Question about Ford Expedition
When I put brake fluid in my 2000 expedition the next morning its a small amount of fluid behind the right tire. What do I need to have replaced? is it safe to drivr
First its not safe to drive and second I think you have a brake line that has a hole rusted thru it.If the brake line is not rusted I would take a look at the brake cylinder seals.

You are correct, it's not brake fluid. Check the level in your rear axle, it sounds like you have bad seals in the axles allowing the rear differential gear oil to leak inside the brake drums.
This is a heavy weight oil, 80 or 90 weight. This leakage will ruin your brake pads, and if enough leaks out, your rear differential will blow. The seals aren't expensive, but it's a lot of labor to pull everything apart to get at the seals, plus new rear brakes. My Ford ( and I'm sure your GMC) require removal of the rear axles to change the seals. Good Luck! countrycurt0

if it is sure break fluid. then you have to change break master cylinder, if your car rear wheel drive that might be shaft oil and vibration come from a worn rear wheel bearing.
