservoir on top of the brake master. It would look like the black cover of the image below.
The brake line would be the two tubings from the master brake cylinder, one to the front, the other for the rear.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
