SOURCE: need to add brake fluid which reservoir do i add it to

Is normal because the brake pads/liners wear off ! As long you do not have a wet area by any wheel or at the master cylinder.

SOURCE: can anyone add brake fluid to the truck? is there

There is nothing special to adding brake fluid. With the hood open on the drivers side on the firewall you should see the master cylinder. The cover is either a small round cap that will just spin off or a rectangular one that will pull off. Use DOT 3 fluid and fill. Make sure no dirt falls in.

SOURCE: where is the reservior to add brake fluid to a

that is your brake fluid reservior. if you have fluid and no brake noise you may have a faulty mastercylinder. the first thing i would check is to make sure the vaccum hose to the brake booster is connected to the brakebooster and to the rear of the engine (since you did not know where your brake fluid reservior was the master cylinder is the meatal part that holds the reservior and the brake booster is the big round bubble that the master cylinder is bolted to) hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: i need to add brake fluid - where is the brake

It will be under the hood, on the driver's side, mounted on the brake booster, mounted on firewall. The master cylinder is usually silver with a plastic reservoir on top with a black plasic cap, there should be 4 steel lines coming out of it. Remove the cap and fill up to the "FULL" level on the reservoir.

Remove the cap from the master cylinder reservoir. Add DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid from a sealed container to the reservoir until the level reaches the full mark on the side of the reservoir. Reinstall the cap

How do you put brake fluid into a 2001 ford windstar?

I know it wasn't a very good engineering design, but the brake reservoir is up underneath the cowling for the windshield wipers on the drivers side. The fill cap is on top, and not easy to access. You will need a very flexible funnel (like a tranny funnel) or a small funnel you can add a piece of flexible hose to to reach the fill cap. You should never need to add brake fluid unless you have just replaced some brake pads or shoes. If the reservoir is low it would indicate your brakes are worn and need replacing soon, or there is a fluid leak in the system.

Where do i put clutch fluid?

This is for a 328, but should be the same for a 325.

Location 1 is where you add the clutch fluid. The brake fluid reservoir for both the brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder. There is a line from the brake reservoir to the clutch master cylinder.

Also, read you owners manual. It should show the same ocation pictorially.

Brake pedal travel long-slow to stop.

check your front brake pads and see if they need replaced then check your brake fluid after you change them. If you add brake fluid first you will leak brake fluid out when you compress the calipers to change the front brake pads. In the end make sure your brake master cylinder is full of dot 3 brake fluid before you drive.

1994 Crown Victoria: need to add brake fluid to master cylinder...

Why would you add fluid?
As the front pads wear,the fluid will go down, not an issue
If you keep opening the fluid resevoir,you will let moisture in.
