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.

    The Master cylinder is always against the firewall directly above where the brake peddle is. So open the hood, look against the back of the engine space. It should have a yellow cap . It will be just past the battery and to the left of the battery (as you face the car). Make sure you dust off the reservoir (it's plastic) so you can see how full it is. Also make sure you have the correct type of brake fluid. Check your manual. If you still can't find it, stop by a garage and I am sure a mechanic wouldn't mind pointing it out to you. It's actually a good idea to have the brake fluid flushed out and changed every couple of years. The brake fluid is hydroscopic. It will absorb water and this can lead to corrosion.

Why do brakes go to floor but still have light pressure?


It sounds like you have air in your brake lines. This is usually caused by a very low brake fluid in the master cyclinder.
To fix this problem fill up the master cyclinder with brake fluid and bleed the front wheel brake cyclinders until the air bubbles are removed. Keep the master cyclinder topped up with brake fluid. Then bleed the rear wheel brake cyclinders until the air bubbles are removed. Don't forget to top up the brake fluid in the master cyclinder.

Where do you put the brake fluid in a 1998 Chevy malilbu


The brake fluid goes in a reservoir on top of the master cyclinder inside the firewall under the hood.

Open the hood of your 1998 Chevy Malibu and locate the brake fluid reservoir. On a 1998 Malibu, it's located on the driver's side closest to the front windshield. Open the reservoir tank and place the cap in a safe place where it won't get lost. Fill it to the fill line and not above then replace the cap and your done. Now you need to figure out where the brake fluid is going since this is a closed system and if it is low then your brakes are getting worn and more fluid is accumulating in the lines due to more travel of the brake cyclinders or you have a leak. The master cylinder should look like this picture, if you find this helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated

Where do you put the brake fluid in the engine


You never put brake fluid in the engine, brake fluid only goes in the brake master cylinder, which is on the drivers side under the hood, close to the fire wall, will have a small resivor.

Brakes how do i add brake fluid to a 2005 dodge caravan?


Hi, the brake fluid goes under the bonnet the bottle will be located at the top of the engine and it will be either side of the engine it should have a warning label on it tellin you to put only brake fluid in.
Make sure you get the right one.
If you need further assistance then give me a shout back ok and ill be glad to help.

The filler bottle should have either a clear bottle where you can see the fluid level and the top up mark or if its a black on then it will have a stick attatched to the under side of the filler cap with marks on it telling you how much to top up.
Just top it up with small amounts at a time so you dont over fill.
If you get brake fluid on any paint work it will fetch the paint off the same as paint stripper so use some rag to wipe up any spillage

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:)

Where to put brake fluid


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.

Hi!

The relay is B05. And B05 is located under the dash on the left side, just to the right of the parking brake switch.
