Question about 1988 Lincoln Mark VII
RESERVOIR IS FILLING IT'S SELF LOOKS DARKER AS WELL BOOTH ANTI-LOOK &BRAKE WARNING LIGHT'S ON
This is sometimes a "MAJOR" concern on Lincoln Cars.There is an article which is as follows :-
Component Service Brakes, Hydraulic:Power Assist:Hydraulic
Consequence of Defect under certain conditions, contacts in brake system relay could remain closed, causing the brake pump motor to run continuously, causing it to overheat and eventually fail. consequence of defect: should the brake supply motor fail, the power assist to the front brakes will be lost, and after about 10 to 15 normal brake stops, loss of rear brake function will result, causing increased stopping distance. however, the instrument brake warning light will illuminate prior to reduced braking capability and if warning is not heeded, an accident may occur.
Corrective Action Recall Notes replace pump motor relays.
There is a possibility of the steering fluid being leaked. However, that's not a rare scenario.
Check and let me know.

Sounds like the pressure switch is going bad to me, it is located on the lower left side of the motor assy. and it's a real pain to get out. IF you have to bleed the brakes you have a leak somewhere.

Make sure the reservoir has fluid. A 1/4" drive ratchet and correct metric socket work good on the bleeder. When bleeding, never press the peddle more than 1/2 way down. When you go all the way down the master cylinder seals travel into territory with tarnish buildup. If you do/have you will probably be needing a master cylinder soon. Antilock brakes complicate bleeding sometimes. Just filling the reservoir and letting it set with the bleeder open allows the fluid to gravity down. Also, screw the bleeder clear out, maybe the hole in it is plugged.
