Assuming by "brake fluid container" you mean the master cylinder, sometimes it is necessary to use a small funnel with a piece of tubing attached. This device frequently can be found in auto parts stores.

Fiat stilo abarth 2.4 semi-automatic gearbox what type of clutch fluid is used


The clutch in the Fiat stilo abarth selespeed uses the same fluid as the braking system. Just find the container in the engine bay with the braking fluid. And top up with ''DOT 4 Brake & Clutch Fluid'' Note it's not the oild for the Gearbox or selespeed. You should never touch the container that holds the fluid for the Selespeed.

Parking brake light is on


The light can come on when the brake fluid is low in the reservoir. Check the brake fluid level and add as necessary using only brake fluid from a sealed container.

If the fluid was low check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a possible leak in the brake system or worn out brake parts.

Where do I add the brake fluid


You add Brake Fluid in the master cylinder (see picture) It is on the drivers side against the firewall. Use DOT3 brake fluid only and do not overfill.

My car has been sitting up for five years. Recently, I had the car serviced. The brakes pedal is very low. I was told that I needed to pump my brakes in to get them to come up. I think I may need some...


The master cylinder reservoir should be close to the firewall (at the rear of the engine compartment). Brake fluid will not normally just disappear when a vehicle sits though, and you should have pedal pressure even with low fluid. Chances are that the master cylinder, or a wheel cylinder, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Where do i put brake fluid ?


The brake fluid is to be filled in the brake fluid reservoir.The brake fluid reservoir is fitted on the master cylinder with separate chambers for the primary and secondary circuits.
In cars with a manual gearbox, the brake fluid reservoir serves as the reservoir for brake fluid used in clutch system. A brake fluid level switch is mounted on the brake fluid reservoir. The Level switch contains a float magnet which affects a reed element that closes an electric circuit and warns the driver regarding the condition.The master brake cylinder, which is mounted on the brake servo unit, contains a secondary
and primary piston.

Is there a special way to bleed the brake system on a 2001 catera


  1. Place a clean shop cloth beneath the brake master cylinder to prevent brake fluid spills.
  2. With the ignition OFF and the brakes cool, apply the brakes 3-5 times, or until the brake pedal effort increases significantly, in order to deplete the brake booster power reserve.

Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container. Ensure that the brake master cylinder reservoir remains at least half-full during this bleeding procedure. Add fluid as needed to maintain the proper level. Clean the outside of the reservoir on and around the reservoir cap prior to removing the cap and diaphragm.
  1. Install a proper box-end wrench onto the RIGHT REAR wheel hydraulic circuit bleeder valve.
  2. Install a transparent hose over the end of the bleeder valve.
  3. Submerge the open end of the transparent hose into a transparent container partially filled DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  4. Have an assistant slowly depress the brake pedal fully and maintain steady pressure on the pedal.
  5. Loosen the bleeder valve to purge air from the wheel hydraulic circuit.
  6. Tighten the bleeder valve, then have the assistant slowly release the brake pedal.
  7. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat these steps until all air is purged from the same wheel hydraulic circuit.
  8. Repeat this procedure with the LEFT FRONT, then LEFT REAR and finally the RIGHT FRONT.
  9. Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir to the maximum-fill level with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  10. Slowly depress and release the brake pedal. Observe the feel of the brake pedal.

Low brake fluid - need to know location of fluid container


you have to look carefully at the lids (tops) the one that has brake fluid should read DOT 4 or DOT 5 brake fluid only. i think that should help you find it.

Brake fluid light states low.


Open your hood and look for a small container (5-6 oz) with fluid inside usually close to the front window of the car. On the top it will say Dot 3 fluid only, or something to that effect. This is where your brake fluid goes in. Fill it within 3/4 inch of the top of the "container". You should also check your brakes. It could be your fluid is low, due to your brakes being worn out. Check both front and rear.
